Tyson didn't even need training to blast out Etienne, but yes, disciplined training is important. It just shows how bad the era of the Klitschko's were, although Vitali was quite good. But these guys wouldn't do well against Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield and Bowe. Tyson Fury would be quite competitive I think.

Although Etienne was before the Klitschko's era, I thought a comparison of era's could be good, especially now in this time of the 'pandemic' and lockdown's. Does the modeling warrant such long lockdowns while people struggle for food? But I digress, back to boxing talk. Top high level earners like Canelo are fine, but thoughts to those boxers at the lower tier for whom regular fights are important for them for daily expenses.

And, one of the few who made the most of his life sentence. He revealed himself to be a brilliant artist:

Any sane person who doesn't want to fight just calls the fight off...

Not Tyson....

Makes you wonder what happened in the few days in-between...

Make no mistake, though. Tyson hit Etienne with a big shot, but Etienne had come to fight, and fight he did... until getting that bomb in the face. It was one of the most eventful 1-minute fights I've ever seen.

Mike lost all the discipline that Cus D'Amato and Kevin Rooney had instilled in him, that made him a world champion.

But even a severely degraded version of Tyson was still good enough to beat a lot of guys.

Sad because "You" weren't part of the win? Fenech it was your decision to cry and fly home, should have grinded it out with Mike for one more week. Clown

I think what he's saying here is that Mike told him he wasn't fighting so he flew home, then Mike changed his mind and went ahead without him.

Reading between the lines, Mike was an emotional guy and I'm sure most people around him chose to ignore what he said one day and just go along like nothing happened, because they expected his mind to change the next day.

That doesn't work for everybody, including most boxing trainers. You tell Atlas, Sanchez or Roach you're not fighting, they'd be on the next plane out as well.
