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.

"We could have staged a friendly bout between Tyson and Malyshkin," Zhirinovsky said.

Tyson flew into Moscow on a visit from Ukraine, where he spent several days visiting Odessa, Yalta and Kiev. During his tour, the boxer also visited Sicily and Istanbul.

In the 20 years of his boxing career, Tyson fought 58 bouts, winning 50 (44 knockouts) and losing six. He last entered the ring on June 11, when he lost to Irishman Kevin McBride.
