White Tyson said:Although I have lost my faith in Mike Tyson and am still waiting to have my name changed to Sonny Liston (that's a capital S for Sonny and a capital L for Liston... don't forget the SPACE in between)... I have stated before that the media really know how to blow up Mike Tyson has some sort of evil superbad person or whatever else they call him!
OKAY - He bit some guy's ear
OKAY - He did Marijuano in that Golota fight which he would've won anyway because Marijuana LIMITS your performance
OKAY - There's an assault charge
OKAY - Cocaine addict.. as we have all just found out!
OKAY - We all know about his hot temper and...
OKAY - Rape... although I still believe he didn't do it and it was just a young ditzy model girl wanting to cash in on the whole deal... I bet the sex was Consent HONEST!!!
But here are a few things that you all might like to know!:
I don't recall any one of these guys ever getting a really bad rep from the press... or talked up in a big way or anything! Mike Tyson never did **** like that... and know... he did not assault Robin Givens... NO PROOF!
- 1984 Olympic Gold Medal Winner in the Heavyweight Division at Los Angeles 1984... famous for beating Tyson twice in the Amateurs... only to lose by way of brutal knockout loss to Tyson in 1990 after Tyson lost to Douglas... In 1996 Tillman was arrested and charged with murdering a man outside a Nevada casino. He has since been sentenced to prison.
- Former WBA Heavyweight Boxing Champion of The World Michael Dokes in 1999 was sentenced to between four and 15 years in prison after being convicted of an attack on his fiancee in August 1998.
- Clifford Etienne - On June 22, 2006, following his trial in Baton Rouge, Etienne was found guilty and sentenced to 150 years in prison for a cocaine fueled crime spree that included robbing a check cashing business, carjacking and kidnapping a family, and attempting to shoot two policemen. Prosecutors say that Etienne will not be eligible for parole.
This doesn't mean that I'm doing a backflip on Mike Tyson... I still wish to have my name changed to
and I am still very annoyed with Mike Tyson over COCAINE!!!
2 wrongs dont make a right. Just because he didnt do something as bad as these other guys doesnt mean what he did wasnt that bad. If he only messed up once or twice then everybody makes mistakes. But 14 strikes & your out. He screws up repeatedly. You have 1 assault charge I can think of a few more times than that.
I kinda seperate his boxing career from his personal life as much as I can.
The media blows this up because look at all the attention he gets. He is one of the most famous boxers of all time.
Look at how many different threads you guys have about Tyson. Look how many of you have Tyson in your name or avater. Your just as guilty as the media.
