Mike Tyson Warns 50 Cent About The Boxing Business

By Osman Rodriguez

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson appeared on Entertainment Sports Radio and discussed the topic of TMT Promotions, the promotional company started by rapper 50 Cent and his close friend Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Tyson hopes 50 Cent is able to succeed but also warned him about the dangers of being involved in the boxing industry.

"I wish 50 Cent the best of luck in the world with the endeavor that he's doing, but this is something that 50 Cent has to know when you're dealing with something like boxing and you're dealing with human beings. We calling it peddling the flesh. Even though you're paying them, you're still dealing in flesh. Life in general is very short and unpredictable but its more unpredictable than it is short. So you have to understand that when you're dealing with human beings, you're dealing with the probability of anything happening," Tyson said.

"And you also have to know this about boxing. It's the only business in the world, the only legalized business, where everything is not always on top of the table. It should be taken over by the government. 50 is a rap star, 50 is an entertainer, 50 is an entrepreneur. He doesn't really know the ins and outs of boxing. He probably knows what Floyd tells him, but once he gets in this arena, everyone that was ever his friend on the other side is [now] his enemy. Their job is to decimate him financially and get him out of the business."

Advice from Mike Tyson would be Like Bob Arum and Don King swearing on the Bible they is telling the truth. I wouldn't trust anything the ex-con lowlife rapist Tyson is saying.
