Unbeaten Claudio "The Matrix" Marrero (14-0, 11 KOs), rated No. 2 by the WBA, meets No. 4 Jesus Cueller (22-1, 18 KOs) in the 12-round co-feature for the Interim WBA featherweight championship.

This is followed by a 30-minute collection of some of Tyson's greatest moments when he terrified the heavyweight division during his glorious boxing career.
"I never want to be back in the ring," Tyson said at Wednesday's press conference for the IMP inaugural event . "I understand what these guys are going through. We want to be known for being worthy but most fighters are shy."
"I'm going to watch them (IMP fighters) as a fan, and be so happy I'm not in there."
Tyson's countless fans fondly remember his days in the ring and will happily tune in to watch him again in any capacity.
