‘Iron Mike’ Tyson to Fight Etienne in February with Tonya Harding on undercard

Mike Tyson will return to the ring for the first time since losing to heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis June 8 when he fights Clifford Etienne in Memphis, Tennessee on February 22 at the Pyramid. Well recognized figure skater Tonya Harding will also be making her pro boxing debut the same night as the undercard.

In a recent television report, Tyson said, ”I’m tired of being stupid. . . . I want to do more fighting than talking. The last couple of years, I’ve done more talking than fighting. I haven’t been as successful as I should have been.” Looking back on that eighth-round knockout, Tyson (49-4, 43 KOs) also said, ”I felt purified after that fight. It’s like he whipped my (butt) and baptized me at the same time.”
