Leaving aside everything else, did ya see the scar tissue over each of his eyes, esp the right? He looks like a black Chuck Wepner.

As for the new tattoo he supposedly has on the left side of his face, anyone who knows anything about tattoos realizes that Mike had no intention of fighting Etienne next Sat. when he got it. A new tat takes weeks to heal before it could withstand a punch.

Can't feel much pity for someone who shoulda been bigger than Tiger & MJ combined, has blown $100's of mill's, spends more time & money on his pigeons than his kids, and was smart enough to keep it all from happening, but the man is obviously mentally ill and has been poorly served by those closest to him.

Once Cus & Jimmy Jacobs died & he fired Kevin Rooney, signed w/Don King, & married Robin Givens, it was only a matter of time, but he knew better than to do all three, NTM that he was warned by everyone not to do all three.

"He looks like a black Chuck Wepner."

Wow now we're talkin scar tissue. Tyson probably has plenty of money earning potential left. Those that want to see his brains beat in will pay to see the top tier heavy weights do just that. He seems to play up to that kind of scenario in my mind.

Hi Tom:

I went to the Barrera-Tapia fight which was held at the MGM Grand back in November. We had great seats and after we sat down Tyson came in and sat down one row in front of me and about five seats to the left. He was extremely gracious to everyone and appeared to be in great spirits.

I was also surprised by his height, which can't be over five foot seven inches. He's no where close to the five foot eleven that they advertise.

Best wishes,
