Tyson Quotes

"I had Mike sparring 10 rounds everyday... 5 days a week! It was an all out war EVERYDAY. There was none of that one day on and one day off crap. To be a great fighter... you have to spar. You gotta spar everyday, day in and day out, week after week. With Mike, I would spar him up until two or three days before a fight."

~ Kevin Rooney

Mike Tyson is expected to attend a noon news conference today at the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, where the former world champion will announce his intentions to fight Ireland's Kevin McBride on June 11 at MCI Center, his adviser, Shelly Finkel, said last night.

The Sun reported last month that McBride (32-4-1, 27 knockouts) and Germany's Andreas Sidon (26-5, 20 KOs) were among Tyson's prospective rivals for a bout on Showtime pay per view. Tyson (50-5, 44 knockouts) has, in fact, chosen to meet McBride

The 6ft 6in "Clones Colossus" boasts a professional record of 32 victories, four losses and a draw, winning his last seven fights by knockout.

Both Tyson, who will turn 39 on June 30, and McBride, 31, have signed contracts to fight. Finkel said Tyson "went before the [Washington, D.C. Athletic Commision yesterday] and he's signed the contract to fight."

Tyson was approved and licensed last night by the commission, said a source close to the event.

Marty Wynn of Raging Promotions is expected to promote the fight.
