    Hope this isn't a D_B...

    STRONGSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Mike Tyson said fans should not expect much of a fight when he steps back into the ring.

    But the 40-year-old former heavyweight boxing champ promised an entertaining show Friday night when he launches the "Mike Tyson's World Tour" in Youngstown.

    At a news conference at an Italian restaurant, Tyson said he would likely go just four rounds and that future stops on the tour might include bouts with women, possibly professional boxer Ann Wolfe.

    Wolfe, from Waco, Texas, is 21-1 with 15 knockouts.

    "She's such a prominent, dominant woman in the boxing field," Tyson said.

    When asked if he was joking about fighting women, Tyson said, "I'm very serious."

    Anyone remember the Bogart boxing flick (a great one, BTW) The Harder They Fall? Iron Mike has morphed into Toro Moreno.

    For a minute I thought this thread was about Mike Keenan.

    There are just so many things in that short article that are simultaneously disturbing and hilarious.

    Wow, wonder if Michael Steele's opponent gave Tyson $50 to wear that T-shirt? That's the only thing that would make sense.
    I'm amazed that Tyson is still alive.

    Tyson has already shown a propensity for fighting under-sized opponents. Remember this guy?

    Fighting women was just the next sorry step.
