Right? Lol. I kept listening. Sounded like a regular called in and started trolling them.
boxing debate show people call in etc
TS also feels he can beat Wilder and is technically superior to him.
I think he should rematch the speed bag first though. He was 0-1 after that one.
I love that he made this thread to diss Wilder and really try and convince people here that old Mike beats him. It backfired badly on him so then he decides to challenge those that laughed at him to fight. I accept, he makes excuses, pulls out, avoids his own thread along with the Rumble on the Lake thread, and then disappears for the second time in two weeks. He's his own worst enemy. lol
That I cant believe. Okay he had made unbelievable statements but that is even for him too much. You really sure.
And if it happens tomorrow I would like someone to film it.
I am sure a 53 y/o Wilder would indeed die versus 53 y/o Mike, but father time doesn't wait for anyone
A power punch from Mike is still lethal, but he has got to be able to land it too
I don't disagree with you. I do think a big part of the problem with him later in his career was mental and lack of motivation. I think he'll do better than some expect due to him being much better off mentally now, but yeah age will still play a factor.
He was always mentally weak. That goes even back to his training as a youth were it was told that he had a bully mentality by his coaches. Would dish it out and do petty crimes on the street but not take it. It was just overshadowed by his level of skill but at elite level that was always easy to grasp. In the opponents he choose after Holyfield f.e and how he reacted when confronted with adversity in fights.
That was still close to his prime and he choose Botha, Francis, Nielsen Savarese when there were way better Boxers available. Its tough if you are a fan but he never had the mentality of a champ.
Rumble On The Lake
@Old Cat is like Don King, Bob Arum, DLH, Haymon, Mayweather and Hearn all rolled into one (with just a touch of Broner) as a promoter.
Just for that name.
j/k on the Broner part
yeah it reminds me of the old aphorism “it’s better to remain silent and have everyone think you’re a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”
It's insane to believe he can come back at this stage.
Foreman was only 37 when he launched his comeback and Foreman was a very different fighter to Tyson. Tyson is 53.
Tyson admitted after the McBride fight he had not taken boxing seriously since 1990. 30 years ago.
He wasn't the same fighter after he got out of prison. He was shell by Williams and McBride and that was 15 years ago.
Tyson was a phenom. A freak of nature, a savant. Unfortunately he has spent 30 years getting drunk and high.
A young Mike Tyson was awesome. A combination of speed and power unseen for a heavyweight.
That was 30 years ago. 30 years ago Milli Vanilli were top of the charts and the Sega Genesis had just been released.
Let that sink in.
Read the title and thought it was meant as a joke.
It is a joke.
