Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson could face a rematch with South Africa's Francois Botha in September, according to Botha's manager Sterling McPherson.
Botha and Tyson fought back in 1999
The manager hopes to set up the fight for 13 September in Johannesburg to give Botha a chance to avenge his fifth-round defeat against Tyson in January 1999.
"The date is a little strange because Oscar De La Hoya and Shane Mosley will fight the same night in Las Vegas but I can say I've heard from Jay Larkin at Showtime TV and Tyson's manager Shelly Finkel," said McPherson.
"I was on a conference call with Sports Network TV and each of the people involved has expressed serious interest.
"Botha called me from South Africa and told me they were moving on securing a stadium there.
"I know Tyson called his trainers and told them to get ready. I'll do this fight if it's for real."
Meanwhile, a bodyguard for boxing promoter Don King has sued Tyson, accusing the 37-year-old of punching him twice and breaking a bone in his face.
Isadore Bolton has sued Tyson for compensatory damages of approximately $15,000 said Bolton's attorney Bob Montgomery.
