Mike Tyson News: Tyson Looking For Hawaii Showdown

Posted on Sunday, June 20, 2004 @ 08:02:50 UTC by tysonian
Iron Mike Tyson looks to stay busy in 2004 as he is already working on his next bout. A card is already in the works for September 11, 2004 at the Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. The card would be a combo K-1/boxing event. Possible names for Tyson opponents have been named as either Jerome Le Banner (50-8-1) or Ray Sefo (45-11-1), both men have mainly done K-1 fighting. Hot prospect Brian Viloria has also been thrown around as being on the undercard.

Approval could come next month, pending completion of contracts, exams and agreement on suitable matchups. Commissioner Willes K. Lee, said, "They (promoters) have formally begun the process, but they haven't submitted anything yet."

The card is slated to be shown on a pay-per-view basis, promoters told the commission.

Lee said, "As long as he (Tyson) meets all the requirements just like any other fighter, we would approve it."

Tyson is scheduled to fight Kevin McBride July 31 in either St. Louis or Louisville. There has been some word going around in the press that McBride would not be the opponent for Tyson and Danny Williams would step in to take McBride's place.
