Round and about
Having met on Iron Mike's podcast recently these two have apparently agreed terms for a charity exhibition three rounder to take place 'in the eastern hemisphere'.

Who says you don't (can't) play boxing?

I'd rather see these two men climb into a ring, sit down on chairs, and then TALK about boxing for 36 minutes.

If this were a movie.....

Fury gets a little carried away and pisses Tyson off, (Rocky vs Thunderlips) so round three is for real and Tyson knocks Fury out. Wilder can't help himself, he starts running his mouth, so........Tyson knocks him out.

The Mountain vs Fury, hmmm?

Tyson reportedly got sent a contract to do bareknuckle boxing. Can we PLEASE petition to put a halt to this train? It was fun to think about, but none of us needs to see a 50 some year old get gashes the fuck open just because something clicked in his old ass brain that he's motivated again.

Mainstream is getting all wet, meanwhile he was shot to pieces 15-20 years ago. In the McBride fight he moved like he had 50lbs of lead tied to each leg.

He's 15 years older than he was when he lost to Danny Williams and Kevin McBride.

With that being said, I might like the idea of him fighting a 3 or 4 round charity fight with another older retired fighter like Shannon Briggs which was talked about but not any active serious fighter right now. It's just too ridiculous for anyone to think he should be sharing the ring with any top heavyweight right now. This isn't "Rocky Balboa", this is real life and even in the movie, Mason Dixon had to break his hand in the 2nd round in order for that fight to be competitive.

Tyson, in his last two fights looked like he had forgotten how to punch properly, perhaps it was the back injury or something but he didn’t rotate his hips or twist his legs like he used to, he had no fluidity, it was almost like arm punches. He didn’t have the power and obviously his speed had gone and his cardio was awful. I think Tyson at the end was as big a drop in standard from a prime fighter as what we have ever seen.

I'm not interested in seeing him fight in any serious fight. Nothing against an exhibition where the goal is to just go out there and move around without hurting each other.

Fury is a good character I'm sure he'd play his role and not look to hurt Mike or make him look stupid. He'd make it about the event more than anything/

Danny Williams after beating Tyson, almost got murdered by Vitaly in his next fight and went 22-25 after beating Tyson.

Kevin McBride, the year after he beat Tyson, got knocked out in 2 rounds by Mike Mollo. He also went 2-6 after beating Tyson and was knocked out 3 times in those 6 losses.

Tyson was 38 when he lost both of those fights. If he fights later this year, he will be 54.

I'm starting to get flashbacks of how I used to argue with people between 1999 and 2002 that Tyson was completely shot after he lost the first 4 rounds to Botha and before he lost to Lewis.

Those stats really take the shine off of Lewis’s win, that was just the name he was beating that night.
