Michigan board suspends Tyson's boxing licence

Mike Tyson's boxing license in Michigan has been suspended for three months.

He was also fined five-thousand dollars for refusing to submit to a urine test before his October 20th fight against Andrew Golota.

The decision will be honoured by at least one important governing body outside Michigan -- the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Marc Ratner, executive director of the Nevada body, says they will "honour any suspension by a sister state."

However, the ruling by Michigan Athletic Board of Control might have little impact, because the former heavyweight champion is not planning to fight in the next three months.
