Mike Tyson Comeback

Pure speculation, but hilarious nonetheless:

Who's your money on to face him?

I'm hoping Barney the Dinosaur.

After the "bite fight", I vowed I'd kick my own ass (ala Jim Carrey in "Liar Liar") before I ever paid for another Tyson fight.

Rumors of Tito Ortiz, Wanderlei Silva, George Foreman and countless others. I hope its someone like Tito who has shitty boxing, maybe start and beat someone like him and then have him matchup against a former boxer. I would hope he doesnt compete at all but if he is, do it against a MMA fighter who lacks elite stand up, then see how he looks and make decision to take on tougher fights.

100% will pay, even if it's $99.99, I am buying that PPV as is million(s) others. I think it could break 2 million buys honestly. Mike could walk away with $30+ mil which is a big deal to him after he lost everything. He has mad some back but $30m is a lot even to him, that's for sure.

Seems Holyfield's up for it (at 57):

I wish I understood more about boxing. I fall into the other category of just enjoying watching two grown lunatics beat the shit out of each other.

It's what pizza nights were invented for. :P

I'd pay 99.99 to see Tyson with Cus and Kevin in his corner. That beating he took from Lewis was the last time I need to see him fight.
More power to him if he can pocket another big paycheck, but I ain't in. Mike was a hellova damn fighter ...a legitimate bad motherf'er and a monster in the ring. He pissed me off when he went cannibal on Holyfield, but I respect him as one of my all-time heavyweights. I wouldn't wanna see him end up like The Greatest. That hurt to see.

It's "The Sweet Science" for a reason. IMO, true ring tacticians are a hell of a lot more entertaining to watch than just two guys in a ToughMan contest throwing haymakers at each other.
Tyson was a student of the fight game...he studied tons of film of the old fighters and his style was patterned after one of them...Jack Dempsey.

Admittedly, that's all I ever tune in for.

That and the whole build up ("Ladies and gentlemen... Let's get rreeeaaaddy to ruummbble!") :)
