    He's tough, but you put him on a hover board and he's down for the count.

    Always fun to make fun of the way he talks....after you make sure he ain't listening.

    He’s one of the USA biggest pot farmers. He has a resort in Palm Springs dedicated to smoking weed.

    Tyson was on his way to being the greatest boxer of all time and blew it. Too bad Cus D'Amato couldn't have lived longer. Only he could control Tyson.

    Yeah, guys aren't my thing either.

    Given enough time to get in good shape and train, I would fight him. Of course, I know I'd get my ass kicked badly, but for the right payday I'd give him a good challenge for 15 or 20 seconds.

    Hard for people not around at the time to understand His intimidation power pre-Douglas. A fairly small heavyweight that made men 6 inches taller and 40 pounds heavier give up before the bell rang.

    The base people missed was a guy with awesome defense and super fast hands and combinations, not the one punch power.

    Yea, when Tyson got in close and unleashed a never-ending attack it was brutal.

    It’s also a vineyard but last I saw it wasn’t even opening for a year or so. They are trying to rebrand parts of Napa with weed and wine tours.

    That's the smartest thing he's ever done with his money. The Lamborghinis for furniture was cool, but not financially smart.

    He was an incredible fighter, and one of the greatest of all time. I miss the days when boxing had outstanding fighters like him. I've lost interest in boxing in the last 20 years or so and have no interest in UFC fighting.

    The first unit I was stationed at had 1st Sergeant Peterson (he is also a buff black man) that talked/sounded just like MT. I really had to concentrate to maintain my military bearing (not laugh) when ever he would address the formation.
