    And noone replies??

    I think it's pretty sad, when a brilliant career end up like this. I hope Mike will finally cope with all his memories and what he had to live through and will start enjoying life once again.

    I don't think we have many boxing fans here other than Yankee and myself. Although I do know that Pert is a big boxing fan too.

    Is it me or did he not fight anyone of much calibur? Up until his loss to Douglas at least.

    He hasn't fought anybody since, I know that. Maybe...Frank Bruno?? Maybe, but that's about it.

    I like to play the boxing games and I've watched a fight here and
    there... But not enough to call myself a real fan.

    I am a boxing fan. It just seems that there isnt much to get excited about these days.

    I actually feel sorry for Tyson, I am not excusing him for his past actions. I just think the guy has been jerked around most of his life and really doesnt know how to act, add depression, fame and millions of dollars and you get a pretty fucked up adult. He really has no family and doesnt know who is his true friend and who is his friend because he is Mike Tyson.

    And thats about what its worth.

    Yeah, I miss the Leonard, Hearns, Hagler, Duran days myself. It's been dull for a long time now.

    Another sad story in the world of boxing. Tyson has been washed up for years now and the fight against McBride should prove this.

    On a serious boxing note did anyone watch the Hatton v.Tszyu fight?

    I didn't see that fight, I just wanted to comment on Tyson. I agree with ya man. This McBride guy is HUGE, and Tyson hasn't handled a guy of that size in a very long time. This fight could get ugly. The last few fights Mike has really been heavy, so I'll be interested to see if he comes in around 230 or not. Either way, he's still gonna have to deal with the wing span of McBride's.

    I also miss those days of Duran, Hearns, Leonard, Tyson in his prime, Duran, Chavez. Actually I heard Julio Ceasar Chavez is making a come back! The guy is like 45 I think, but wants to fight again. Right now the Heavyweight division is just awful to watch. I haven't watched a good heavyweight bout in years. Benard Hopkins is my favorite figher, and I pretty much stick to middleweights and light heavyweights. That's were the good bouts are anyways.

    That a 5'10", 40 year old guy with short arms is fighting someone who is 8 inches taller than him and probably 10 years younger is incredible.

    Same thing with Lennox Lewis.....that guy wasn't a heavyweight. He's a Superheavyweight who wasn't any good until everyone else his age (Tyson, Holyfield, etc.) slowed down. Garbage French or Canadian titles don't count.....

    Yeah for sure. That is why I post mainly articles on Tyson here, since he is the only boxer that seems to get any attention in topics on this site.

    I couldn't watch it because of my schedule, but I've heard it was damn brutal. Was it something like that Tszyu asked for a fight to end before the time?
