Thereby finding someone he can still knock out
Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson visited Mao Zedong's tomb. And this differs from his last three fights how?
Tyson announced plans for a "Mike Tyson World Tour," a series of four-round exhibition bouts intended to help him get out of debt. Which would at least make him No. 1 at something
Former Hollywood madame Heidi Fleiss reportedly claimed that Tyson wanted to work at her planned Nevada brothel and be "her No. 1 stud." Much like the Mike Tyson World Tour
Fleiss' publicist told the Las Vegas Review Journal that the brothel report was a "ridiculous hoax." Evander Holyfield wasn't available
Tyson said that one of his exhibition bouts could be against female boxer Ann Wolfe. Told you he'd end up fighting Mao!
PRIDE FC, a Japanese mixed martial arts organization, announced that Tyson would fight in a New Year's Eve show, possibly staged in China.

Substitute "head" for "ball"
Former MLB player Jose Canseco signed a contract to be a designated hitter and knuckleball pitcher for the independent San Diego Surf Dawgs. Surprise of the Year
When the Associated Press called Canseco for a comment, they got the following message: "Hello, Jose Canseco. I have lost my cell phone. If you can, please leave a number when you call. Thank you." The retired batter promptly killed himself
Pitching in the Golden Baseball League All-Star game, Canseco gave up four runs, three hits, one walk and retired one batter in one-third of an inning. Like Gatorade, but injectable
Canseco announced plans to hawk "Juiced: the Drink." If his film production skills are as good as his knuckleball, we're totally there
Canseco also announced plans to produce a movie adaptation of his tell-all book "Juiced."

O.J. Simpson reportedly was paid $3.5 million for a book and tie-in Fox television special titled "If I Did It," in which Simpson would tell how he would have killed ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and friend Ron Goldman had he, in fact, committed the murders. Project slashed
News Corp., the parent company of Fox and publisher HarperCollins, canceled publication of the book and television special due to widespread public disgust. Beats being illegally dead
Said Simpson of the fiasco: "I would like nothing better than to straighten out some things that have been mischaracterized. But I think I'm legally muzzled at this point." The living part was key
Said would-be book publisher Judith Regan: "I was told the money would go to [Simpson's] children. That much I could live with." Or if his name was Officer Mark
Simpson showed up at the Kentucky Derby and picked Lawyer Ron to win, stating: "If his name was Lawyer Johnnie, I would have bet my house on him." Hip-hop horse culture? Didn't Hammer go broke?
Added Simpson on the Derby social scene: "You got better parties here than you do in Miami at the MTV Awards. It's the No. 1 event of the year. The hip-hop/movie/horse culture is all here." "Trust me, she gets great highway mileage"
Simpson appeared in a pay-per-view program called "Juiced," in which he pulled Candid Camera-style pranks such as pretending to sell his famous white Bronco at a used car lot. And also an innocent man looking for the real killers
Other practical jokes included Simpson disguised as an Elvis impersonator, a vagabond selling oranges for money and an elderly man leading a Bingo game.
