Sorry BB I have to throw in a few fun facts for Tyson. Fatherless, and a burn out for a Mom, Tyson had a serious case of misdirection as a child. He was sent to a reform school in the Catskills when he came across Cus D'Amato who was the local boxing club owner. Amato took him in and taught him discipline and later adopted him after his mother died. Tyson showed to be a "natural" at boxing and soon began a storybook career. D'Amato had a coaching/managing core that kept things simple and respected their fighters as people and not money making machines. As his career, talent, and competitive ability grew he lost D'Amato who Tyson viewed as his father and role model. Shortly after that he began to attract the "no goods" of boxing, the blood suckers that live off of human blood and didn't have no interest in the "person" but only what that person can do for them. Enter Don King, the top vampire. Don King slithered into Tysons life and started the corruption right away. Showing Tyson the other side of fame and fortune (homes, cars, clubs/nightlife and women) he soon gained the trust of the young man and convinced him to do away with his original coaching/managing core and go with his. Soon Tyson began a downward spiral of life and everthing that D'Amato taught him about respect, positive lifestyle and keeping a low profile soon went out the window. Sure Tyson still got into a little bit of hot water here and there when under the careful watch of D'Amato but soon faced prison time, millions and millions of dollars lost and a bad name and reputation that was all the handy work of Don King and his band of vampires that used Tyson all up until he had nothing left but a bad name/rep and hard core attitude. I do believe that if Tyson kept his core camp from the very beginning alot of the bad @$$ Tyson stuff may have been kept at least to a simmer and not a boil. There are alot of crooked promoters/managers in the boxing world and some (boxers) stay away and some go for it. But the choice for any action is usually the boxers. My 02 cents................yeah I guess the choices he made in life can make him dumb but lets not tell him though LOL
TG I totally agree with everything you said and it's too bad Tyson was led into destruction by Don King but
Tyson is a grown man responsible for his own actions, He clearly knew right from wrong.
Yeah I wouldn't want Tyson mad at me, :shocking: I can still take a good punch but at my age and considering the condition i'm in,
I wouldn't even want a scolding from Mike Tyson.
ahh yes,, three good ones! lol
Did you ever know that Lawrence Taylor was in the Waterboy movie that Adam Sandler did and in that movie he's talking about staying away from crack...... funny thing is a week after the movie was released, he was arrested for posession of CRACK! hahahaha DUMMY
