Tyson-Lewis news conference disrupted by
brawl NEW YORK (AP) -- (JAN 22, 2002)
Mike Tyson's latest outburst angered Lennox Lewis and landed the president
of the World Boxing Commission in the hospital briefly with a sore head.
Tyson also was left with some explaining to do if he ever hopes to get Lewis
into the ring for real. Tyson himself was cut on his forehead after he came
at Lewis and threw a punch that triggered a melee and ended up canceling a
news conference Tuesday to promote their heavyweight championship fight
April 6. The
fight could be in trouble as well, if Tyson can't convince Nevada boxing
authorities next week that all he was trying to do was promote the fight
when he went after Lewis.
