Iron Mike Shocks the World Again

Posted By on Tue, Oct 17, 2006 at 11:10 AM

Fight analysts say Tyson may be looking past this week's foe.
Just when you thought it was safe to ignore Mike Tyson, the heavyweight buffoon has administered another smackdown to good taste. This time the follies were served up with garlic bread -- at a press conference at J-Bella's restaurant in Strongsville, where all your top fighters stage their media events. The appearance was designed to hype Tyson's Friday bout in Youngstown, where he will take on a Hormel smoked ham.
Meanwhile, new challengers are lining up for a crack at Iron Mike.
And what's next for Scrapiron Mike? Genetics research? Dining on small children? How about pummeling ladies. Yep, Tyson revealed his plans to find a female opponent, quite possibly pro Ann Wolfe (21-1, 15 KOs). "I'm very serious," Tyson told the modest gathering, made up of Debbie his waitress and Ron the busboy. "She's such a prominent, dominant woman in the boxing field." Tyson later added he would also entertain fight offers from prominent women in the ballet field. -- Erich Burnett
