Noah talks with Stefan Fatsis, who reports on sports and sports business for the Wall Street Journal, in our weekly roundup of sports news. Today, they talk about heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson's return to the ring on Saturday in Las Vegas, as he takes on South African heavyweight Francois Botha. This will be Tyson's first fight since biting the ears of world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield 19 months ago. Officials at the site of the fight...the MGM Grand Hotel...say that the fight is not selling well, but in general, this fight is being staged in order to generate enthusiasm for Tyson and a scheduled Tyson/Holyfield rematch in November.
