Clearly, Rodney King is over the trauma of his LAPD beatdown in ’91. In a recent interview with Radar Online, Rodney says he wants a shot at Mike Tyson in the ring.
Before he walks down the aisle to marry a juror from his trial, the 44-year-old has told RadarOnline.com he wants to meet Mike Tyson for a boxing bout — three one-minute rounds — at a Las Vegas casino.
“I’m in great shape,” King told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. “My trainer, Marty Feldman, has been training me really hard and if it happens, people will be surprised.”
It actually gets better…
King, the victim of a 1991 beating by Los Angeles police that sparked race riots, is even taunting the undisputed former heavyweight champion to come out of retirement and pull on the gloves for a Celebrity Boxing Federation match.
“Where’s the ‘Iron’?” King said. “I look forward to slapping this steal fist upside his head!
What, other than a death wish, could inspire all this slick talking? Maybe it’s the new love. Maybe he’s still feeling himself for winning a Celebrity Boxing Foundation fight against a retired cop.
Or maybe the Celebrity Rehab session didn’t take.
