Mike Tyson hasn't lost his penchant for saying the outrageous. In a television interview scheduled for broadcast tonight, Tyson again denied he raped Desiree Washington in 1991 in an Indianapolis hotel room. But he said the burden of being labeled a convicted rapist makes him want to do it now. "I just hate her guts. She put me in that state, where I don't know," Tyson said. "I really wish I did now. But now I really do want to rape her."

Federal truth-in-advertising laws apparently don't apply to boxing. Promoter Don King and Showtime are advertising one of the participants in tonight's title fight, Hector Camacho, as being "unbeaten." That's incorrect, and Don King and Showtime know it's incorrect. Camacho, who fights Julio Cesar Chavez tonight in a long-awaited showdown, lost a 12-round decision to Greg Haugen in Las Vegas on Feb. 23, 1991.

Mike Tyson is ailing, and his comeback fight next Saturday against Clifford Etienne in Memphis, Tenn., is in jeopardy. Tyson missed three workouts this week, prompting his manager, Shelly Finkel, to fly to Las Vegas to see if the fight could be salvaged. "He's not feeling well, that's why I'm here," Finkel said Saturday. "He's had some bronchitis, some temperature stuff." Finkel said he would meet with Tyson to determine whether the fight will go on. "Right now, it's on," Finkel said.

Breland's manager, Shelly Finkel, said: "He, I and Joey (trainer Joe Fariello) debated about fighting, and Mark said, 'I'd rather go on with it.'

Lennox Lewis' promoter, Gary Shaw, has resigned the week of Lewis' blockbuster match against Mike Tyson, but the resignation will not be effective until after Saturday's fight. Shaw's differences are not with Lewis, but with Kathy Duva, head of the Main Events boxing organization, which represents Lewis' interests in this country. Shaw's departure means the promoter, 57, will not be representing another Main Events fighter, Fernando Vargas, when he faces Oscar De La Hoya on Sept. 14.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post reported that the MCI Center in Washington has emerged as a possible site.
