Tyson Quotes

"There are very few new things in this world, very few. Thats why people that are young, if theyre smart, try to profit from the experience of an older guy so they wont have to go through all the pain and suffering. But a certain amount of pain and suffer is good, because it makes a person think theyve learned."

~ Cus D'Amato

Mike Tyson has vowed to relaunch his career despite his humiliating defeat by Britain's Danny Williams last summer.

Former world heavyweight champion Tyson, 38, says he will fight on June 20 in Washington against an opponent yet to be announced in what would be his first bout since being knocked out by Williams in the fourth round in Louisville.

The Williams debacle has not deterred the New Yorker, though, as he announced his intentions during a television appearance in Italy.

"I'm getting back into a ring. It will be in Washington, probably June 20," Tyson said.

Australia's acting immigration minister Peter McGauran this week dashed Tyson's hopes of rebuilding his career Down Under by telling a radio station the fighter's past misdemeanours would make entry into the country unlikely.

As well as a 1992 rape conviction, Tyson's notoriety increased further in 1997 when he bit a chunk out of Evander Holyfield's ear during a world title fight.

"We look at the nature and the seriousness of anybody's criminal conduct, we look at the protection of the Australian community and also what are community standards," said McGauran.

"So even though he might have a cheer squad in Australia, that might be more than counter-balanced by the expectations of the Australian community that he be refused a visa."
