Examples of exhibition in a Sentence

  1. Roy Jones:

    Mike Tyson said Thursday in an online press conference. Im coming to fight, and I hope hes coming to fight, and thats all you need to know. Promoters of the pay-per-view spectacle announced that Los Angeles Staples Center will be the site of the 54-year-old Tysons return to boxing on Nov. 28 for an eight-round main event against the 51-year-old Jones. Tysons last official bout was in June 2005, and the former undisputed heavyweight champion hasnt held a title since 1996. Roy Jones fought steadily through Roy Jones 40s, long after Roy Jones super middleweight and light heavyweight title reigns had ended, with his most recent bout in February 2018. Roy Jones also laughs at the idea that any time spent inside a boxing ring with Mike Tyson could ever be a mere exhibition, even though California commission officials have made it clear that Mike Tyson and Roy Jones shouldnt be attempting to seriously hurt each other during a fight with two-minute rounds. Officials say they plan to stop the bout if either fighter is cut or significantly injured. Who goes in the ring with the great, legendary Mike Tyson and thinks its an exhibition ? twelve-ounce gloves ? No headgear ? Really ? This is an exhibition ? Come on, bruh. Be real. In short, Mike Tyson and Roy Jones said everything one might expect from two cagey veterans of the fight game to promote real sporting interest in this endeavor, which came to life after the online world saw footage of Mike Tyson looking impressive while sparring earlier this year. Roy Jones eagerly accepted the opportunity for Mike Tyson highest-profile fight in a decade. Mike Tyson and Roy Jones believe theyll be able to put on a show worthy of their legends. Theyre also eager to be the latest in the growing line of athletes competing at elite levels into their 40s and beyond with improvements in sports science, nutrition and training. When I came along, at 32 years old, you were considered an old guy.

  2. Mark Evans:

    Many artists have painted what I think you can call citational art, that uses famous past images as a starting point, we see this in the first rooms of the exhibition, where artists from far afield as Japan and Brazil use Botticelli's imagery to tell stories very much of their own.

  3. Manny Pacquiao:

    I won't do that. If I'm Floyd I wouldn't do that, exhibition match where you just knock him out. That's not good for the fans.

  4. Ehsan Sehgal:

    The helping that stays free from its exhibition, and a show, qualifies the truth and reality as its purity; otherwise, it only alters a badge.

  5. Andrew Bolton:

    Films are frequently the first events in which Western designers encountered Chinese imagery, the exhibition explores the impact of movies in shaping their fantasies.
