Mike Tyson Signs With K-1 - Again!


Showtime championship boxing


K-1 has yet again inked the former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson to a new deal on

April 11th that would have "Iron" Mike back in the ring as quickly as July of this year (possibly in New York

or Los Angeles).  Tyson had previously signed a contract with K-1 that gave K-1 the right to handle a

publicity tour and commercial endorsements in Japan in August of 2003.


In a nut shell, K-1 would have liked to have Tyson fight in Japan but was having difficulty in securing Tyson a

visa which has led to this new contract signing. There is a great article on the K-1 website written by Monty

DiPietro that covers the entire situation very well.
