Stood up

Sadly, we may never know what Mike Tyson and Vladimir Zhirinovsky had to talk about. RIA Novosti reports:

Former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson failed to turn up to a meeting Tuesday with leader of the Russian Liberal Democratic Party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky.

According to Zhirinovsky, who has a reputation as an extravagant politician and something of an ultra-nationalist, Tyson was not feeling well. The meeting was supposed to have taken place in a downtown Moscow restaurant.

Zhirinovsky playfully suggested that Tyson might have been scared of his bodyguard and LDPR member Oleg Malyshkin, who was also a good boxer in his prime.
