Mike Tyson To Sign Contract To Fight Kimbo Slice!!
 
May 15, 2008. The fight world is about to change. MediaTakeOut.com just EXCLUSIVELY learned that former heavyweight boxing champ has tentatively agreed to fight internet streetfighter Kimbo Slice under ProElite’s live fight division, EliteXC.

According to an insider at the company, Mike and Kimbo are set to fight "late this year or early next." But first things first, Kimbo has to win his fight next Saturday night against James "Colossus" Thompson. A fight that or insider claims is "going to be tough."

I don't think it will be a blockbuster flight because Tyson is way past his prime and Kimbo is unproven, but it still will be interesting to watch.

When I look around, I see other forums saying that it was not true.

We need a source for this. Until then, thread closed.
