Mike Tyson's July 30 opponent could well be changed from Irishman Kevin McBride to former British & Commonwealth Champion Danny Williams. The buzz is Showtime were unhappy with the original opponent and a deal with the Englishman

Although not a major name in the US, the 6ft 2inch, 250lbs Williams would be a much better opponent for the former two-time world heavyweight champion than the Irish journeyman.

As a selling point, Williams holds a one round blast-out win over Kali Meehan, who is expected to challenge WBO heavyweight champion Lawmon Brewster shortly. But it remains to be seen whether this fight will actually happen. After all, since his last fight in February 2003 Tyson has been linked with ever fighter - including kickboxers and sumo wrestlers! - under the sun.

Yeah i read this earlier. I never rated Williams and i think even a half fit and ring rusty Tyson would beat him.

Well i guess Williams is not a easy opponent as such as he has got a quite good record. But in my opinion he is not that good a fighter.

He'll probably get his a$$ KTFO like almost every no name Tyson has faced in the past.

Danny Williams, the former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion, is being lined up for Mike Tyson's comeback fight in Louisville, Kentucky, on July 30 after the original opponent, Kevin McBride of Ireland, pulled out in a dispute over money.

Tyson, 37, has had only one contest since losing to Lennox Lewis in June 2002, knocking out a fellow American, Clifford Etienne, in 49 seconds in February 2003. But Tyson has spent most of the estimated $300m he made from boxing and was declared bankrupt last year.

American boxing's coach of the year, Freddie Roach, has been working with the former champion in Phoenix, Arizona, and said he expects Tyson to be close to his optimum fighting weight of around 15st 10lb for the clash.

Williams, 31, has never fulfilled his potential and suffered a major setback last year when he lost a European title challenge against Turkey's Sinan Samil Sam and then surrendered his British and Commonwealth titles to Michael Sprott in January. Williams is believed to have been offered the biggest pay-day of his career.

Hollyfield showed the world how to fight Tyson, GO at him. Backing away plays into his game. Tyson's done, stick a fork in him. BTW, I've met a man that fought Tyson. A Canadian champ from 20 years ago. Conrad Nelson. Nice guy. Hands like Buicks. Went down in the 2nd, he backed away.
