re: Why is Mike Tyson viewed favorably?
1 - he’s not fake
2- he overcame a poor childhood through the love of boxing
3 - he recognized his faults and worked to correct them
4 - he was amazing to watch in the 80s
5 - the rape allegation was questionable

I like that he's apparently changes his life for the better.

Someone in here said he wasn't smart, but if you listen to him talk about wars in Europe, it will blow your mind.

Then, there's the latest: he's walking around w/ Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell

He's kind of showed contrition and talks a lot about sobriety and spituality and does a lot of tlaks on the motivational speaker ciruit.....he has that legal weed business out in Vegas. He has sort of rehabbed his image

He was thinking for a minute about getting back in the ring and I swear the guy looks like he could destroy some people.

It’s an interesting point for sure. Kobe and Tyson are honored despite the rape claims, payoffs, convictions. Brees on the other hand…CANCELLED!


Claims? Tyson was convicted.

Claims was for the the Kobe reference. Conviction was for Iron Mike.

“It will blow your mind” the dude is an absolute idiot. I have listened to him talk about multiple things in a long podcast and he is as stupid as the day is long. If anything he said had struck you as intelligent or mind blowing(other than being mind blowing by how absurd and horrible) then I really don’t know what to tell you.

He was a great boxer.
He lost his 5 year old daughter to an accident at home.
All the punches to the head have definitely affected him.
I feel sorry for the guy, but he is likeable.

I can see you’ve either never been in a fist fight, or won one.

Boxing is one of the most brutal, and hard workouts you could ever do. Sure you can throw mma, and wrestling in there, but until you get punched in the face by someone that knows how to throw it.... STFU

Most people who heard the story don't really think he was guilty.

As far as intelligence. He talks bad but is well read. It's like Yankees and west coasters who think we are dumb for how we talk in the south.
I'm actually shocked by the historical stuff he brings up.

He was convicted(not accused) of raping a minor. He bit the ear off of another boxer, like an animal. Also, has threatened and said horrific things about children etc.


Oh, I guess you think he deserved to just fade into Bolivian?

Likeable? He’s a convicted rapist and has said unspeakable things about children and is a complete moron. Also recently beat the shite out of some guy on a plane. Which part of that do you find “likable” ?

I don’t think it was a minor.

And it wasn’t rape / rape.

He paid his debt.

Maybe because that was 30 years ago. You seem very judgmental, sounds Christian.

Lol what? We are talking about a convicted rapist that also has threatened unspeakable acts regarding children, also super recently beat the hell out of some guy on a plane. Also he currently and always will be a complete low IQ moron. Would you give a pass like this to someone that wasn’t a former heavy champ?

Remember when he threw all of his shite out of his window. Robyn Givens and her mom booked it out of the house while he was doing that.
