Former WWE Commentator Calls Mike Tyson Boxing Return

Last night, boxing icon and WWE Hall of Famer Mike Tyson returned to the ring for the first time in fifteen years for an exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr. The fight ended in a draw, potentially setting up a rematch between the two down the line.

An interesting little tidbit for wrestling fans is that former SmackDown commentator and NXT announcer Mauro Ranallo called the action for the fight last night. PWInsider reported earlier in the day that Ranallo would be replacing Al Bernstein.

In August of this year, Mauro Ranallo announced that he would be left leaving his position as the lead commentator for the black and gold brand. The news was later confirmed by WWE, and Mauro was replaced by former Raw announcer Vic Joseph.

Along with calling wrestling, Mauro Ranallo has also called boxing and MMA fights during his career. He joined boxing legend “Sugar” Ray Leonard in calling last night’s historic fight.
