Mike Tyson News: Tyson chased for fight in Australia

Posted on Saturday, November 06, 2004 @ 05:39:45 UTC by tysonian
Former heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson is being targeted for a fight in Australia, it was reported today.

Former multi-world champion Jeff Fenech, now a boxing trainer and promoter, said he would travel to the United States next week to try and lure the 38-year-old Tyson to Australia and a fight with New Zealand-born Kali Meehan.

"I think it would be a great venue for him," Fenech told Channel Nine today. "I think Australians would flock to see a Tyson fight."

Tyson has arthroscopic surgery last August to repair the knee injury he suffered in the first round of his loss to Danny Williams in Kentucky in late July.

Fenech said Tyson was keen to visit Australia 18 months ago but he ran into problems with authorities.

"He wanted to bring a couple of friends who had criminal records so it made it difficult," former triple world champion Fenech said.

Meehan, who lives in Australia, is training for a November 13 heavyweight fight with former WBC and International Boxing Federation world champion Hasim Rahman in New York.
