This weekend Mike Tyson will be a special referee for one of the World Cage Fighting Championship bouts in Manchester, England. This venue has played host to the worlds fighting greats such as Iron? Mike Tyson, Ricky The Hitman? Hatton, Nigel Benn, Chris Eubank, Prince Naseem Hamed and Amir Khan.
WCFC Cage Fighting bouts are so clinical in the way a fighter can be brutally despatched, that only the best fight referees in the business can be employed to arbitrate during the battles. It is for this reason that the Chief Referee for this Gladiatorial extravaganza is the Baddest Man on the Planet, Iron? Mike Tyson!
It takes a Warrior to understand and gain the respect of a Warrior, mere mortals will have their place at WCFC.?in the stands where they are safest.

A VIP Corporate Package will give you the opportunity to meet Mike Tyson.

The event will be at the Manchester Evening News Arena, Manchester, 8pm, March 18th 2006.

Tyson said: I havent had any training for this but if I see an eyeball rolling across the floor, Ill know its time I got involved!

I just hope none of the guys get up to the sort of stuff I used to do.

But you can forget any talk about me getting involved, even though I love cage fighting.

I dont want to fight no one no more. Im past it, old and washed up ancient history as far as all that is concerned.?

Tyson added: People say cage boxing is barbaric but there is a lot of skill, heart, and technique involved.

There is a bit of the psychotic beast in all of us. Everyone thinks about putting the knee into someones face.?
