I've gotten hooked watching the old Tyson fights on ESPN classic. The uy's an animal. He really never takes too many punches but sure as hell can deliver. As far as speed and punching power and technique I think he's about as good as it gets. I could watch that stuff for hours.

I have been watching those too.

He was absolutely stunning. Too bad he really IS an animal and couldn't control his dominance issues.

AKA felony rape and sodomy.

I watched most of those fights live (on TV of course). He was without a doubt the "baddest man on the planet" at the time.

What a waste.

Maybe another Che tat or two would do it...

I'll bet he couldn't take a full-power shot from you know who, though.

Really the only person that could control him was Gus D'Amato. After he died, the descent began.

His rape trial was pretty much a joke; Don King convinced him to use his tax attorney and the woman he had been accused of raping had a history of accusing other men for rape and then dropping the charges, evidence and testimony regarding that were not introduced.

Another good one to catch on 'classic' is "The Top 5 Reasons You Can't Blame... Mike Tyson for Losing to Buster Douglas."
