Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr will feature rappers DaBaby, Lil Wayne, French Montana, Wiz Khalifa, and YG

LIL WAYNE, Wiz Khalifa and French Montana are just three rappers that will be performing on Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr's exhibition bout.

Fellow artists DaBaby and YG will also take to the stage on November 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles for the fight between the two heavyweights.


Viral entertainment platform Triller – who will be live streaming the dust-up through their app – announced on Tuesday the five rappers will feature on the music bill.

Commenting on the news, five-time Grammy Award winner Lil Wayne said: "This event is going to go down in history, no doubt!

"I'm grateful to be a part of it and share the arena with two living legends.

"I'm stoked to perform and give the fans something they can rock to."

Black and Yellow singer Wiz Khalifa stated: "November 28th, I'm putting on a live show and watching two of the greats lace up their gloves, thanks to Triller."

French Montana added: "Thank you to Triller for giving me the opportunity to perform on this historic night, in the same arena as these boxing legends.

"It's truly a moment. I'm honoured and can't wait to see Tyson and Jones fight."

Tyson – who is walking out to his own song for the bout against his American compatriot – hasn't fought since his defeat to Kevin McBride in 2005.




But he is looking in peak condition as the 54-year-old showed off his stunning body transformation.

The former world champion even ripped off his top to reveal his shredded arms and abs in an interview with NFL quarterback Russell Wilson last week.

Jones Jr, 51, is also in great shape for the contest, as he shared a video of him displaying devastating hand speed.

His trainer Tom Yankello told SunSport: "His hand speed is still incredible.

"I don't think his hand speed has decreased at all, he's as fast as he was when I worked with him nine, almost ten years ago.

"His mobility is not maybe quite the same but he still has great agility, he's kept himself in great shape."
