Tyson favorite fighter is Fedor, way to go Mike
Mike Tyson is the man.
if Tyson was 10 years younger he would rock the world of MMA.
Tysons favorite fighter is Fedor , no wonder since hes the version of Myke in MMA .
Tyson is the most ruthless and fierce champion to ever live!
Box and MMA.
ya, Tyson is the best, he's my fav boxer, he was so ruthless in his prime kinda sad how his career ended but still I would consider him top 5 of all time
Fedor is opposite of mike in every aspect. Mike was a physical specimen, Fedor is not. Mike is a big mouth, Fedor is not. Mike is a woman abuser, Fedor is not. Mike is a convict, Fedor is not. Mike is a racist, Fedor is not(at least he doesn't show such idiocy). Mike is a Muslim, Fedor is a Christian(doesn't get much more contraversial than that). Mike is an Idiot and been caught cheating in order to preserve status, Fedor has not. Mike is a poor sport and makes excuse after excuse for being owned, Fedor does not. Fedor is arguably in top 3 for all time mma champs, Mike is not arguably top 3 boxing champ. For all the people that sharped this silly comment above, think before you sharp.
Mike Tyson is nothing as a champ compared to Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Jack Dempsey, Jack Johnson, Gene Tunney, Rocky Marciano, Ezzard Charles, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Larry Holmes. He is a great champ in his fighting ability but he is a loser in life and the afore mentioned 10 are better champs.
you say all those names and dont even give lennox lewis a mention. best champ of modern times
sorry mate, just a rambling of fighters. lenox is awesome and he kicked th s**t outta mike.
the only similarity is that they were both small heavyweights who generally fought oppenents what were heavier than them
True, he has three rape convictions. You all like that do you? That makes him the man and a true champ of Fedors aura. Wake up weakers and get a real hero.
Would you put Anderson Silva in the "hero" mould? Along with Fedor he has to be the most classy champ ever in MMA.
Some of that stuff you can warrant, you kind of lost me when you switched from opinion to fact, he is a woman abuser, convicted racist and muslim, only two of those things should be counted against him, but as far as being an idiot, I've never gotten that impression, and to say he was cheating would be to say he was intending not to be caught, which he didn't care about, and I've never seen him make any excuses. He may have messed up reasons, but I've never seen excuses from him.
I kinda agree. I would put Mayweather ahead of him as well as most of the other ten you listed below...I have a few discrepancies with a few of your candidates...
Also, Mike was a small heavyweight like Fedor...not "a specimen". They BOTH have/had one punch knock-out power.
What i meant about specimen was built very well unlike Fedor.
well i guess you're right
i didnt think that much when i compared Fedor and Tyson
you made a really good point about their characters
the religion , the criminal records etc
but you are wrong when you say Mike Tyson is not Top 3 boxing champ, are you kidding? he was the most Ruthless and Fierce Champion in the history of Box!!
and im not talking about the status of champion , or the attitude that a champion should have like GSP for example .
im talking about the man , the fighter! no one manhandle their rivals like Myke Did , KO after KO's the man was a beast!!
and i say he was the most ruthless and amazing Champion because that was his title , he was champion.
but i guess i'll have to say he was the most dominant ,Ruthless and Fierce Fighter to ever live and compete in box , in order to understand my point.
I have never seen an official list ranking him as top 3. I have seen 16th.
I never counted muslim against him if thats what you think it is just a show of the differences.
Watch some youtube on mike tyson crazy interviews and you will see some messed up sh*t. He's a dirtbag and no hero. How do you not think he is an idiot when he says to people interviewing him that he will forcefully fornicate with you and a bunch of other crap? Give me a break this guy is a weak if there ever was one in sports.
He is a scumbag for what he done- no doubt. However, I tend to pity the guy rather than hate on him. His upbringing epitomizes the level of social inequality in America. Everyone he ever knew, lied to him or cheated him. He grew up with a hatred for people, and with good reason. You can only kick a dog so much before he bites.
Yet he is one of few who thought like an idiot in his response to life problems. Like I said before if he has appologized for his actions I would consider giving him credit. This all started as an arguement of his likeness to Fedor which is a waste of effort trying to find the similarities of these two. There both male, and fight with good records. That about sums it.
Hitler was an idiot, even though he had some master plans the all out end to it all would be a dying planet of his own ancestors.
WHAT THE **** DOES YOUR HITLER COMMENT HAVE TO DO WITH MIKE TYSON?
Someone thought it was smart to say he feels this guy is not a justified idiot because it seems he has a good brain. Well so did hitler, but hitler was an idiot.
I will say you are correct on ruthless(cheater) and fierce(with women). And If Tyson was younger I actually have to agree he probably could be a force in MMA if he trained it.
DUDE write a fking book ok?
Will you buy it? I am just pissed everyone thinks this guy is the man. He is far from a man and more like a cowardly women beater.
The btch probably deserved it.
Coward?! Nope. Instable? Insecure? Insane?...maybe.
Does falcon like Mike Tyson haha? Its obvious he's not all there. I guess I'm in the group that kind of feels sorry for him. He provided years of entertainment and I will always appreciate at least that.
I never said i didn't enjoy watching him fight. I only remarked on a foolish comment about his similarities to Fedor which were naive at best.
I hear ya. I think it is cool that he was smaller and dominated though.
firts time he talks sense.....
when it comes to mma mike has his head screwed on. he knows his stuff.
one thing is shore he nows lots about MMA
His hero could've been Mel Gibson! Funny as shit!
Mike sounds happy. Good 2 hear! And Hangover 2 starring Mike Tyson again...F*ck YEAHH
Mike is awesome man, yeah he's had his demons, but they are things he's acknowledged and tried to repent for, and it's refreshing to know that despite all that, he still speaks his mind and what he feels, something most people throw to the wind in the hopes of appearing smart or original.
Where does he repent because if that is true then I will start afresh with my opinions on him and take back what I have said to a degree. But regardless he does not have a history to be proud of regardless of how many fans he has.
He's repented plenty of time over the years, in his movie for one, it was a very well done movie actually, and you saw a lot of his mentality. Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with a lot of the stuff he did, but at the same time he admits he wouldn't agree to it now either but when it was happening, he could have cared less because that's just how he is.
Well then I guess he deserves a second chance if he has owned up and apologized. But this all started as a Mike being just like Fedor comment.
Mike has done some stupid, arrogant, racist, abusive stuff. But i think he has come out of it, he was very young when all that happened. Not saying he should get a free pass because he was young and immature, no guidance after his coach and mentor died, but I'm sure Don King screwed up Mike enough. My opinion of Mike has changed after i watched the new documentary 'Tyson', it was good and quite sad but interested, a bit bias but what documentary isn't.
Yeah his documentary was very interesting even though you see how messed up his psyche is you can actually relate to it.
Oh yea I definitely agree.
As a human Mike has problems,as a fighter top five heavyweights of all time for sure.If he had the right guidance hed a been champ for years soon as Cus died he went crazy.But don't discredit this man cause of his mistakes.Nobody can deny Mike was the champ.
I laughed my ass off at that interview. Tyson has become wise in his older age.
"Germany is in Europe" What are you smarter than a 5th grader? LMAO
He clicks good with those guys, you can just tell.
It was Russia not " Germany"...
all because of custom auto died.... damn iron mike i wish you didnt fall off so hard.
Custom auto?! Please tell me you were joking
I'm glad to see a lot of people have sympathy for Mike.
falcon4917.. weakest comments of all time.. you're making all that fuss man.. Tyson was a beast. He was the face of boxing for crying out loud. Iron mike as a guy is a totally different thing and that's not what we are talking about here.. are you trying to make a scene here? I think i get what you're trying to achieve here but it's a pity because it hasn't worked.. IRON MIKE TYSON RULES!! and you efin know it!
As a fighter I know he has done awesome. But relating him to Fedor is futile. This is what my arguements boil down too and you know it.
I don't think lowkick has seen these many weaks for a single user.. And! it's only in one topic.. congratulations "falseon4917"
that was gay.
your profile says "enjoys long walks on the beach, young, sexy irishman" now thats freakin gay!! get out of lowkick
You were obviously interested.
that was kinda funny i'll give you that
Falcon, Mike was probably THE best champion IN BOXING. He was a champion because of what he did inside the ring, walking through opponents made him the best HW champion of all time. Him being a convicted rapist, Muslim (which was a racist remark made by you), wife beater etc doesn't have an effect on his BOXING legacy.
So yes Fedor is the Mike Tyson of MMA, because they have the same sort of legacy inside of their sport.
Not really. Fedor has 1 loss and was not an in your face sh*t talker like mike. Huge differences in these two champs.
Did you even take any of that in?
We're not talking about what he did outside of the ring, purely based on his boxing
Wow, I have never heard Mike Tyson outsmart someone, as far as the Russia-Europe thing... Anyhow, I am glad Mike is living well these days. He seemed like such a tortured soul for so long.
I agree with this, I learned now that he has been sorry for what he has done. Which is great and shows himself growing up. But I still can't see fedor legacy parallel. Otherwise all MMA champs and Boxing champs would be parallel and fedor type legacies. Anyway I will let this rest since I am getting carried away again.
