The St. Petersburg Times has reported today that there may be a place for Mike Tyson in Winky Wright's newly-formed promotional company, Winky Promotions. The Times quotes Wright:

"Mike, he wants to be more of a talent scout. A lot of fighters come to him and ask him for advice on different promoters and fighters. We're trying to find a role for him in that area."

Wright also pointed out that Joe Public does not know the real Mike Tyson,

"people may not know it, but he's highly intelligent."
