It's official: Mike Tyson is going to be a part of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel this year. And they're trying to make us believe he'll FIGHT a great white shark.
Tyson vs. Jaws: Rumble on the Reef airs Sunday, August 9th at 9:00 P.M. Discovery says Tyson will, quote, "square off" with a shark in the name of research. In the promo video, Mike promises that "someone's gonna get bit!"
Yeah...we don't think the shark OR Mike is in danger of losing an ear. Remember when Discovery Channel made us think Michael Phelps was going to race a shark a couple years ago? We're betting this is a similar situation.
We'll still be watching of course. It's Shark Week, duh.
