Mike Tyson Offered $1.1 Million For Peter McNeeley Rematch

The offers continue to come down for former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

Boston Boxing Promotions has announced an offer of $1.1 Million to Tyson to rematch Medfield, Massachusetts native "Hurricane" Peter McNeeley (47-7, 36 KO's).

Tyson (50-6, 44 KO's), fought McNeeley coming off a four-year layoff in 1995 and scored two knockdowns en route to McNeeley's corner throwing in the towel 89 seconds into the fight. McNeeley insists this time things will be different.

“Mike Tyson, do you want me to try to wrap you in a cocoon of horror again?” asked McNeeley when reached for comment.

Their initial meeting generated over 500,000 buys on PPV and a sold out crowd at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Boston Boxing Promotions would be looking to stage this fight at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire if it were to come off.

Tyson, 53-years-old and inactive since 2005, is planning to return to the ring for a few exhibition fights to raise money for charity.

It should be noted that Tyson turned down $20 million from Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship and also rejected an offer of $3 million from Australia to fight Sonny Bill Williams or Paul Gallen.

Boston Boxing Promotions President Peter Czymbor denied that his company threw out the offer to gain media attention.

"Some have asked if this is a publicity stunt,” noted Czymbor. “And to that I choose to dodge the question."

"This will be an event like no other when it comes off," Czymbor continued. “We are offering undercard slots to the entire cast of Tiger King, the girl who got hit in the head with a basketball she threw behind her at a hoop while dancing on TikTok, and Doja Cat because I can't get that ‘Say So’ song out of my head."

If Tyson agrees, a percentage of the gate will be donated to a profusion of local charities to be named at a later date.

[QUOTE=Tatabanya;20585077]THIS I could not see coming. What's next, Adonis Stevenson vs Gerald McClellan?[/QUOTE] I’d watch that. 2 of the biggest wankers in boxing becoming even more brain dead. I think Stevenson would win in round 2 though
