Beleaguered former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson will return to the pay-per-view ring as part of a proposed June Showtime PPV boxing card.

Sources close to the network said Tyson -- who was knocked out last July by Danny Williams -- will fight Kevin McBride June 11 in Washington, D.C.

Tyson was the biggest PPV draw in the 1990s, but his appeal has waned of late due to struggles both inside and outside of the ring.

Representatives from Showtime could not be reached for comment at press time.
