Returning former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is not fighting ex-ruler Shannon Briggs in a Bare Knuckle match-up, World Boxing News can confirm.
The report made waves on Thursday evening as a fake account created under the name of BKFC chief David Felman’s name duped plenty.
Fake Feldman stated: “I would like to announce that both Shannon Briggs and Mike Tyson have agreed to fight each other in the main event of BKFC 12.”
The retired former four-division titlist is taking steps to return boxing to his beloved island, which hasn’t hosted a live event since late February due to the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Cotto’s company, Miguel Cotto Promotions (MCP) and partner Hector Soto’s H2 Entertainment have been in touch with the Puerto Rico Department of Recreation and Sports and the local boxing commission with a proposal to present the first event—behind closed doors—as early as August.
