is back ... sort of. The "Mike Tyson World Tour" is officially underway but - after a decidedly lackluster kick-off - it's unclear if there will be much demand for additional stops. In what amounted to little more than a glorified sparring session, Tyson and Corey "T-Rex" Sanders huffed-and-puffed their way through four rounds in front of about 4,000 fans in a 6,000-seat minor league hockey arena in Youngstown, Ohio. Both men wore t-shirts and 16-ounce gloves. Sanders wore headgear, while Tyson - sporting his trademark black shoes and black trunks - elected not to use headgear.
As expected, Tyson was the aggressor throughout. Sanders, who provided little opposition, was dropped early in round one and took some big shots in both the third and fourth rounds. As an exhibition bout, there was no decision. The "fight" was Tyson's first since "retiring" after being stopped in six rounds by Kevin McBride in June 2005.
