The Softer Side of Iron Mike


There's a new documentary out about Mike Tyson. Haven't seen it but heard he talks very candidly about his life. Also heard it's pretty good. Thought he'd be a good subject for a quick portrait.

Great portrait, Brian. A little while ago, I saw a marathon of his fights on ESPN Classic. Despite his personal foibles, he still goes down as one of the great fighters.

Hey Owen. I saw that same special on ESPN. Yeah, the Tyson-era was the golden age in my book.

Owen Schumacher said...

Yeah! Wasn't it great? Back-to-back fights! Can you imagine Tyson at his prime fighting as a UFC fighter? His punches without gloves would kill people!

Yeah. Tyson would of been a beast in the UFC. On a similar note....Kimbo Slice is going to be on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter. It's a heavyweights only season. Should be interesting....
