Pensacola’s Roy Jones Jr. says he may have erred in signing up to fight Mike Tyson.

“I made a mistake going in with him,” Jones told SkySports. “He’s the bigger guy, he’s the explosive guy.”

Jones will fight Tyson November 28 in Carson, California, in what is being called an eight round “exhibition.” But Jones says he preparing for a fully committed Tyson.

“When it comes time to fight, we’re going to fight,” said the 51-year-old Jones. “If it comes down to bite, we’re going to bite. Whatever has to happen, is going to happen.”

Chris Eubank Jr., the WBA middleweight champion, is in Pensacola helping Jones train for the fight.
