Joe Rogan talks “interesting” Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr fight

This Saturday, November 28, Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr will fight – And UFC commentator and famed podcaster Joe Rogan recently weighed in on the bout.

“Look at how good Roy [Jones] Jr.’s hands look,” Rogan said. “Look how f**king fast his hand are, man.”
