Boxing fans will have to wait until October to see former heavyweight
champion Mike Tyson in a boxing ring.

One day after formally announcing the event, Showtime Wednesday postponed its
scheduled Sept. 8 pay TV telecast of the Tyson-Brian Nielsen fight from
Copenhagen, Denmark, until Oct. 13, after Tyson developed an injury during
training, sources close to the situation said.

'Mike has developed back spasms, which don't allow him to train properly for
the fight,' the source said.

Tyson last fought in October 2000, defeating Andrew Golota in three
rounds.
