Rumor has it that a Kimbo vs. Tyson bout is a possibility. Kimbo first has to get through James “The Colossus” Thompson on May 31st. I last pics I saw of Tyson, he was about 300 lbs. That much weight on a 5′ 10″ frame isn’t a good thing for the former champ.
Obviously the fight would be a publicity stunt and wouldn’t prove anything as far as Kimbo’s legitimacy, but I’m sure Tyson could use the money.
I’ve been a Tyson fan since the beginning and think he was one of the top 5 heavyweights of all time, but Kimbo is in his prime right now (even though he is in his mid-30’s) and Tyson is far from his fighting weight.
It wouldn’t make it out of the first round, Kimbo by KO.
