Former world light heavyweight champion Lou Del Valle has been added to the inaugural "Mike Tyson World Tour" stop October 20 at the Chevrolet Centre in Youngstown, Ohio.
Legendary "Iron" Mike Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs), former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, headlines against veteran Corey "T-Rex" Sanders (23-10, 15 KOs), who knocked out current World Boxing Council heavyweight title-holder Oleg Maskaev in the eighth round of their 2002 bout, in a four-round exhibition on the pay-per-view event in Youngstown.
Del Valle (35-3-1, 22 KOs), fighting out of Tyson's old home in New York City, is matched against local favorite Zack Page (11-8-1, 4 KOs), of Warren (OH), in the 10-round co-feature.

Page is coming off of an eight-round draw (Sept. 29) against former NABO champion Jermell Barnes.
