According to Jake Paul, the Mike Tyson / Roy Jones Jr. fight will feature a performance by Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Post Malone.
With Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. set to square off on September 12 in a Pay-Per-View boxing match in Triller, Tyson’s first since retirement, many have already marked their calendars for the occasion. The anticipated event is also home to the undercard fight between YouTube sensation Jake Paul and former NBA point guard Nate Robinson, a tilt meant to appeal to younger viewers unfamiliar with Tyson’s respective exploits. and Jones Jr.
Yesterday, Jake Paul sat down with the Impaulsive podcast to discuss the upcoming event, and proceeded to let some interesting facts spill out. Of course, comments of this nature should always be taken with a (minimum) grain of salt, but since you probably have some insight, there may be some credibility there. As he puts it, the fight will be rounded off with a performance by Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Post Malone, though he didn’t seem sure if Posty was confirmed.
Of course, we will have to wait and see until we get official confirmation. It should be noted that Eminem actually has a working relationship with Triller, as he used it to provoke his recent Godzilla challenge; Lil Wayne also has an account on the platform. It’s also unclear if the couple would revisit an old favorite like “No Love,” “Forever,” or “Drop The World,” or if they have been quietly working on a new collaboration to launch in the coming weeks. Either way, keep an eye out for more news on this possible development, and check out Paul’s statement below.
