moter saying Mike Tyson throws punches like a girl has an offer he believes Tyson cant refuse a potential million payday Two days after Tysons first fight in over four years turned out to be an 89second debacle Bob Arum pro posed that Foreman and Tyson meet in what he believes would be the biggest fight by far of all The key element Arum said is that a neutral party would handle the money If Tysons a man hes going to rise to the challenge instead of fighting guys who are not even professional fighters like his last Arum said referring to Peter McNeeley Three months ago Foreman said he wouldnt fight Tyson if Don King was the promoter King Tysons promoter since 1988 and Arum have been bitter rivals for many years Now weve found a solution for Arum said before boarding a plane for New York My feeling is that anybody can say theyre involved or not involved in the This is the proposition Well let some neutral par ty come in that everybody respects and handle all the money and make all the arrangements and that would eliminate Georges concern DENVER Denver Bron cos new offense is a lot like the old one possessing plenty of firepower Last years porous defense however has yet to
