Mike Tyson News: Arum And King Both Want Tyson

Posted on Wednesday, July 21, 2004 @ 08:55:59 UTC by tysonian
Mike Tyson is the most wanted man on the planet. Every fighter in the heavyweight division wants to fight him, every promoter wants to have him. It is hard to imagine that this very same fighter has over 38 million dollars in debt.

Don King stated to BoxingScene that he would love to promote Mike Tyson and has three heavyweight champions to match him with in big money bouts.

Tyson has said that he would not be beyond working with Don King.

Now it appears that Bob Arum, owner of Top Rank, wants to promote Tyson as well. Arum has stated to the press that he has heavy interest to promote Tyson but wouldnt not make a deal with Tyson until after his comeback fight with Danny Williams on July 30.

"If we had the opportunity, we'd be happy to promote Tyson. I'd certainly be interested. He might not be the fighter he was several years ago, but I think he could win the title again." said Arum

The interest is so strong that Top Rank matchmaker Bruce Trampler has already met with Tyson and Freddie Roach several times during the last couple of weeks.

While there is no indication as to which promoter Tyson will sign with, he is looking to get hooked up with a big promoter before his second comeback fight, rumored to be against Vassily Jirov.
