    Yup, Mike Tyson has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. How does one guy blow $300 million (other than buying basses ;) )?!

    He may also be going to jail again, for assault on two women. What's up with stupid rich guys beating women, huh?

    I think the last thing Tyson did that was really good was Punch Out! for Nintendo. One of the best games ever!

    Let the Mike bashing begin.

    Well....He's not the most eloquent person alive, but he does know boxing, and he does love what he knows. I can appreciate that, all the other stuff aside.

    Well with that mentality, I guess we can also appreciate the works of Charles Manson. Even though he was a cold-blooded killing murderer, I can respect that. He had love for killing others mercillously when he had deemed the right time for him, but I can appreciate that, all other stuff aside.

    Tyson was a crock, always was a crock, and still will be a crock even through his poverty. He just never knew when to stop, whether it be beating up people over petty conversations in hotel lobbies or biting a fellow boxers ear off, in two attempts in the same night. I respect that he made those decisions alone by himself, but as a real man, he must face the consequences. If he does that, I respect him in that regard.
     
  5. He won't be broke for long, all it takes is one more fight and he'll back to making alot more than us.


    He can only read/write at the 6th grade level (fact), so i don't think he can do much else.

    Is he broke? Busted? Or not working?

    Or all of the above?

    If it wasn't for all of the controversy surrounding him, do you think anyone would care about Tyson nowadays or do you think he would just be a washed up has-been?

    Terrorism is not the only "futures" market. There's all that newsprint and airtime that has to be used up.

    All Don King's boxers go broke at the end, why is Tyson any different?

    No, he doesn't - not compared to an Ali, or a Surgar Ray. Tyson is all brute force, no 'sweet science'. Boxers don't bite.

    Ever since he fired Rooney, he has got to hell in a basket.

    SSSShhhhh another smart guy is talking.

    This is spot on. Unfortunately a lot of TB'ers have never seen Sugar Ray or Ali fight and they'll never understand the difference.
