    Default Tyson fight or no

    Please dear teachers, could you clarify this for me?

    I read this text on a website, link below.

    The headline says:

    Tyson fight or no, Kimbo is no freakshow

    Tyson fight or no, Kimbo is no freakshow - MMA - Yahoo! Sports"

    So, I was wondering what'd be the meaning of 'Tyson fight or no'.
    Whether the sentence was:

    Tyson fights or not, It'd be ok, right? It'd be asking about the possibility of Tyson come back to the "stage".

    However, as it is not like that, I wonder what'd be the meaning of that sentence?

    A fight with the Tyson's style?

    one more question: Kimbo is no freakshow, Does it mean kimbo is a good fighter and everybody likes wathing him fighting someone?

    Thank you very much

    Was Tyson supposed to be having a fight with Kimbo?

    I believe so, however, wasn't the sentence be like these:

    Tyson's fight or no(thing, it mean by nothing... no fight)
    Tyson fights or not (he fihgts Kimbo or he does not)

    Thank you

    Whether Tyson fights him or not he (Kimbo) is certainly a worthy opponent, and he will surely have additional chances.
