POST TYSON-MCNEELEY: ATTENTION TURNS TO NOVEMBER 4 DUEL
Published August 21, 1995
While Don King had said that Buster Mathis would be Mike Tyson's second post-comeback opponent, Saturday night's 83-second mismatch may cause Tyson's camp to move to get a stronger match- up, especially with Holyfield-Bowe scheduled for the same night - - November 4. Mentioned: WBA Champ Bruce Seldon. SET's Mac Lipscomb says discussions are "continuing" with TVKO (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 8/21). In L.A., Allan Malamud reports that George Foreman was told that Tyson is trying to convince Don King to stage a rematch of former heavyweight champs. Foreman has told his promoter, Bob Arum, to negotiate (L.A. TIMES, 8/21). In Boston, Ron Borges writes of the Nov. 4 dispute: "They're closer to a settlement in Bosnia" (BOSTON GLOBE, 8/20). In Washington, Michael Wilbon writes, "Whatever happens, the snap, crackle and pop appear to be back in the heavyweight division, and Tyson's the reason" (WASHINGTON POST, 8/21).
