Rapper claimed a knockout could be 'shaken off', and that Tyson Jones was like 'uncles fighting at BBQ'

Always the showman, the once infamous hood rapper has become somewhat of a caricature of himself in the last decade, focussing more on commercial hits with the likes of Katy Perry, but maybe the nostalgia of Mike Tyson and Roy Jones being in front of him brought out a bot of the old, classic Snoop.

The rapper referred to Nate Robinson as 'from the hood' and that he could 'shake off' a knockout that saw the basketballer faceplant the canvas.

He then referred to the main event as "two uncles fighting at a barbeque, as Mike Tyson and Roy Jones slugged out the main event.
