Boston Boxing Promotions Offers Mike Tyson
$1.1 Million To Rematch Peter McNeeley
Boston Boxing Promotions has announced an offer of $1.1
Million to Mike Tyson to rematch Medfield, Massachusetts
native "Hurricane" Peter McNeeley (47-7, 36 KO's) in a fight
a quarter of a century in the making.
Tyson (50-6, 44 KO's), fought McNeeley coming off a
four-year layoff in 1995 and scored two knockdowns en route
to McNeeley's corner throwing in the towel 89 seconds into
the fight. McNeeley insists this time things will be
“Mike Tyson, do you want me to try to wrap you in a cocoon
of horror again?” asked McNeeley when reached for comment.
Their initial meeting generated over 500,000 buys on PPV and
a sold out crowd at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Boston Boxing
Promotions would be looking to stage this fight at the
Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New
Hampshire if it were to come off.
Boston Boxing Promotions President Peter Czymbor feels that
this is the real fight boxing fans crave.
"Some have asked if this is a publicity stunt,” noted
Czymbor. “And to that I choose to dodge the question."
"This will be an event like no other when it comes off,"
Czymbor continued. “We are offering undercard slots to the
entire cast of Tiger King, the girl who got hit in the head
with a basketball she threw behind her at a hoop while
dancing on TikTok, and Doja Cat because I can't get that
‘Say So’ song out of my head."
If Tyson agrees, a percentage of the gate will be donated to
a profusion of local charities to be named at a later date.
No tigers were harmed in the writing of this press release.
