    Is Mike Tyson back, or was this just a lucky outing?

    Look who he was fighting. Another schmo (known for his glass jaw) for him to pummel. For this fight and probably his next one at least they're just looking for warm bodies who are willing to stand in front of him and attempt to punch.

    As far as Tyson being "back"... Tyson was truly revealed for what he has become in the Lennox Lewis match. Lennox completely outboxed and made a fool of Tyson. He'll NEVER be even close to what he once was..especially considering his mental and emotional state. Having said that though I will say that Tyson does still have a pretty devestating right hand and he'll have a "slugger's chance" in any match.

    Tyson's back! tufnuts! hide your left ear :oops: :eek:
     
  8. Whoa, now I wouldn't call him that. The guy is crazy strong, and I wouldn't doubt for a minute that he couldn't knock you out in a few seconds flat.

    On another note, I do think this was a lucky outing for Tyson. His state of being is way out of whack right now and I really doubt he'll be getting back to what he was.
     
  9. I think that, after hearing the post fight (in ring) interview, that he's probably clearer in the head now than he's been in awhile. When asked if he was going to seek a rematch with Lennox Lewis Mike replied (paraphrased but real close):

    "I'm not gonna try to fool myself or the public into thinking I'm ready for Lennox Lewis. I don't want to get beat up again"

    No kidding, he really said that. That says to me that he's gonna prepare harder for Lennox than he did the last time and that he'll make a better fight of it.

    By the way, I think Tyson is probably one of the more dispicable humanoids on the face of the planet. :spit:

    I had heard the guy didn't have a glass jaw... he had a glass head;)

    Didn't see the fight... as usual.

    "SEE THE FUNNY THING ABOUT THE TYSON JAW IS THAT ITS POWER ISN'T IN OPENING, IT'S IN CLOSING. YOU CAN HOLD IT SHUT WIT YOUR BARE HANDS, BUT DONT LET IT OPEN CAUSE I'LL TAKE YOUR FINGERS OFF!

    FINGERS OFF, ZOLOFT, WHATEVAH....."


    (end Opie and Anthony voice)



    "They should have a ring around the audience so he doesn't hurt the spectators. A cage match, except the audience is in the cage."


    :D

    I smelled a thrown fight.........

    When Tyson's opponent went down, he took his mouthpiece out and put it in his glove while he was down on the mat. Looked kinda weird for someone who was "knocked out."

    tyson kind of did the same think when he got knocked out by buster. i cant see it being thrown the way etienne got knocked out and falling back on his leg which can cause some serious injuries.
