With his victory over Trevor Berbick in 1986, the 20-year-old Tyson became the youngest world heavyweight champion in history.

Tyson was suspended indefinitely from boxing after he bit off part of Evander Holyfield's ear in a match in June 1997. Tyson regained his license after a year following a court decision.

The 51-year-old Jones' record currently stands at 66 wins and nine defeats, while his last fight was two years ago. (Anadolu)
