    i'm no expert, but it seems that i find a grammatical or spelling error in a "professional" article at least once a week. i'm not even really looking for errors, either.

    glad to see mike tyson give it up. he's a few years too late.

    I don't buy it. This isn't the first time he's promised to "fade off into Bolivia".

    I predict he'll be back for the the money within a year or so.

    The associated press reported today that even after this fight he will still owe almost 40 million...Blows my mind that people can be so stupid with all that money.

    I don't think they care. They get paid the same if it lasts 7 seconds or 8 hours.

    I loved how he said he didn't want to dis boxing...As if biting Evander's ear, intentionally head butting opponents when he's losing and trying to break their arms in clinches didn't dis boxing.

    But I agree, he'll be back.

    It amazes me that people still pay attention to this clown.

    acknowledging and paying attention to are two very different things.

    I was hoping to see a Tyson/Harding (as in Tonya) match!

    I agree. Tyson's a dick and I hope he's gone for good.

    Sincerely,

    I recall reading an article in Sports Illustrated a few years ago illustrating (pun intended) how he actually spent all of his money. It was absolutely amazing to see how someone can burn through that much cash in so little time. But then again, we all need a few bengal tigers to play with!

    IIRC, he said on Tv he's thinking about becoming a minister or something to that effect. Now that's scary[​IMG].

    Unfortunately I agree with most of the earlier posts
    that say he'll be back. The sad truth is that boxing
    needs him, even though he can't box. If he doesn't
    knock a guy out in the first 2 rounds, he doesn't win
    the fight because either he can't box or he doesn't have
    the patience to try to box.
