Default Re: Boxers Prison stories ?

Taken from Tyson autobiography by Peter Heller.

when Tyson first went into Prison, some big black guy who ran the place approached Tyson in aggressive manner and Tyson apparently laid him out. They used to call this black guy 'God'

No this is not a joke.

Riddick Bowe, Rock Newman and Jesse Jackson went to visit tyson just prior to his release for potential showdown between the 2, obviously it never materialised

Thertes a couple of mentions of Bowe in Tysons book. In a previous chapter the book describes the boxing scene after Tyson went south and it talks about how the title was passed around and was then won by 'former brownsville chum Riddick bowe''

What is a 5%??

I am familiar with 1%'s, what we call bikers or the police call OMCGs in Australia, but have never heard of a 5% before.

Perhaps the underwear was particularly unflattering.

It would be a great idea a underwear especially made for prison, impossible to remove without the keys or something like that.
The inmate would leave the key outside the prison and nobody could rape him...

Oh....but looking at it I think it looks a bit too open, I mean, you heard the story some posts ago about the "God" in that prison in Indiana.

I dunno, Vic. Seems pretty sufficient to me. Unless your cornhole is on your elbow or somethin. Anyway, I'm pretty sure they don't let you wear these in prison. Could be wrong. Depends on the prison. Like if it was a medieval prison and you were a princess or fair maiden. Then it would be appropriate.

not familiar with the biking 1%. let us share our knowledge.

ok, you ever hear a rapper ever say "g", "whatup g" the g stands for god. later it took on the name of gangster. and hiphop culture in general just call people g. but hip hop in general is drenched in 5% ideology. the choices of words which are

Ron Lyle probably came back from as far of a depth as can be, including having his last rites read to him, but he survived and went on from there. Lots of solitary conefinement to boot.
