It's a tad pathetic the way he tries to vindicate himself by saying things like that he would always beat Tyson or that he has no doubt he would always beat Vitali. Just can't admit that some guys were simply competitive and truly belonged in the same ring with him! Can't even admit that after all those years being fourty something accomplished boxer. Like a big, insecure teenage boy
Not that it's very, very blatant, but really do see it like that, to a big enough degree.

* if not '87 then somewhat later but not 2002
** not even getting into the Vitali thing. Will just point out that saying he didn't give him a (promised) rematch because Vitali didn't offend him like Tyson did............................ phuleeeaase....
