yeah thought that was a bit weird, thought they'd have Tyson there for the entire show if they went to the effort of getting him over.

My Sky Plus said Tyson Special all week in my record list, then it changed to a normal Ringside on the day. I thought I was going mad.

How is it cost cutting?

They will have paid Tyson regardless. Now they will have also had to fork out extra for the amusing ramblings of Chris Eubank. So, if anything, they will have had to spend more, surely?

I'd been looking forward to it all week and when it came on i thought have I missed it? As they said and our special guest Christ Eubank, it was hardly a mike Tyson special

I was a bit confused myself.

They had been building it up for the last few weeks, the 'Mike Tyson Special' looked really promising.

I agree that the last two specials have been just that.

Very strange, I've seen longer interviews with Mike Tyson on the news.

Also did anyone else manage to get a final count on how many times Eubank said 'finesse'?

I lost count at 63 myself

Good drinking game there somewhere!

He is such a character though, I could watch him all day, you never know what he is going to say next; apart from "finesse" anyway

Dis you catch his description of Froch?

He said he was "grrrrrrrr".

He said it a couple of times!

I thought five minutes was sufficient.

You can't really ask Tyson any specific questions because he'll come out of the same answer regardless. "I don't know man, I was just trying to win. I'm a different guy now" etc etc so an hour long interview would be near on impossible.

Sky should not have promoted it as a Mike Tyson special though.

It was not 'special' in any way.

If anyting it was a tribute to Eubank (no bad thing though).

Just a bit disappointed with the silly hype.

Yeah I thought I'd missed it or something, perhaps there was too much of Mike saying 'Mother****er' telling Adam Smith that he'd **** him till he loved him, referring to Johnny as a 'Faggot' and saying how he'd piss on Desiree Washingtons grave

Agree.

I assumed it was an hour long Tyson special. Cunts made me like a right twat.
