I wish I could find something "hilarious" in it. Its sad really. I'd like to say: here's a guy with all this talent and he threw it all away. Its hard for me to call bashing someone's face in for a living "talent". Although I admit, he was enjoyable to watch in his prime...but he's just another "talented" thug who was lucky enough to have someone discover and throw some gloves on him.
Hey clawhammer...did you leave the bay area and move to the c.v.?
I was a big Iron Mike fan when he was a dangerous boxer. Back in the day before money caused far more dangerous creatures to rip him apart from the inside. Now every news story is just a sad reminder of the shell that remains of this man.
Mike shoulda never left Kevin Rooney. That was his mistake that ruined his career.
In 1988, Robin Givens, Ruth Roper, and Don King took control of Mike Tyson's life to feed their own greedy desires. His "mistake" was not having someone who really cared about him to save him from these animals. He fired Rooney because Don King ordered him to do it. It's that simple. Once they made him stop caring if he lived or died, it didn't matter who was training him anyway.
The party was all over by that time, and we never saw the real Mike Tyson again.
Well that was my point. If Tyson hadn't of been blinded by the money King was throwing at him, and stuck with Rooney he would have boxed a lot longer, and a WHOLE lot better. But money does that to people, and having people willing to use you around every corner doesn't help.
I would have loved this. To bad he's such a screw up.
mixed martial arts organization PRIDE Fighting Championships signed Tyson on August 23, 2006. He is slated to make appearances at PRIDE fight cards and promotional events.  In a press conference held on December 30, 2006, however, Nobuyuki Sakakibara--CEO of Pride FC's parent company Dream Stage Entertainment--released a statement which called Tyson's relationship with Pride FC and Dreamstage Entertainment into serious doubt follwing Tyson's latest arrest. Stating that Dreamstage representatives had been "speaking with Tyson's management ... since Tyson has admitted that he was in possession of cocaine," Sakakibara called into question as to "whether he [Tyson] can honor our contract with him and whether we should continue the contract at all"
