Mike Tyson, the former world heavyweight champion, will fight Buster Mathis Jnr on 16 December in Philadelphia's Spectrum arena, after the New Jersey Casino Control Commission barred the fight from taking place in Atlantic City.

The World Association light heavyweight challenge by Stefan Angehrn, of Switzerland, against Virgil Hill, the American champion, may be called off after two sponsors have withdrawn. The bout had been scheduled for 8 December.
