Don King Serious: I Want Mike Tyson To Face Stiverne!

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com ran a story on Tuesday, where Hall of Fame promoter Don King promised to get former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson out of retirement to fight WBC champion Bermane Stiverne. Everyone thought he was kidding. It appears he is not. King wants to give Tyson, 48-years-old and inactive since June 2005, the opportunity to make history by attempting to become the oldest man to win a world heavyweight title. Stiverne has a big fight on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, when he faces mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder in a Showtime televised main event.

If Stiverne wins, Don is going to do everything in his power to keep that belt away from Wladimir. We'll never see an undisputed heavyweight champion if that happens. Deontay must win tonight for the good of boxing.

Winner gets George Foreman.

I think no-one cares what King wants or says...we have learnt to expect this kinda **** from him...i'd be more worried if Mike was actually giving any indications that he'd be up for going along with this freak-show idea...

The big news would be if Tyson does NOT belt King for skroo-ing outta so much dough back in the day. I think Tyson is now smarter than to allow King to make him into a full-fledged freak show.

Perhaps King can get Kali Meehan or Danny Williams instead.
