Mike Tyson gets DC boxing license: and will fight Lennox Lewis at DC's MCI Center on June 8. Is anyone surprised?

I'm surprised that he's not fighting in Vegas, if that's what you mean. But the whole world wants to see this fight, whether we want to admit it or not.

Crackhead mayor. Psycho boxer. Another fine moment in the history of our nation's capital. Sigh.

Succa, I really wanted to disagree with you, but as I typed the words I realized that you are right, I want to see him fight. Actually, it's not so much that I want to watch the fight, because I won't pay for it on principle, but I am curious about how he'll fight. I firmly believe that Tyson is a washed up loser and has been lingering because of the brilliance of his earlier years, but something still drives me to wonder. Now here's the question: What would it take for DCs Commission to deny someone a license?

Oh, I know why I can't find a link- it was on PTI.
