Saturday’s fight with Kevin McBride is the first step for Mike Tyson’s in a three-step plan that culminates in a title shot against heavyweight champion Vitali Klistschko. If things go according to plan, Tyson will be victorious Saturday, then return in November, then face Klitschko next year in Germany. Iron Mike recently inked a three-fight pact with Washington DC businessman Darryl Stuckey, who had formed “The Stuckey Group” which includes some unnamed investors. Tyson will earn $5 million to face McBride. “The Clones Colossus” will pocket $150,000. The card is being promoted by Raging Promotions, in association with The Stuckey Group and PMG, Inc. The SHOWTIME PPV telecast begins at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
