Dude has a bad start but he was given everything in the world and threw it all away.

After reading his book and documentary you realize he did have it bad, typical rags to riches and back to rags story.

Presently though, Tyson has a family now and a strong support system. He's very spiritual and I think he's in a happy place right now.

Dude gets props every where he goes. Nobody disses em for what he lost. That's all in the past. Plus he's still worth a cool million. Enough to lead a good life. He'll continue to get film offers and could easily be a boxing/MMA trainer. Do you know how many legions of fighters will sign up.

He doesn't need anybodys' pity. My favorite stories are the ones who pick themselves up after falling from grace.

That was one of the highlights of the TUF show (GSP vs Kos) when Iron Mike showed up to give his insight on the fight game.

Had Tyson had not been a dumb ass and had smart people around him he would have been one of the richest athletes ever.
If you knew his story you'd say otherwise. He wasn't a complete dumbass, he did have smart people around him. He left his financial planning to his trainer who utilized a trustworthy accountant. In a very short timespan Tyson's trainer died and he went to prison.

Don King muscled everyone out of the picture, especially the aforementioned accountant before Tyson got out of jail so that not only did Tyson have nobody to trust, Don King literally forced his way into Tyson's life by forcing out anyone who tried to help him. Tyson's fall from grace is directly to blame on Don King manipulating someone in a vulnerable position, he was an opportunist that stole millions and millions from Tyson doing nothing to help him along the way. When you put your whole life in the hands of your mentor and he dies, then you go to jail and there's someone (literally) at the gates of the jail waiting for you it's easy to have things go wrong. Don King is a con-artist and a putrid human being, it's not Tyson's fault he got manipulated by that piece of trash.

If you wanna know what went wrong with tyson look no further than Don King

This is true. Did you read his book "Bad Intentions." Man the UFC should really sign em to take on a PR role to show that a boxing great is endorsing MMA. It's the wave of the future. Nobody wants a brick phone anymore they want a smart phone with multi functions. Same in the sports world.

I doubt he'd say it was all a walk in the park would he? Lol

But yeah he had it hard, but so does millions of other people. He got all of this stuff handed to him while his next door neighbour probably ODed in an alleyway somewhere after a bad rock. Tyson himself recognised how much he was given, and he took it and ran as far as he possibly could with it and you could have asked more of him.

I'm never liked the generic stories. You always get the "I fight for my family" or "I fight because I come from a broken home and I was always alone". If I every get there, my words will be "I fight because I want to". Every day guys become millionaires from nothing. If you're really fighting for your family why don't you get a secure as fuk job in an office? People fight because thats what they love to do. It's not their past, because people of all backgrounds get into fighting. It's not how much money they have, because if you look back Gracie Jiu Jitsu, the art which murdered the early stages of UFC and had the toughest guy, was generally only available to the rich people.

To me, coming from a broken home, poverty, a disease or a hard life doesnt change anything. When you step into that cage or ring, none of it matters. All that matters is how much you want to be there, how much you want to win and how much you are willing to go through to get there.

Don King muscled his way into Tysons life while Tyson was in prison, so it's Don King's fault...

Maybe Tyson shouldnt have raped that chick instead?

Unrelated, but I just watched UFC 3, that shit was awesome.
I got low repped for this, with the words "Bisping will lose this weekend".

Seems legit.

EDIT: Man up and sig bet me!

Claiming the early UFC was superior and hating on one of the most beloved boxers of all time might incite a neg rep. Just guessing though.

If Tyson had the option of an out of court settlement back in the day he probably wouldn't have spent a night in jail much less the majority of his athletic prime. Can you imagine Kobe spending a couple years in jail for sexing up a groupie that showed up at his hotel room in the middle of the night?

I guess Sooj was the only one to get the sarcasm then.

Tyson was never "beloved". He was respected.

And to be honest, if you want to check his record he choked when it really mattered. Tyson smashed his way through cans in amazing fashion. I mean sure, they were world champions then, but theres a reason we have no idea about them now. Ali beat Forman and we still know who George was. George smashed Frazier and we still know who Frazier is. Tyson was killing nobodies, raped a chick, went to jail for 3 years, came out, had one great win over Frank Bruno and then got schooled by Holyfield and everyone else who was great after that.

Actually, thinking back, it was probably Don King that raped that chick, and framed Tyson...it all makes sense!
