He scores two round knockouts over American Michael Grant and Francois Botha before comprehensively outpointing Kiwi David Tua.
A fight with Tyson is discussed, although there appears to be some negotiation to be done.
Apparently unwelcome in Las Vegas, Tyson takes his show to Britain, destroying London’s Julius Francis in two rounds in Manchester.
The promotion, handled by Frank Warren, is a success. But when Tyson returns to the British Isles to fight compatriot Lou Saverese, controversy rears its ugly head. As referee John Coyle tries to stop the fight, with Tyson dominant, the former champion punches the official out of the way and continues to box until he is hauled away by his corner.
He finishes the year with a win over boxing misfit Andrew Golota, who quits after two rounds and walks back to his dressing room.
