It’s official now: Mike Tyson will make his pay-per-view ring return June 11 versus Kevin “The Clones Colussus” McBride.

Scheduled for the MCI Center in Washington, D.C., at 9 p.m., the card also features Muhammad Ali’s daughter, Laila, vs. Erin Toughill, as well as local fighter Sharmba “Little Big Man” Mitchell. The former lightweight and junior welterweight will box an as yet-unnamed opponent.

Distributed by Showtime Pay Per View, the card will carry a suggested retail of $44.95.

Tyson -- the sweet science’s erstwhile heavyweight champion, known as “Iron Mike” -- was knocked out by Danny Williams in his last fight last July.
