AFTER $30 MILLION FOR BRUNO FIGHT, TYSON CLAIMS UNFAIRNESS

     In a Friday conference call with boxing writes, MIKE TYSON
said he is not happy with his income level from his recent
fights.  For the three fights Tyson has been paid at least $65M.
Tyson received a record $30M purse for his TKO of Frank Bruno.
Tyson:  "I'm just saying, 'Give me more money.  I'm entitled to
it.'"  Tyson did not say whether promoter DON KING, co-managers
JOHN HORNE or RORY HOLLOWAY, or business partners Showtime and
the MGM Grand were the source of his unhappiness (Greg Logan,
NEWSDAY, 3/23).
