According to the allhiphop.com, Sean Combs may wear another hat in business, this time not the music or clothing business, but the boxing business.
According to sources, Combs was asked to invest about $13 million into the upcoming Mike Tyson/Lennox Lewis fight, scheduled to take place in June at the MCI center in Washington, D.C.
“I personally don’t know anything about it, but there could be other people [representing Tyson] who approached him,” promoter Shelly Finkel said. Finkel had been meeting with representatives from HBO and Showtime, after concerns were raised about the show’s financing. “I wouldn’t read anything into that,” Finkel said. “There was no opposition expressed [by the Lewis camp] about having the fight in Washington. The financing is not in place yet, but it’s close. We hope to have it wrapped up over the weekend.
