Mike Tyson News: More Tyson K-1 speculations, K-1 Bout To Be In The USA

Posted on Wednesday, April 21, 2004 @ 15:18:03 UTC by tysonian
Mike Tyson's first bout with the K-1 shoot fighting promotion in Japan, will be held in the United States.

The bout is slated to take place on or around July 31st of this year

While the K-1 promotion is huge in Japan, K-1 had to settle for the United States to run the Tyson card.

The word coming from K-1 is that their inability to secure a visa for Mike Tyson, led to the decision of moving the card from Japan to the United States. Mike's opponent is rumored to be Bob Sapp, but some shoot insiders doubt they will match up Mike with Sapp just yet.

While Sapp has a questionable chin, he also packs a huge power shot. The Sapp-Tyson bout will likely be Tyson's last bout in K-1.

The general feeling is that K-1 will put in a very safe opponent for Tyson's initial match, then exercise the option in the contract which calls for two more Tyson bouts and match Tyson with Sapp in the final match of the contract
