Don King, promoter of former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, said that there will be no Buster Douglas-Tyson rematch.
"Absolutely not," King said, commenting on Douglas' loss of the heavyweight title to Evander Holyfield Thursday night.
"If Douglas had given Holyfield a great fight, and gone out like a tiger and lost and everyone had said: 'Wow, what a fight!' then sure, I would've made that fight right away, while we wait for a shot at Holyfield or [George] Foreman.
"But after that disgraceful exhibition Thursday, who would want to see Buster fight anybody now?"
Had Douglas beaten Holyfield, King and Steve Wynn, president of The Mirage in Las Vegas, would have co-promoted Douglas-Tyson II.
Tyson will fight Alex Stewart Dec. 8 in Atlantic City, N.J. If Tyson wins, King said he would not take another fight until he meets the Holyfield-Foreman winner.
