Tyson in Ibragimov's Corner?

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.
Man that was funnier. Imagine it in Tyson's voice though. "Tell him you want to eat his children."
"How tall are you private?" "Uhmmm 6 foot sir." "Really? I didn't know that stacked sh*t that high!"

HAHAHA. One of my all time favorite movies.
Yea, but nothing Tyson does follows common logic anyways. This would make perfect "Tyson Sense" to me.
