KINGS, DONALDS AND TYSONS IN THE NEWS
Published November 30, 1995
MIKE TYSON will fight BUSTER MATHIS JR. at the CoreStates Spectrum in Philadelphia on December 16. The fight, originally scheduled for November 4 in Las Vegas, was postponed due to Tyson's broken thumb. The fight was since rumored to be headed for Atlantic City, but the NJ State Athletic Control Board would not allow it because of the current indictments against Tyson promoter DON KING. The Commission also disallowed DONALD TRUMP to stage the fight with King "more or less on the sideline" (Bernard Fernandez, PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 11/30). Fox Sports said reports the network will carry the fight on free TV are "premature." But a source told CNN that "Fox will almost certainly carry the fight" ("Sports Tonight," CNN, 11/29).
