    Tyson-Lewis brawl in New York!


    A press conference at the Hudson Theater in New York City to announce the April 6 fight between heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and former champ Mike Tyson was cancelled just moments after the introductions when Tyson immediately walked over to Lewis sparking a mass melee on-stage. Tyson swung at a Lewis bodyguard, then Lewis appeared to land the one punch he threw, an overhand right before both began wrestling on the ground. A Lewis bodyguard claims Tyson bit Lewis on the inner thigh. Iron Mike sustained a knot on the left temple and a cut on the hairline. 70-year-old WBC president Jose Sulaiman was injured in the vicinity of his right ear and neck, but it did not appear serious. Tyson later stood onstage shouting obscenities. The fight is scheduled to take place April 6 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas (which committed to a $12 million site fee), however, before the fight can take place, the Las Vegas DA may decide to level a rape charge against Tyson, plus Iron Mike must be approved for a boxing license by the Nevada commission, who won't look kindly on today's fracas.



    Tyson, Lewis speak out!

    Mike Tyson Statement: "My motivation for approaching Lennox was to stage a face off, which I was told both camps had agreed to. It was Lennox’s bodyguard who panicked and shoved me. Lennox then threw a right. I was here to promote a fight, not be intimidated. I will never be intimidated by anyone and Lennox will pay in April."
    Lennox Lewis Statement: "As a result of today’s events, I will re-evaluate my options after the relevant boxing commission has ruled."

    Tyson's a fuckin' asshole, that dude needs to be put to sleep.

    Fuck him, I'm tired of hearing about this stupid fuck.

    This is no slam on you Yank, I'm just tired of this schmuck.

    LOL! Rod, I don't care if you don't like Tyson, I think he's insane too.

    I hate Lewis more than Tyson though, considering that he grew up in Canada, and he won the gold for Canada in the Olympics and now claims he's British and fights for Britain.

    Seeing Lewis knocked out by Rahman last year made me VERY HAPPY!!! [img]smile.gif[/img] [img]smile.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    TSN is also reporting that Tyson may be charged with rape again in a case dating back to last summer. Tyson is an animal, pure and simple. He needs to be behind bars.

    Lock him up. He's a menace to society and just goes off on the slightest provocation.

    He's far too unstable to be in society, much less in a boxing ring.

    Sorry, y'all, but I'm a fuckin' junkie for this shit! It's all perfectly in keeping with the tenor of boxing as a sport, anyway; without any of the classic luminaries like Ali, Foreman, or Sugar Ray, what's left but the underbelly?

    It's like pro wrestling. A redneck morality play, a live-action coyote-roadrunner cartoon, a classic display of stupidity in its basest, least self-conscious, and most aggressive form.

    And I'm hopelessly addicted!

    Nope, don't think I'll change my sig over this one...

    He brags that he's an animal. This guy needs to be locked into a round room and told to go sit in the corner. What a nut!!

    Tyson is like an animal, but I don't want him to go to jail yet.....

    He has to knock out Lewis first! Then in the rematch I want him to beat on Lewis some more, then knock him out again. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Then Tyson can go to jail. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    From a skill standpoint, Tyson's deterioration began LONG ago...before Buster cracked his noggin back in 1990(?)...The end for Tyson came with the death of Angelo Dundee and Tyson's firing of Kevin Rooney...

    Tyson could have been great...million dollar talent and a five cent head...

    Lewis doesn't impress me much, but I think he will outscore Tyson...I doubt Lewis has knockout power enough to put Tyson on the ground...

    LMAO! LOVE the sig! That's played on Opie and Anthony whenever they have Tyson news. Dude, he's on drugs and then they take him off when it comes to fighting. This doesn't shout trouble because......?

    The "fight" looks like it could have been very easily staged to build up anticipation for the upcoming fight. I wouldn't be surprized, but who knows with Tyson.
