Mike Tyson's once ferocious talent may have waned and his boxing legitimacy continues to be brought into question.
But the former world heavyweight champion can rest assured that his whole unseemly roadshow will never find itself short of a place to pitch up for the night.
The absence of any sufficiently powerful nationwide boxing regulatory body in America allows the Tyson crew to shunt from state to state until they find one desperate enough to seek association with his tarnished brand of glamour.
Tennessee leapt in eagerly in 2002 to send the Lennox Lewis fight to the muddy banks of the Mississippi in 2002 after the Nevada State Athletic Commission steadfastly refused to end their ban on Tyson and allow potentially the biggest grossing fight in boxing history to take place in what many considered to be its rightful home.
Now the man who once boasted of being the biggest headline-maker of his generation is once more scrabbling about for a place in which to justify his boxing future.
