Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson returns to the ring next month when he fights Francois Botha of South Africa at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Showtime will broadcast the bout Jan. 16. Nevada boxing officials recently reinstated Tyson’s license, more than a year after suspending him from boxing for chewing off part of Evander Holyfield’s ear during a title fight in July, 1997.
