Mike Tyson’s Iron Mike Promotions will make its Showtime network debut with an April 18 Pittsburgh-area card, headlined by three of his prized undefeated fighters.

Undefeated heavyweight prospect Alexei “The Hurricane” Collado (18-0, 16 KOs), of Miami, Fla., will battle Rod Salka (18-3, 3 KOs), of Bunola, Pa., in a 10-round attraction; Olympic gold medalist Felix Diaz (14-0, 8 KOs), of Oxnard, Calif., will tangle with Emmanuel Lartey (15-1-1, 7 KOs), of Brooklyn, N.Y.; and Sammy Vasquez, Jr. (13-0, 9 KOs), of Monesson, Pa., will lock horns with Juan “The Beast” Rodriguez, Jr. (11-0, 5 KOs), of Union City, N.J., in an eight-round welterweight clash.

“Iron Mike Productions is fairly young but is a quickly growing company that has expeditiously risen to the achievement of world-class competition,” said Tyson. “I'm looking forward to continuing our rise to prominence in the field of championship boxing. I was the first fighter to bring Showitme to the apex of its prominence and it is great to have my company start off where I finished.”

The card airs live on Showtime and goes down at the Monroeville Convention Center in Monroeville, Pa., located just outside Pittsburgh.
