Tyson 'keen on Washington date'


Published: March 10, 2005

Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson could make his latest comeback on 25 June in Washington.

His manager Shelly Finkel told the Washington Post newspaper that no date or venue had been decided.

However the newspaper reported that Washington’s main arena is free on the last Saturday in June – five days before Tyson’s 39th birthday.

Confirming his return earlier in March, Tyson said: “It’ll be in Washington, probably 20 June.”
Tyson has not fought since Britain’s Danny Williams stopped him after four rounds last July.
