According to Boxko.ru, Iron Mike Tyson might soon be back to Russia – now as a promoter. Iron Mike Productions plan to stage a huge show at the Crocus City Hall on the western outskirts of Moscow in assistance with top Russian promoter Vladimir Hryunov. If negotiations between the Russian and the American parties are successful, the show will take place in late May.
The return of Iron Mike will also showcase some of his newly acquired Caribbean power: 2008 Beijing light welterweight gold medalist Felix Diaz (14-0, 8 KOs) from the Dominican Republic, another undefeated Dominican Lenin Castillo (11-0, 7 KOs) and WBC #4 light heavyweight Umberto Savigne (11-1, 8 KOs) from Cuba.
Several Russian standouts, including Dmitry Chudinov (12-0-2, 8 KOs), his younger brother Fedor (9-0, 7 KOs) and female champion Svetlana Kulakova (9-0, 1 KO), might also take part in the show.
