Who wants to fork out wads to watch a psychotic hulk pulverise an innocent human being? Hong Kong Cable thinks it's a good deal. Not only is it billing a match between 'Iron' Mike Tyson - a convicted rapist who once bit half the ear off an opponent - and England's Danny Williams as a special attraction, it's charging a $220 fee. The bout, scheduled to go 10 rounds, takes place in Louisville, Kentucky, and airs on July 31 at 9am (HK time).

Pitting the British 1999 Commonwealth Games heavyweight champion against the washed-up criminal hardly seems fair. Only for masochists.
