Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. faced off in an exhibition boxing match on Saturday night, lasting all eight rounds in the ring. The two men showed that they still have power in their fists past the age of 50 and provided entertainment for those that purchased the pay-per-view event. However, rapper Snoop Dogg stole the show with his commentary and created conversations on social media for several days.
The longtime rapper joined the commentary team and provided some much-needed humor during multiple fights. He sang hymns while Jake Paul knocked out Nate Robinson and then talked about uncles fighting at a family BBQ. Conor McGregor's coach, John Kavanagh, said that he wasn't a fan of the commentary, but the vocal majority disagreed. A multitude of Twitter users said that Snoop was the best part of the night.

Snoop Dogg actually put on a great performance at the Tyson vs. Jones fight. Old dogs still got tricks— David D #BLM (@DavidD1094) November 30, 2020
Snoop Dogg and Mauro Ranallo were a killer commentary team for Tyson's fight this weekend. Would you rather see this duo together in WWE or AEW?— Gareth Nicholas (@ConeQuest) November 30, 2020
“It’s like two of my uncles fighting at the BBQ” DEAD 💀 can Snoop just commentate over every sport from now on? I’d watch it all.— Sail Away, Sweet Suzy 🦑📝 (@SquidFiction) November 29, 2020
His commentary is better than the fight. It’s a pretty good fight for a couple of 50-somethings.— 🤷🏼♀️Andrea Bremser🤷🏼♀️ (@andreabremser) November 29, 2020

Big facts, his commentary on the Tyson fight alone was the best sports commentary I’ve ever heard 🤣— Roman Munoz (@RAM559) December 1, 2020
He is probably the most annoying commentator at @espn in my opinion. Now @SnoopDogg should be a commentator for everything, especially after that Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. 💯😂🤣 https://t.co/br3qrGfU69— BIG WASH (@BIGw357) December 1, 2020
