VERONA, N.Y. - Mike Tyson rose through the amateur boxing ranks in Upstate New York and now he has returned to make his debut as a promoter Friday at the Turning Stone Resort Casino.
Tyson participated in the Empire State Games and spent time in Syracuse, Rome, the Catskills, Lake George, and Lake Placid on his way to becoming a heavyweight champion, and two years ago he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota.
His first event as a promoter features two title bouts in the IBF Featherweight and WBA Super Featherweight divisions which will be showcased on the ESPN series "Friday Night Fights" airing on ESPN2. The undercard begins at 7 p.m. and the ESPN2 telecast starts at 9. Click here for more information.
