Mike Tyson to Box in Alpine Theater


Promoter Don King announced this morning that Mike Tyson will fight 8th ranked heavyweight Wladimir Klitschko in Brooklyn's historic Alpine Theater.

The fight will be held on July 4. There will also be an undercard with bouts between Eric "Butterbean" Esch of Jasper, Alabama vs Frank McGrane of parts unknown and a six rounder between female boxers Christy Martin and Terri Blair.

Tyson will have his hands full against the Ukrainian heavyweight. This may be his last chance to reclaim his status as a top contender.

Butterbean may have his hands full this time !
The matches will be seen on pay-per-view tv in the US. The Alpine will be closed for two months as the multiplex walls are taken down for this major sporting event. The Alpine is being discussed as the site of future boxing and professional wrestling events.

The Tyson-Klitschko fight is being co-sponsored by the Ring magazine and the Home Reporter and Sunset News newspaper.

They'd better let the real people from Bay Ridge get a shot at these tickets. WFAN last night said that it has already been sold out.

I don't want this to be just the Manhattan people getting in, for Christs sake.
