I think he was just a psycho with serious frustration problems. Frustration is what led Tyson to bite Holyfield.
If Ike gets frustrated he probaby will get more aggressive, but Ali wil only take advantage of that. Can you imagine Ali taunting an already pyscho Ike? I fear for Alis health in this one, Ike might do something seriously crazy.
Watch the closing seconds of the 3rd round. Ike was one crazy guy. 04:10 onwards
