Tyson Quotes

"I think he has the potential to be the greatest of all, because he has two things going for him: terrific hand speed and the power, combined. He can lose 11 2/3 rounds of a fight and then take you out with one shot"

~ Eddie Futch about Tyson

Mike Tyson News: Circulating rumour: Tyson headed for 4-rounders?

Mike Tyson trainer Jeff Fenech is reportedly headed to Phoenix today for negotiations involving a four-round multi-million-dollar tournament against the likes of Tyson, Evander Holyfield and Riddick Bowe. "Mike does not want to go out of boxing as a loser against Kevin McBride," Fenech said told Aussie boxing writer Grantlee Kieza.

"He is one of the greatest heavyweight champions of all time and is still explosive for four rounds. He doesn't want to compete in ten-round fights because after 20 years as a big-name fighter it is hard to keep backing up in the gym."

"But physically he remains rock solid and very strong and believes he can still thrill fans with the style that made him the youngest ever heavyweight champ in 1986."

Fenech says there has already been interest in the tournament from promoters in Las Vegas and Dubai.

Tysons last fight drew a crowd of 15,472 to Washington's MCI Centre and had ppv buys of reportly 250,000 - proof that Tyson remains one of the biggest names in the sport.

Update: After confirmation this report indeed proved to be a false rumour.
