Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones jr

Post by carcinogen »

Can't wait. What a fight! Two legends in the ring together. Who else is excited? Don't all raise your hands up at once. I am lookng forward (not really) to Gareth A. Davies' take, or Steve 'Market Trader Loudmouth Cunt' Bunce's opinion on the match-up of the century. My guess is that there will be a lot of hang-wringing and navel-gazing: "It's a disgrace", "It does a disservice to boxing" ... etc. As they take coin from commenting on it. LOL, if only they had some sense of self-awareness. They'd fucking commit suicide.

I'd like to see Shouty "Steve" Bunce in a fight to the death with ... well, almost anyone young and super-fit.

Isn't Tyson a convicted rapist?

He is indeed, Vesp-o, as Mike Parry never tired of pointing out ... until Mike Tyson was sitting opposite him, and then he stopped pointing it out :-)

I'm just wondering who'll pay to advertise this? At some point, a victim's group is going to point out he is a convicted rapist.

What will the slogan be? "Rapper or Raper ... who fucking cares now?"
It's odd how some celebs get away with things others are never forgiven for. That 1988 Olympics 100m Final, for example. No, the Women's one :-)

In simpler times there were 7 weight-divisions in boxing and one World Champion in each; now there's about 14 divisions, at least 3 World Champions, a "Linear" Champion, an Inter-continental Champion ... and other titles too numerous to mention. There's a "World-title" fight every other day [*], and I can't really blame the non-boxing public for watching a fight between two people they've actually heard of :-)

* Not NOW, obviously, but this time last year, and probably by this time next year.

Total mismatch. As faded as Tyson is he is still a one of hardest hitting heavyweights of all time. Jones is hall of famer who was once blisteringly fast and skill full. But let’s not forget he’s a blown up middleweight. Tyson will Ko him easily inside 2 rounds

Not uncommon for boxers to carry on into middle age against better advice. Rocky Mariano, joe Louis, Muhammad ali, george foreman. All guilty as charged. And the incentives are varied. Money, nostalgia, boredom, renewed fame.

Deeply sad state of affairs.

He boxed on for 13 years after the rape conviction and Floyd Mayweather was beating the shit out of women for years and it didn't affect his career one iota

Jones is halfway to being a cabbage aleady, this fight will be a complete car crash

Indeed.. Served his time and fought again, Yes, call him a rapist cunt, but hey, he fought again.

Anyway. Tyson will gas after 3 or 4. RJJ will walk it. :box: :arrow:
