Tyson Quotes

"He sees a guy begging in the street and he gives him a hundred dollars. I'll say, 'Man, you know the guy's just gonna spend it on crack!' But he says, 'I leave it to Allah to judge him.'"

Mike Tyson News: Tyson gets another new opponent; Laila Ali joins card

Posted on Monday, June 21, 2004 @ 08:07:56 UTC by tysonian

Mike Tyson has a big new opponent and a big-name undercard star for his planned fight July 30 at Freedom Hall.

British heavyweight champion Danny Williams replaces Kevin McBride as Tyson's opponent. And Laila Ali, the daughter of three-time heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, has agreed to fight on the undercard, local promoter Chris Webb said.

"Williams ... is a freakin' puncher," said Webb, president of Straight-Out Promotions.

"This guy here could give Mike problems. This is a fight."

Williams, a 30-year-old native of London, has a 31-3 record with 26 knockouts. In his most recent fight last month, the 6-foot-3 Williams weighed 2641/2 pounds. He has lost to Michael Sprott, Sinan Samil Sam and Julius Francis.

Ali, 26, began boxing five years ago. She has a 16-0 record with 13 knockouts. No opponent for July 30 has been named.

Tyson's appearance here has been in the works nearly a year and isn't finalized. Webb said he expects an announcement this week finalizing the Tyson fight, which would be on Showtime pay-per-view.
