Atlanta:

The state of Georgia has granted Mike Tyson a license. This means that he could take on Lennox Lewis sometime in June in Atlanta. The original fight was meant to be in Las Vegas in April but that was scuttled after Tyson's fracas with Lewis at a press conference in New York that led the Nevada authorities to take away his license.
