Mike Tyson said, “I am thrilled, bringing my first fight, as Iron Mike Productions, to the Turning Stone Resort Casino for ESPN.  Upstate New York is very special to me and brings back nostalgic memories when I was a determined amateur on the rise.  I want to be there and guide my fighters as they take these same stepping stones in their quest for greatness.  We plan to put on an exciting and entertaining fight on August 23rd."

Tyson will participate in all fight week activities at Turning Stone.

The fights will be televised live on ESPN.
