Today Mike Tyson announced that he’ll be fighting Kevin McBride on June 11, 2005 in Washington, DC. This is a comical matchup as Kevin McBride is 8 inches taller than Mike Tyson.
Mike Tyson is the clown of boxing. He’s supposedly $30 million dollars in debt and is trying to climb out by fighting. In this press conference he had a few comical lines.
Mike Tyson on the fight:
I just hope these people of Washington, D.C., are prepared to handle this. It’s going to be a train wreck.
Mike Tyson on his standing in the boxing world:
It’s a no-win situation for me. If I knock him out in two seconds, he’s a bum. If he gives me a shellacking, I’m a bum.
Mike Tyson on maturing as a fighter:
I don’t get into the staredowns and the talking trash. I’m older, so I’m not really too much into that. I don’t want to punch a guy in the face before the fight starts.
