    mike tyson quit

    he was winning but then in the 7th round, he refuse to come out. He said he dont have the stomach for boxing anymore. He only took this fight to pay some bills.

    $5 million. Either way, what a quick way to make money .

    end of his career

    Will never forget watching him knock out Spinks many years ago. All the first round knock-outs. He was a monster. I was working at Trump Plaza during his hey-day. I remember him jogging through the casino while training and running over anyone stupid enough not to move. Large people, small people, old ladies, waitresses - he didn't care. Don King's cotton poof head never far away. Those were the days!

    i dont know if his heart is full of love or not, but he got his bills paid. In this day and age, its nearly impossible to get a full tank of gas in your vehicle, let alone the household bills paid.....

    Tyson ain't all about boxing anymore, he's in for the money and the publicity, that's all He should just stay away from the sport, he obviously can't win matches anymore..

    Well, I must say that I’m rather surprised at this, and to be honest I’m rather sceptical as to whether or not he has found his “good side”… this is Tyson we’re talking about people; it seems he is more in it for the money and publicity than anything else.

    Love? Tyson? This is the guy that told an opponent he wanted to eat his children. He may still be burping up the flavor of Holyfield's ear. Rather than quit this last fight he decided to head butt the guy and try to break his arm when clenched. I don't think he found his love.

    Mike Tyson
    Sociopathic heavyweight boxer. You can bet that when Mike Tyson was sent to prison, nobody in there messed with him. Favorite quote: "I'm on the Zoloft to keep me from killing y'all."

    Nice tattoo of Che Guevara on his lower abdomen.

    Oct 1998 "A lot of young women don't know what they're getting themselves into. A lot of them think it's fun, a game. . . . But they truly don't know what they're into when they lock themselves into a room and engage in sex with a man who knows how to handle a woman."
    Nov 1998 "I think I'll take a bath in his blood."
    Dec 1998 "I'm not much for talking. You know what I do. I put guys in body bags when I'm right."
    Dec 1998 "The one thing I know, everyone respects the true person and everyone's not true with themselves. All of these people who are heroes, these guys who have been lily white and clean all their lives, if they went through what I went through, they would commit suicide. They don't have the heart that I have. I've lived places they can't defecate in."

    1 May 2002 "It's no doubt I am going to win this fight and I feel confident about winning this fight. I normally don't do interviews with women unless I fornicate with them. So you shouldn't talk anymore ... Unless you want to, you know."

(The media) tells people ... that this person did this and this person did that and then we find out that were just human and we find out that Michael Jordan cheats on his wife just like everybody else and that we all cheat on our ****ing wife in one way or another either emotionally, physically or sexually or one way."

Jimmy Swaggart is lascivious, Mike Tyson is lascivious -- but we're not criminally, at least I'm not, criminally lascivious. You know what I mean. I may like to fornicate more than other people -- it's just who I am. I sacrifice so much of my life, can I at least get laid? I mean, I been robbed of my most of my money, can I at least get head without the people wanting to harass me and wanting to throw me in jail?"
    1 May 2002 During a press conference, boxer Mike Tyson tells reporters: ""I feel like sometimes that I was born, that I'm not meant for this society because everyone here is a ****ing hypocrite. Everybody says they believe in God but they don't do God's work. Everybody counteracts what God is really about. If Jesus was here, do you think Jesus would show me any love? Do you think Jesus would love me? I'm a Muslim, but do you think Jesus would love me ... I think Jesus would have a drink with me and discuss ... why you acting like that? Now, he would be cool. He would talk to me. No Christian ever did that and said in the name of Jesus even ... They'd throw me in jail and write bad articles about me and then go to church on Sunday and say Jesus is a wonderful man and he's coming back to save us. But they don't understand that when he comes back, that these crazy greedy capitalistic men are gonna kill him again."

    28 Jun 2004 In an interview with This Is London, Tyson announces that since declaring bankruptcy he has been sleeping in homeless shelters and living off handouts. "I've got nowhere to live. I've been crashing with friends, literally sleeping in shelters. Unsavoury characters are giving me money and I'm taking it. I need it. The drug dealers, they sympathise with me. They see me as some sort of pathetic character... I know I was a tough, bad-*** talking fighter, but I ain't no mob figure. I did my time for the rape. I paid my money to Las Vegas. I paid my dues. I ain't the same person I was when I bit that guy's ear off."

    I remember on HBO he was like "I'm a lot of things... a convicted rapist, a hell raiser, a father.... sometimes I'm a good husband. ROFL.

    I feel sorry for Tyson.

    Tyson is not same Tyson in 1990 anymore. He is getting older and weaker.. We cant blame Tyson for that. He lost because he is old, his reflexes and speed are gone, he has no stamina, and his just can't fight anymore.. It's over and it'll be better for Mike to stay out of the ring, because if someone like McBride could do this and make Tyson refuse to come out for the 7th round, then, another fighter would easily destroy Tyson.

    Yeah, I watched the fight the other night. I had a bad feeling that Tyson would lose, because if you looked at the statistics, everything was in favor of McBride except actual boxing experience. I feel bad for Tyson, but I think we might see him return to the ring, only because he is supposedly in debt around 40 million, and I'm pretty sure fighting is the only thing he can do to pay that off.

    I'd like a charity fight between michael jackson & Pee Wee Herman vs. Mike Tyson.

    Tyson lost to a man who previously lost 17 matches in a row... if you think Tyson should retire what about McBride? He is a horrible boxer.. if you can call him that.

    Most experts say that Tyson probably brought in $100,00 after all his taxes, child support, debt etc.. then he has to pay his trainers and all that junk. He probably only got $20 - $30k profit from that fight.

    I'm shocked. Mike Tyson seems like such a responsible person.

    I remember when he used to seem unstoppable. How the mighty have fallen...

    Tyson always had a rep of quitting early. Look at all his looses...

    It was extremly rare for Tyson to go into the later rounds...
