'Twin Tyson' Cliff Couser to make UK Debut
on October 20, 2008 by Administrator
If you are interested in seeing the half-brother of Iron Mike Tyson then this is your lucky day. He is going to be fighting in the UK and might well be following in his half-brothers footsteps and boxing glory.
Las Vegas based heavyweight, the enigmatic Cliff 'Twin Tyson' Couser will make his first paid trip to the UK in November for a fight on the 27th of the month at the Westland Leisure Complex in Yeovil, Somerset.
Mike Tyson's half brother and lookalike, Cliff will be involved in a 4 round contest against 'White Tiger' Mike English in what is sure to be an all action fight where both boxers will come forward and meet in the middle of the ring.
Cliff had to pull out from a fight against Irish based Cuban Heavyweight Mike Perez to take the November date. Of the Perez fight Cliff said “I am 100% confident I would have taught Perez a boxing lesson - they see my record and they think I am an easy win, but I've knocked out James Tillis, Jorge Luis Gonzalez and more recently Monte Barrett who is about to give David Haye his biggest test to date no less – I punch hard – give me an opportunity and I'll put you on your ass - a young guy like Perez with only 4 or 5 fights would have given me lots of opportunities! I wish him the best though, I watched him on YouTube and he looks a good talent”.
And of his first UK fight Cliff said "I can't wait to get to England, I am going to break some bones. I don't care who gets put in front of me - it's time for me to get back to my destructive winning ways, and that is going to happen in England on November 27th"
Cliff continued "I've worked my ass off through the years, alot of people will know me from the internet forums where I look for fights, I'll literally fight anyone, anywhere, anytime - and I don't think I've ever been in a boring fight. I'm calling this UK trip a fresh start"
