Tyson ends feud with King
Former world champion Mike Tyson
Tyson hopes to make another comeback soon
Mike Tyson has received a $14m (7.6m) settlement from Don King but has agreed to drop a $100m (55m) court case against the promoter in return.

Unfortunately for Tyson, the windfall will not solve his cash problems and a new bankruptcy plan envisages him fighting seven times in three years.

"He wants to put the past behind him and believes he can be champion again," said Tyson's manager, Shelly Finkel.

Tyson's first bout for 17 months could be against Briton Danny Williams.

But the 38-year-old American is not the force he once was and has only fought twice in the last three years.

Should he beat Williams, Tyson's next comeback fight could be in the autumn, maybe against light heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver or WBO heavyweight champion Lamon Brewster.

Tyson had ruled out fighting for King again but, with their dispute now at an end, it seems they may work together again.
