Ripped in Their 50s! Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Strip Down for Weigh-in / WATCH
We gotta say, for two “old dudes,” they are ripped to the max! Yep, Tyson, 54, and Jones, 51, both look amazing for their age — really, for ANY age — as they get ready for their b ig fight tonight in LA.
Weight-wise, Tyson came in at 220.4 pounds. Jones Jr. was 210.
Internet mischief-maker Jake Paul also put on a show at the weigh-in — dressing up like a Super Saiyan from “Dragon Ball Z” … and warning his opponent Nate Robinson to not let his kids watch the fight, because it will scar them for years to come.
36-year-old Nate is a former NBA star and 3-time NBA Slam Dunk contest champion. He said he’s fighting 23-year-old Paul to prove he’s still an elite athlete.

Here’s more via TMZ:
The fight is set to go down Saturday night at Staples Center in L.A. — the weigh-in took place at a nearby hotel.
Everyone at the weigh-in site was required to undergo COVID testing — including our TMZ photog, who was also mask’d up and keeping his distance.
As we previously reported, both Mike and 51-year-old Roy have made it abundantly clear they will be trying to take each other out from the opening bell of their 8 round exhibition (available on PPV via cable and satellite, and PPV streaming at Triller).
The event is going to be insane — with performances from huge stars like Lil Wayne, French Montana, YG, Wiz Khalifa and more.

Obama Responds to His Critics Who Say He Didn’t Do Enough for Blacks / WATCH
*(Via UrbanHollywood411) – Former President Barack Obama continued his book tour Wednesday (11-25-20) with a conversation on The Breakfast Club about his record on supporting the Black Community, Joe Biden winning the election and Latinos who voted for President Donald Trump.
While discussing his record-selling memoir “A Promised Land” with hosts Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy, Obama addressed criticism that he didn’t do enough for African Americans while he was in the White House.
“I understand it because when I got elected, there was so much excitement and hope. And I also think that we generally view the presidency as almost like a monarchy. In the sense of, ‘once the President is there he can just do whatever he needs to get done and if he’s not doing it then it must be because he didn’t want to do it,’” he told the three radio hosts.
He then said he “had the statistics” to prove his accomplishments.
“By the time I left office, you had seen three million African Americans have health care that didn’t have it before. You had seen the incarceration rate, the number of Black folks in prison, drop for the first time in years… You had seen Black poverty drop to its lowest level since 1968. You had seen Black businesses rise, you had seen Black income go up,” Obama said, adding that “millions of Black folks were better off” when he left office.
