New York:

Mike Tyson may be getting ready to get back in the ring for the first time in more than a year. The manager Tyson fired just a few months ago says he is exploring a possible fight for May or June for the former heavyweight champion, who is mired in debt and in bankruptcy proceedings. Shelly Finkel said he and Tyson have reunited, and that Tyson wants to fight again. Tyson hasn't fought since last February, when he stopped Clifford Etienne in 49 seconds. Showtime network executive Jay Larkin said he is in talks with Finkel for a Tyson fight on June 5. Tyson has fought mainly on Showtime in recent years. The June 5 date is the same one Oscar De La Hoya said he will fight on in his next bout. De La Hoya fights on HBO. Finkel said the 37-year-old Tyson has been working out with a bodyguard, but does not have a trainer yet. (AP)
