Rockville, Maryland: Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson could find himself in the fight of his life in a Maryland courtroom today, when he faces prosecutors who want him back behind bars. Already on parole for a 1992 rape conviction in Indiana, Tyson will be sentenced by Montgomery County District Judge Stephen Johnson on two counts of misdemeanour assault, each of which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and US$2,500 in fines. The charges stem from a minor traffic accident last August in Gaithersburg, Maryland, where Tyson's wife, Monica, was rear-ended in a three car chain-reaction fender-bender. Tyson allegedly jumped from the car, punched a 62-year-old driver in the jaw and kicked another 50-year-old man in the groin. He pleaded no contest to the charges in December.
