The thing with this fight that intrigues me is that Kimbo considers himself a brawler but would he really want to stand with Mike? He could use kicks to try and chop down Tyson but we haven't seen kick from Kimbo. Does he then take the fight to the ground where he has the best chance? If he did that how would his "fans" take to him using the ground game instead of KO'ing Tyson? If he did take Tyson down and gnp his way to the win, he could still say he beat Tyson so would that be enough for his fans to justify him not standing with Tyson?
He doesn't train anymore? That's even worse.

I just think the fight would not be good because like Tank, he's over the hill.

He's 40 plus years old and he's lost 3 out of his last four fights.

I see the fight being lopsided.

Kimbo fighting an up and comer with a respectable skill set would be much more exciting.

He ocasionally hits the gym (from what I have read) but if he went and dedicated himself and got back in shape, I think he could still be good.

If Mike Tyson trained and got in good shape i think he would knock Kimbo out. lol@ people saying Kimbo could take Mike down. lmao when has kimbo ever taken anyone down? Kimbo would stand and trade with Mike and get ktfo! now if Mike came in bad shape i think Kimbo could tire him out and maybe knock Mike out.

wait im guessing this would be an MMA match
this is ridiculous
MIKE TYSON IN MMA???
thats almost as bad as kimbo

of course Tyson is one of the greatest boxers to ever live but not anymore
this is ridiculous

please just let it be a boxing match and let the shock fights stay away from MMA

then again anyone Kimbo fights will be a shock fight but Tyson will easily be the worst

Man I think it would be a pretty good brawl and most likely we will get to see one of them KTFO, so i say lets do it.

Can understand why Shaw wants fights like this to happen. Keeps his star Kimbo in the light and they would presumably make it under MMA rules so Kimbo would win = more money. But how many more easy wins can they give the guy before he has to take a chance, step up the ladder. Can't believe another one of these fights will happen without El Guapo having a word with KImbo. He's Clearly put alot of work into him and can't see him being happy with his guy fighting this many cans. Also heard he trains alot at Randy's, don't think the guys like Bas and Randy are going to mind telling him to take some harder fights.
just a thought.

Why would this be bad for MMA????

If Tyson loses it just proves to the boxing fans that they cant compete at MMA level and shut a lot of people up, like that prick Floyd Mayweather.

So if anything it will be great for MMA because not only will sell a record number of PPV's, it will bring a lot of boxing fans over to watch MMA or at least get them to respect it more. Which will also bring MMA more mainstream.
And personally i think this would be amazing fight to watch.

In my opinion it would be bad for MMA because it is a mismatch.

Mike is over 40 years old and truth be told, hasn't been impressive in how long?

Here is the pattern,

Mike Tyson has lost 3 of his last 4.

James Thompson has lost 6 out of his last 8,

Bo Cantrell has lost 5 in a row,

And Tank Abbot has lost 8 out of his last 9.

This is the competition that Kimbo is beating.

I think it could cause a backlash of critisism because when Mike loses, every boxing fan will tell you the same.....

Mike is no good any more. It was a mismatch. Like the rest of Kimbo's fights.

Why not? Tyson can't possibly embarrass himself further. Losing to Kimbo would only make a dent.
