I thought he was going to try MMA. He would make some money, lose badly but make some money.

I'm sorry his career ended the way it did, sitting on the canvas, asking the referee to help him up, after quitting against a fighter he could've beaten easily years ago.

I always thought he could beat Lennox Lewis, who I felt was a very mechanical fighter. Tyson seemed intent on "putting on a good show" so his money wouldn't be withheld. He essentially let Lewis knock him out in as spectacular a fashion as he could muster. Poor acting job on Mike's part, keeping his left arm down to invite that right whenever Lewis felt it was time. Very, very pathetic. Mike certainly lost his "street creed" that night. He stopped punching and become immobile to give the slumbering, lazy Lewis the best opportunity.

Always sad to see a once great fighter go out at the end of his career.
