According to several Russian media outlets, former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is said to be working the corner of unbeaten Sultan Ibragimov, when he challenges WBO heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs on June 2 at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Tyson, who is scheduled to go on trial for drug charges on August 20, was recently given permission by a judge to travel outside of his home state of Arizona.

There was no indication by any of the Russian sources as to where the information came from, and may end up being nothing more than pre-fight hype for the pay-per-view. It would be an interesting twist if it happens since Tyson and Briggs are from the same neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Comments? Thoughts?

I would too. It just seems like to me that if this was going to happen Mike would have been at least somewhat involved in the Ibragimov camp. He wouldn't just pop in out of nowhere. But then again we didn't expect him start eating people either.

come on now, tyson knows more about boxing than most boxing historians. Tyson grew up learning from damato and rooney and watched film after film of his managers collection, He knows his **** probabley better than any other boxer today. But as for being in ibrag corner, doubt it, tyson and briggs grew up in the same neighborhood and they are pretty good friends.

Yea, but nothing Tyson does follows common logic anyways. This would make perfect "Tyson Sense" to me.

Mike Tyson has applied to work the corner of heavyweight Sultan Ibragimov during his WBO title bout against Shannon Briggs on Saturday night in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Tyson sent an incomplete application to the New Jersey Athletic Control Board - the government agency that governs boxing in the state - on Tuesday and will need to answer two more questions before he is considered for a license as a second in the undefeated Russian's corner.

The former heavyweight champion has been an unofficial adviser to Ibragimov in the past and attended Ibragimov's December 15, 2005 knockout of Lance Whitaker.

The application left blank which boxer Tyson was applying to assist, and whether Tyson knew of any medical conditions affecting the fighter.

Nicholas Lembo, counsel for the NJACB, said there was still time for Tyson to be considered for the license if he quickly refiles a complete application.

"We have not considered any action on it because it is incomplete," Lembo said on Wednesday. "It was simply returned for completion. Once it is submitted in complete form, there will be a consideration of the application for a license."

Tyson needs permission by a judge to travel outside Arizona and California while his **** charges are pending.
From boxing scene:p What happens if Ibragimov doesnt listen to his instructions though:laugh:

from fightnews.

Mike Tyson will not be working in Sultan Ibragimov's corner on Saturday. Iron Mike's request to leave the state of Arizona to help Sulatn in Atlantic City was denied by authorities. Tyson is not allowed to leave Arizona and California without permission due to a pending trial.
