Tyson World Tour Undercard!

"Iron" Mike ready to kick-off "Mike Tyson's World Tour" show in Youngstown Chevrolet Centre in Ohio, October 20 on PPV

October 16, 2006

 

Living legend "Iron" Mike Tyson has been training in Phoenix and Las Vegas to prepare for Friday night's official kick-off of "Mike Tyson's World Tour" pay-per-view event at the Chevrolet Centre in Youngstown, Ohio.

Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs), former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, boxes veteran Corey "T-Rex" Sanders (23-10, 15 KOs), who holds a knocked out victory against reigning World Boxing Council heavyweight title-holder Oleg Maskaev, in a four-round exhibition headlining the pay-per-view event.

The first leg of "Mike Tyson's World Tour" in Youngstown, presented by Sterling Promotions, will be broadcast live in North America on cable and satellite pay-per-view beginning at 10:30 PM/ET, 7:30 PM/PT. The event is being produced and distributed for Pay Per View by Queensbury Media and Integrated Sports and will be available in more than 50-million homes in North America via iN Demand, TVN, DirecTV & Dish Network in the USA, Viewer's Choice & Bell ExpressVu in Canada. The suggested retail price for the PPV telecast is only $29.95.

"Mike's feeling great," three-time world champion and Tyson's trainer Jeff Fenech said. "He's really looking forward to it. Everything is good. I'm always honored to be part of Team Tyson. I'm happy for any opportunity to work with the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time. We're all looking forward to it."

"I'm excited and I can't wait for the first show in Youngstown," Sanders remarked. "I've been boxing with Mike for a while and I know he's looking forward to it. It's going to be entertaining. I guarantee it."

Former world light heavyweight champion Lou Del Valle faces local favorite Zack Page (11-8- 1, 4 KOs), of Warren (OH), in the 10-round co-feature. Del Valle captured the vacant WBA light heavyweight title in 1997, stopping Eddy Smulders in the eighth round of their fight in Germany, while Page is coming off of an eight-round draw (Sept. 29) against former NABO champion Jermell Barnes. Del Valle has also been in with world champions such as Roy Jones, Jr. and Virgil Hill.

Former West African welterweight title-holder "Sugar" Ray Narh (18-1, 15 KOs), now fighting out of Pittsburgh, is in a 10 round Special Junior Welterweight Attraction against an opponent to be determined.

Cincinnati super middleweight Stephan "The Millenium Hawk" Pryor (10-2, 7 KOs), son of the great Aaron Pryor, takes on unbeaten Tyron "T.T." Watson (3-0, 1 KO), of Pittsburgh, in a six-round bout.

Also on the undercard is Cleveland middleweight Juan McPherson (3-0, 2 KOs), 2003 Pan-Am Games silver medallist, against Johnny Hayes (5-2-1, 3 KOs); Warren middleweight Nate Adams (2-0, 2 KOs) versus Akron's Delbert Summerville (1-1); lightweight Juan Nazario (1-0, 1 KO) meets Rasheen Daniels.
