Ne-Yo will be performing National Anthem before Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. fight

Los Angeles- Grammy-Award singer and songwriter Ne-Yo will be performing the National Anthem before the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones fight.

Ne-Yo is very grateful for the opportunity, but is a fan of both fighters. “Opening for a fight of this magnitude is an honor and I can’t wait to witness one of the most noteworthy nights of the decade. I may be performing, but I am a fan at the end of the day and I look forward to witnessing this once in a lifetime lineup,” said Ne-Yo.

Despite not having many fans in attendance because of the pandemic, the celebrity boxing fight between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. has built traction around the globe. The event will have performances by Da Baby, Lil Wayne, French Montana, Wiz Khalifa, and YG

Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya will join Boxing Hall of Famer and Olympic Champion, Sugar Ray Leonard as they commentate alongside legendary boxing play-by-play analyst, Al Bernstein. “It’s surreal that I’m actually given the opportunity to witness these two LIVING LEGENDS compete ringside! I grew up watching these two boxing icons in the ring and am honored to be on the sidelines commentating on one of the greatest comeback fights of all time,” said Israel Adesanya.

The Tyson and Jones fight is the man card of the night, but they have some intriguing matches leading up to the big one. Jake Paul vs. Nate Robinson, Badou Jack vs. Blake McKernan, and Viddal Riley vs. Rashad Coulter all should be good fights.

Fight Night will be November. 28 on Pay Per view.
