    Wow Tyson must be really desperate. I don't see how they can make this happen but just the fact it's being considered is sad.


    The former heavyweight champion and legendary master of controversy, "Iron" Mike Tyson, has agreed to step in the ring for one last bout, which has already scored negative feedback by various animal rights activists around the country. The 41 year old knockout artist had declined to comment on the upcoming bout; however, his new trainer, Tony Diccuio has stated that Tyson is training to fight a different type of an opponent, an Alaskan grizzly bear. "This fight has caused alot of controversy, but given [Tyson's] various legal disputes, I think this fight would help him get back on his feet", stated Diccuio at his private gym in Newark, NJ. Despite Diccuio's positive outlook on this fight, several animal rights activists have a different point of view. "I think this is one of the most disgusting displays of human behavior I have ever seen", stated Troy Coehn of the Berkley Institute for Wildlife. "To put this animal in the ring and except him to perform in a boxing match is absurd", "This is the most obvious form of animal abuse I have ever seen", stated Coehn. Tyson's trainer had a different perspective on the matter, "abuse towards who, Tyson's fighting a goddamn bear", Tony Diccuio stated. "Tyson won't be able to adhere to his classic bob n' weave style of fighting for this match, he will have to develop a different style if he wants to walk out with his head" Diccuio stated. "We have Tyson prepping for the fight now, but it may be years before we can get it sanctioned outside of the states. "Obviously, this fight isn't going to happen in Vegas, but we have a few prospects in South America that we are diving into". "This activists can complain all they want, bottom-line, Tyson may be stepping into the ring with a 800 pound beast, it could get messy". "All the proper safety precautions are being investigated and hopefully the fight can be sanctioned more sooner that later", stated Diccuio. For the rest of the world, we can only wait, and see if real life "David vs Goliath" story will even take place.

    This is just wrong for both the boxer and the animal. No worse than pitbull dog fights imo.

    I would have had 0 issue if Michael Vick had been fighting those dogs himself.

    I know it's a sham but... War Tyson?

    Buddy I've been a remember here alot longer than you, just because I don't have the amount of time you do on my hands to make constant posts doesn't make me a troll, maybe it means you need to find more productive things in your life to do.
