Mike Before He Was Iron Mike

Listen to the crowd as Mike Tyson is announced. It's like they don't know who he is.

Interesting. Truth be told, I was never that much into sports, and even if I had even been into boxing, given the kind of person I am, I would have lost whatever admiration I had for Mr. Tyson, after he did that horrible thing to Evander Holyfield.

Tyson bites Holyfield's ear in rematch

When I first heard about that, It made me wonder if he had lost his mind or something. It made him sound like a lunatic.

This was 15 years before the Holyfield fight.

After so many years of dominating people, I think Tyson simply did not know how to lose. He blamed the losing on the ref, and he decided to get back at the world by biting Holyfield. That was an insane move. And Tyson has done other things which make me wonder if he has lost his sanity.

I don't remember hearing much about Tyson after that incident, but it doesn't surprise me that that more insane things after that. Biting off his opponents ear, clearly was not a smart move, and it might have been the end of his career, if it wasn't for his status.
