In a BoxingScene exclusive, BoxingScene catches up with Mike Tyson to get a few moments of his time in order to get the lowdown on when Iron Mike will be back.
BoxingScene: What went wrong in your fight with Danny Williams? Was it the knee? Training problems? Rust?
Tyson: I had a good camp, I had good sparring partners….I was physically and mentally prepared for the fight. I got a bit anxious in the first round (when he hurt Williams) and hurt my knee. After that….I couldnt throw my right hand.
While most experts feel that Mike Tyson is done, Tyson and his camp expect him back by the end of the year.
BoxingScene: The word going around is that we can expect you back in a few months.
Tyson: If everything goes well (with rehab of the knee). This is the motivation I have, I’m not done. I’ll be back.
Although most want Mike to face Danny Williams in a rematch, Mike does not disclose as to who his next opponent will be.
BoxingScene: Will it be against Danny Williams or another opponent?
Tyson: I don’t know….maybe Williams, maybe someone else. I’m just focused on coming back.
Thank you for giving us a moment of your time and good luck with your recovery.
