Lil Wayne Cancels Performance at Tyson vs. Jones Fight Due to ‘Unforeseeable Circumstances’

Lil Wayne will no longer be appearing at the highly anticipated Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight. The rapper called off his scheduled performance just hours ahead of the event Saturday night (Nov. 28).

“Due to unforeseeable circumstances I won’t be performing tonight at the Tyson/Jones fight,” Lil Wayne wrote on Twitter. “Hope the event is still a success and much love to Triller.”

Lil Wayne. who just dropped his No Ceilings 3 mixtape, had previously hyped up the night when his appearance was announced earlier this month. In a statement at the time, he’d said: “This event is going to go down in history, no doubt. I’m grateful to be a part of it and share the arena with two living legends. I’m stoked to perform and give the fans something they can rock to.”

The eight-round exhibition fight between Tyson and Jones will be part of Saturday night’s four-hour live event. French Montana, Wiz Khalifa and YG are among the artists listed on the musical lineup. On Saturday night, Snoop Dogg tweeted that he’d joined the bill.

Viewing options for the fight at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, which starts at 9 p.m. ET, can be found at TysonOnTriller.com.
