Yes, that’s the real Jean Claude Van Damme and former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson but no, they’re not fighting each other. That is unless either knocks the other’s drink over and fancies a bit of rough and tumble.  According to the Cyprus Mail, quoting Turkish press, the two stars will be a attending an event being organised by the Extreme Fighting Championships (XFC) promotions company at Cratos Premium Hotel in the TRNC on 9th October 2010.

Now this is the hotel where J-Lo was supposed to be performing but cancelled because of Greek/Greek Cypriot pressure and Anastacia cancelled because of undisclosed issues and… it’s beginning to sound a bit like working with a builder who one day promises to install the windows but when he doesn’t promises to install the doors… and when he doesn’t…

Now forgive me if I’m sounding critical of the Cratos Hotel but if the menu is anything like the list of stars who were supposed to be performing at the hotel then dining there might end up a bit Pythonesque. Sorry sir, the sirloin steak if off, but we do have “Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, baked beans, Spam, Spam, Spam and Spam.”

Here’s a YouTube video of the last time they submitted a punishing assault on each other –
