    I ran across a clip where he was at a K1 event and Sapp called him out. Did they ever have the fight?

    No, but Muhammad Ali did. He accepted a challenge from a Japanese wrestler named Antonio Inoki, and then he demanded that the rules be striking only once he saw Inoki fight. And he supposedly had his legs broken from all the low kicks. I found a real grainy video somewhere... it looked like a boring ass fight.

    It went to decision and was declared a draw.

    Inoki founded New Japan Pro Wrestling and had the last fight of his career against Don Frye.

    There is video of Tyson in the audience at a Sapp fight and laughing at how gassed Sapp gets.

    there's a clip out, after one of Sapp's K1 fights, he calls out Tyson. Tyson steps into the ring and they get into a shoving match. Then Bob Sapp says "They call you Kid Dynamite, well i'ma put your fuse out" and Tyson repeatedly says..."Sign the contract...sign the contract..."

    I'm at work so I can't search for the clip, but I'll upload it or something when I go home

    yeah it was one of those things to generate hype but I don't think tyson could get whatever OK he needed from the boxing commission or something...
