No matter what he is doing, it is clear that Snoop Dogg was born to entertain. The rapper not only hit the stage to perform at the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight on Saturday (Nov. 28) but he also joined the commentary box to give his take on the boxing match, and it was legendary.
Fans enjoyed his takes and jokes so much, that they declared him the unofficial winner of the sporting event. Even celebrities took to Twitter to give Snoop his props. Wendell Pierce made sure to quote one of the rapper’s most popular jokes of the night when he said Tyson and Jones looked like two uncles fighting.
“The winner tonight was Snoop Dogg! ‘This looks like my 2 Uncles fighting at the Bar-B-Que,’” the actor tweeted.

If ESPN really wants to solve their Monday Night Football problem, they’ll write Snoop Dogg a blank check to do color commentary— Nico Haeflinger (@NicoFOXIL) November 29, 2020
Some credited Snoop with not only adding humor and laughs to the boxing match but also for making the year 2020 a bit better. “2020 was a shit year but tonight made it a tiiiiiiiiny but better watching #SnoopDogg commentary,” TV producer Prentice Penny tweeted.
The California emcee has plenty of hosting and television experience, and his personality shines through whenever he is called on to share his take on any event. The Tyson-Jones Jr. fight might have ended in a draw, but Snoop went home as the unofficial winner of the night.
