Tyson Fight May Be Quick

Sat., Sept. 7, 1996

Anyone willing to spring for $39.95 can have Mike Tyson as a televised house guest tonight. They shouldn’t be disappointed if the visit is brief.

Tyson is an overwhelming favorite to win, and the over-under bet on how long the pay-per-view match in the MGM Grand Garden lasts is four rounds.

The odds in man-to-man betting make Tyson, the WBC heavyweight champion, a 17-1 favorite to win the WBA title from the 29-year-old Bruce Seldon. However, Seldon cannot win the WBC title because of a court ruling that states Tyson must make the first defense of the title he won from Frank Bruno against Lennox Lewis.
