Mike Tyson to ‘fight’ a shark for a TV special

One time boxing champ Mike Tyson has decided to go toe-to-fin with a shark.

As part of Discovery Channel’s annual “Shark Week” programming event, the longtime Las Vegan will hit the water for “Tyson vs. Jaws: Rumble on the Reef.”

Ring announcer Michael Buffer will call the “fight,” scheduled for 8 p.m. Aug. 9.

Shark Week made similar headlines in 2017 when Olympic sensation Michael Phelps “raced” a couple of sharks. In reality, scientists measured the animals’ swimming speeds, then challenged Phelps to break them in a controlled environment.
