Mike Tyson News: Shelly Finkel speaks about McBride-Tyson speculations

Posted on Wednesday, March 10, 2004 @ 10:07:49 UTC by tysonian

Mike Tyson's promoter has told the Belfast Telegraph that Kevin McBride is in the frame for a clash with the former undisputed world heavyweight champion.

Clones man McBride, who is based in Boston, has been rumoured for some time to be Tyson's comeback opponent, with his promoter Richie Campiello remaining quietly confident.

His belief that McBride could sensationally land the biggest fight of his life is clearly not misplaced, as Tyson's promoter Shelly Finkel admitted that it was "a possibility".

In relation to Tyson's return to the ring, he added: "I would hope to have a deal done within the next two weeks."

Finkel would not be drawn much further on details but at the moment the only name being mentioned for the self-proclaimed 'Baddest Man on the Planet' is McBride.

One thing Finkel did insist on was that Tyson's return "will be in the States", and not Mexico or even Ireland.

McBride has been carving out a decent career for himself in the States, after an up and down time in Britain.
