FOXBORO — Representatives of Foxboro Stadium reportedly are negotiating to stage a fight between former heavyweight champion and Peter McNeeley there this summer.

Tyson, 29, is expected to be released from an Indiana prison on March 25. McNeeley, 25, of Medfield, is scheduled to fight Danny Lee Wofford tomorrow at the Worcester Auditorium.

The Boston Herald reported that stadium officials planned to meet in Worcester today with boxing promoter Don King to discuss their proposal. King represented Tyson before the boxer was imprisoned in 1992.
