Iron Mike Tyson]

I will watch this video every morning and I will train like him! I will keep my discipline! If I don't you all can call my pussy faggot and I will send a request to the mods that my new nickname is "pussy faggot".

btw you all should remember three names:

cus d'amato

floyd patterson

mike tyson

jap. it's a shame that d'amato died.

moreover it's a shame that tyson fucked with king. too bad! but anyway, I always hated box fights, they are soooo boring. but tyson fights are interesting, like his character...

Tyson was made boxing interesting. The same can be said of Paterson (ever seen how hard it is to actually hit hat guy? He's slippery, like an owl).

But in general, MMA has killed my respect of boxing outside of a few fighters.

Couldn't stand the soundtrack, so I watched this one instead. I'm not sure what is surreal about it, but if you watch nothing else, watch at 2:27. OMG.

EDIT:

Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson on same talk show - P1 (rare)

Ali is awesome in the interview. The condition / brain injury is truly amazing, given that he's still able to be sharp, albeit slow.

What has surprised me how much basic boxing and wrestling you see in MMA. When UFC made it popular, I expected it evolve into some combination of kick-boxing, judo, and krav maga or the like, but you see more boxing and wrestling technique than anything else.

If anything, MMA has diminished my respect for Asian martial arts, except for Ju Jitsu and Judo.

As to Tyson, he's convicted rapist and a wife beater with an IQ of about 80. He might be a prize specimen of 19th century North Carolina breeding stock and an excellent boxer, but I consider anyone an admirable athlete unless they're a good role model. You want to watch a recording of him, watch him get his ass knocked out by Buster Douglas, or watch him bite Holyfield's ear. You can see Tyson now, working as an object of ridicule on Comedy Central roasts.

It only takes a punch to knock someone out and it doesn't have to be a carefully choreographed punch. Just one random one will do.

Douglas wore his ass out and hurt him over the course of ten rounds, taking many of Tyson's blows, including a savage uppercut that put him on his back. By the final round, Douglas was ahead. He then battered Tyson into a fog with a sustained attack and several combinations, ultimately knocking him out. It was no lucky punch.

I wasn't responding to the Douglas fight. That was a general statement as to what happens in a fight.

As far as Douglas and Tyson are concerned, having not seen the fight, all I can say is they were evenly matched/tough.

Anderson Silva is arguably even more amazing fighter, and he's not a brain damaged idiot, but a decent human being.

UFC seems to have devolved from early on. I watched Royce Garcie's (he wins in just under a minute) matches, and he was pretty amazing. (Not good for theatrics, as he was primarily a grappler.) If I'm not mistaken, most of his matches were pretty quick, though not necessarily all under a minute :). I don't think I've seen him not in control of a match, more just a matter of how much punishment his opponent was willing to endure.

Also this might come as shock to some of you but professional fights are generally fixed.

Watching Anderson Silva fight is like hearing Glenn Gould play Bach. He's a true genius.

Yeh, he was more afraid of losing the image of himself (which was never true) than getting knocked out like a silly moose.
Props to the Weidman kid, he wasn't intimidated and took it. All is good :)

I was a fanatical kungfu / asian martial arts fan and I still think it would be superior than boxing, but only if you train 20 years and everyday with real fight situations, but in the western world (maybe in asia too) most people just train their kata's two times a week, whereas boxer do fights in the ring and get beaten if they don't block good enough, therefore boxing is probably more realistic.

you do know that tyson's management supported and created the image of the "bad black street fighter"? and you do know that if a woman says: "meh I was raped by this bad black ghetto nigger" and if the ghetto nigger says: "no I didn't" the whole world believes the woman?

besides of this, this has nothing to do with his boxing skills. I hate it when people say: "tyson would have beaten ali" or "ali would have beaten tyson" etc, but it's save to say that tyson was one of the greatest boxer ever. He was a heavyweight boxer with the strength of a heavyweight champion and had the speed and agility of a lightweight fighter. very nice combination!

moreover often people that don't understand fighting say "meh, the bigger the better", "meh he is bigger so he wins" and tyson was mostly at least one head smaller than his opponents and beat them!

for the IQ stuff: there isn't any standardization and even hawking said that IQ-tests are for loosers...

btw:
I've started my training, so you still can call me LoTeK baby :P

The woman who accused him of rape was also black, and was highly credible. No means no. Besides, there actually is a connection between his violence toward women and his boxing, because Tyson beat his wife (who was herself a celebrity and everybody knew about it).

You started your training? What did you do, 10 pushups and walk around the block humming "Eye of the Tiger" to yourself? I predict this lasts two weeks. :P

maybe he did it, but woman like naomi campbell deserves it... :twisted:

in what way should there be a connection? seriously, don't you like his boxing style? cus d'amato was the best trainer!
