Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya is siding with Mike Tyson to overcome Roy Jones Jr. - when the two Hall of Fame boxers collide on November 28 in Los Angeles.

Their contest, being carried on pay-per-view, will be an eight round exhibition bout.

The 54-year-old Tyson, a former undisputed heavyweight champion, retired from the sport in 2005 - after suffering a knockout loss to journeyman Kevin McBride.

And Jones, 51-years-old and a former four division world champion, was last seen in action in early 2018.

De La Hoya last fought in 2008 and he himself is also considering the idea of a ring return.

He believes the bigger man, Tyson, will walk away with the victory. 

"In boxing, and I think Teofimo [Lopez] proved it, is that a good big guy always beats a good small guy," De La Hoya said on Instagram.

"It's always like that, so I'm going to have to go with Tyson. But it wouldn't surprise me if Jones Jr pulls something off - like he always has in his career."

Tyson and Jones was initially scheduled to fight in September. The fight was pushed back to November.

Jones had claimed the bout was delayed in order give Tyson additional time to prepare.

"I’m like, six weeks, that’s right around the corner,” Jones told Joe Rogan. "[Tyson] ain’t been fighting. I can get ready, I’m pretty sure I can get a little bit more ready than he can because he’s been inactive a lot longer than I have. So six weeks, he’s still Mike Tyson and he still can punch, but six weeks, there’s no way he can get prepared for this.

“It ain’t like I’m scared of Mike Tyson, it’s just that I know that in six weeks he had no chance to deal with me. In 12 weeks he’ll have a better chance to deal with me, but his chance is still gonna be rough, but it’s gonna be better than it would’ve been. Six weeks, he didn’t have a chance.”
