A recent report in The Mirror revealed that former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson will be ringside at the City of Manchester stadium to support Ricky Hatton's return on May 24. Hatton, who faces the durable Juan Lazcano, makes his first ring appearance since being stopped by Floyd Mayweather Jr. last December.

Tyson had backed him to beat Mayweather, and made the following comments about Hatton before the fight: "I like his style, I like his attitude. I don't like Mayweather's arrogance and it would be good for the sport to have someone like Hatton right at the top."

I thought that comment had a great deal of irony myself.

as far as im concerned Iron Mike can say whatever he wants. The guy has earned that right. Let him think what he wants. and at one time Mike Tyson was THE BEST. but time changes everything and so does Buster Douglas.

Tyson coul;d have been the best heavyweight in history, he could possibly have went down as the greatest fighter in history if the back bone of his team had stayed together (Atlas or Rooney and Jacobs).

When I get to heaven I'm going to have God build me a midget with a parrot's head and a huge rack.

Ali you could say the same about. I think Tyson would have taken Lewis but that's a different thread and a different argument.
Gotta disagree there When they used to spar as teens with Cus D'amato they said Lewis always had the edge
