18.01.06- By Scoop Malinowski: Sources from American TV show ESPN Hollywood report that Mike Tyson told them in Las Vegas this past weekend that the 39-year-old former heavyweight champion is interested in fighting again. And specifically mentioned Jermain Taylor as a potential future opponent..
Of course, when it comes to Mike Tyson, we read and hear many ludicrous rumors and reports. But this one may indeed be credible. After all, Taylor and his handlers are very ambitious and a unique middleweight vs. heavyweight spectacle such as Tyson vs. Taylor would be intriguing.
The middleweight vs. heavyweight precedent has already been set. There is at least one example in boxing history where a middleweight champ has challenged a heavyweight - Stanley Ketchel was stopped in nine by reigning heavyweight champ Jack Johnson in 1909.
Could Tyson vs. Taylor actually be in the works? With Mike Tyson, as we know, pretty much anything is possible.
