Site for bout yet to be determined

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- The Mike Tyson-Lou Savarese fight will be held June 24, more than a month later than originally scheduled.

A site for the bout is still to be determined, Tyson spokesman Peter Seligman said Wednesday.

Tyson was initially to have fought Savarese on May 20 in Milan, Italy.

A source close to the negotiations, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the fight could still be held in Milan. Glasgow, Scotland, is also being considered.

No official reason was given for the May 20 postponement, but Tyson reportedly needed more time to prepare.

The former heavyweight champion last fought Jan. 29 when he stopped Julius Francis in the second round at Manchester, England.
