Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr: Snoop Dogg’s commentary erupts on Twitter
The hip-hop legend performed a number of his classic songs live in Los Angeles and he was also on commentary
duty for the main event.
Snoop Dogg’s commentary won the night anyway. As Tyson and Jones rumbled through eight rounds to a draw,
it was the famed rapper handling commentary duties who put on the performance worth remembering.
Snoop’s antics, quips and all-around persona had social media practically begging him to call more sporting
events with a few NBA players demanding he get on the mic for one of their games.
One line in particular was absolutely hilarious and it was arguably the highlight of the eight-round fight.
The line in question came just over 30 seconds into the first two-minute round, Snoop delivering a hilarious
verdict on the early action unfolding in front of him.
Snoop said: “This s**t is like two of my uncles fighting at a barbecue! Grandma they out there fighting again!”
Brilliant, just brilliant. American sports television personality Stephen A. Smith was very complimentary of
Snoop’s overall input from the commentary box on Twitter.
He tweeted: “Are y’all listening to my man @SnoopDogg call this fight. I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but
I’m loving this. Snoop’s the most entertaining part of this fight. He’s doing fantastic.”
