Default Give Tyson a break?

Personally i find the Tyson-bashing in the boxing community a little over the top. Yeah hes done a few ****ed up things but surely we should consider the circumstances in which they happened. His upbringing, the loss of cus etc. I know a couple of people that have met him in real life that were impressed with how nice and intelligent the man actually is. Infact ive heard from various accounts that he is a nice man out of the ring.

Your views please lol.

The man is a class act as a boxer, most people know that but outside of boxing he is a thug and a rapist. It doesn't matter how you sugar-coat it, there is no excuse for rape. End of story.

You know how easy it is for a man to get done for rape?
Seriously, you should re-consider your opinion on his criminal offense.

Tyson is overrated by those who are not familiar with boxing
but highly underrated by those who know boxing.
we dont seem to remember how much fans he brought to the game

But you have to remember how hard it is to convict a celebrity in the United States so i've got to believe that there is truth in his conviction. Plus he bit a mans ear half off. He's a nutter.

Tysons had a lot of problems in his life. He has been treated badly and has often felt that he needs to lash out. Sure he has done things wrong, but haven't we all? I think we should give him another chance and let him get on with his life.
