Re: Was Fan Man really acting alone?
The Fan Man incident was actually a ploy by Mike Tyson in an attempt to discredit the heavyweight division and kill his two main rivals. Tysons cell mate at the time was David "The Pfleugerville ****er" Fuqua who knew Fan Man (real name James Miller) an amateur parachutist and full time fan repairman (hence the 'Fan' man moniker). It was Millers job to use his combined aeronautical/mechanical skills to guide himself into the ring by jumping from a nearby building. Upon his reaching.the ring Fan Man was to shoot Riddick Bowe and stab Holyfield before setting himself aflame with a broken bic lighter that would hide his escape (which is why he wore a ridiculous and fireproof getup). Tyson had plausible deniablity, being in prison and all, so that upon his return his two great rivals would be injured. There plans were uncovered by Dave "El Culo" Diaz, who set up a giant fan that blew Fan Man off course causing him to get stuck in the ropes and unable to use his weapons. Diaz (Bowes aide de camp) can be seen beating Fan Man with a uranium laced flashlight which killed the young Man days later. In Millers house was.discovered several communiques with Fuqua revealing the plan and a collection of ears (Miller had an ear fetish and several dozen copies of Sounds ***y the ear based pornographic magazine). Tyson swore revenge and while Bowe retired rather than face him Holyfield stepped up and one a shocking upset in which he taunted Mike with cries of "Ain't no fans can hear you." This continued in the rematch during which, upon realizing he could not win, Tyson decided to complete Millers collection and retrieve one last ear for a fan he never knew.
That's all I know about Fan Man.
