There may never be another Mike Tyson, but I'd settle for another George Foreman. Far too many of today's fighters - and I use the term generously - treat boxing as if it were a marathon; they're content to go the distance and place their fate in the hands of the judges. The few exceptions are those with the Tysonesque goal of disposing of their opponents ASAP.

I subscribe to the concept that the best defense is good offense. As it's written in THE GOLDEN RULE OF BOXING: Do unto others before they do unto you.

Actually he was 9-5 after prison. The Norris and Golota fights were no contests. But yeah, he's a favorite fighter of mine as well.

you are correct...positive test for pot following golota & i havent got to the norris fight yet. i can't recall the reason for the no contest. it's been a few years since i watched it. watch it later.

i don't think he had much of amateur career either. only like 17 fights or something like that. i think he was 15-2...could be wrong though
