FITE, the global platform for sports and entertainment, has acquired the exclusive US and Canadian digital rights to carry the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr pay per view event on November 28th.

As part of the deal, FITE’s PPV platform is powering TysonOnTriller.com, the central hub for the event. Fans can buy the digital event via FITE.tv, or directly from the TysonOnTriller website, which will feature fight news, announcements, promotional videos and coming soon, a digital portal to buy the event, priced at $49.99.

The fight is the first event of a series of live sporting events produced under Tyson’s Legends Only League, a next-generation sports venture that provides full support and infrastructure to leading athletes.

“The Tyson vs Jones fight is going to be one of those iconic brawls people will be talking about for decades,” said Michael Weber, COO of FITE. “Triller and FITE are the perfect pair to deliver a flawless, no-filler fan experience worthy of this moment.”

“Triller has always been about shaking things up and pursuing our motto, ‘You do you,’” said Triller Chairman Bobby Sarnevesht. “No one embodies that motto more than Mike Tyson. We’re thrilled to be working with Tyson and Legends Only League, Jones Jr, this amazing group of athletes, and FITE to present this historic event.”
