it's sad to read this ... thanks for sharing Brother Pan.
It was sadder to see this! Tyson got trash thrown at him when he walked back into his dressing room. The respect of the people, seems to have finally left him. I haven't been a believer of Tyson as a championship contender in many years, but even I didn't expect him to lose to this guy (nor to Danny Williams). Hopefully his pride will not let him step into the ring again...although he still needs money. I suggest he become a trainer.
Brother Pan ... that's a wonderful idea !!! ... he could become a trainer !!!
Wow ... i hope he's reading this !!!!
I can imagine that it was sadder to see.
Unfortunately, this is the end that some want all of us to experience.
I know many of Tyson's issues are a direct result of his own choices, but all those choices were mired in Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome.
A walk of shame is the intended end of all our people ... it seems.
Man this was heavy , I didn't think Tyson had anything left in him
but i did feel he would win this fight man was i wrong now i believe
Tyson is washed up ....... I agree he should train at some gym the
young fighters coming up.......it is sad it's over for him.
Yes, this is sad. However, you can't win if you have no desire to compete. That is my fear with Roy Jones, Jr. He showed signs of no desire a few years ago.
I wish Tyson well.
He went out with a whimper not a bang man. Sad sad sad day
how old is he?
This is long overdue. I didn't see the fight. I flat-out refuse to pay for a Mike Tyson fight. I wouldn't even watch it unless there was absolutely nothing on television or available to rent at the video store. So, he tried to break the dude's arm huh? Classic Mike. Anyways, should Mike even be a trainer? If he's not even in his right mind as a boxer, could he be effective training young, impressionable up and coming fighters? It's sad to see him fall from grace, but I can't feel that bad for him honestly. He got opportunities that many people would die for, and he misused it. I rarely feel sympathy for people that abuse money and power while little to nothing for others on the way. He just needs to stop embarrassing himself.
