DSE Confirms "Iron" Mike in Macua For NYE
Confirming much speculation inside the fight media, Dream Stage Entertainment have officially announced their plans to have Mike Tyson fight in Macau on New Year's Eve.
DSE has revealed that their partnership 40 year old former heavyweight boxing champion will be further materialized on December 31st, as they plan to have Tyson compete against a PRIDE fighter in a boxing match, in the Macau Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. The locale serves two purposes for DSE: Tyson is unable to compete in Japan due to his felony rapsheet, whilst Macau is one of the world's hottest gambling venues, which could net revenue for DSE abroad.
DSE representatives say that Tyson's bout will be slotted into the live telecast of Otoko Matsuri, and will be seen by the live crowd at Saitama Super Arena in Japan on the video screens in the arena. It is the goal of DSE to have this year's Otoko Matsuri broadcast worldwide, including mainland China, Africa and the Middle East via internet stream.
Also, the announcement of Tyson's participation on New Year's Eve may be the key to restoring PRIDE's status on Japanese television. Despite losing their deal with Fuji Television in June, those in the television industry have stated that if DSE were able to get Tyson to fight on New Year's Eve, that Nippon Television and tv asahi would both be interested in acquiring the broadcasting rights for the event. According to broadcasting insiders, Nippon TV would be the frontrunner in acquiring PRIDE's broadcasting rights, due to higher spending power.
