Default Tyson Unleashed

Have you guys watched this before?

I cant find it on youtube, but I downloaded a great interview with him in front of a big crowd in London I believe.


The interviewer keeps mentioning the old timers, and possible match-ups with them. But Tyson always looks uneasy when being asked, and he says the same thing:

"I don't wanna fight these guys, I wanna be like them."


Also when asked about his favorite memory during his life, he responds with enthusiasm and a big smile on his face:

"When me an Cus would watch films of the old fighters, and he would tell me 'This is how you beat Ali, This is how you beat Dempsey, This is how you beat Liston."



Tyson is like a boxing history buffs boxer. You cant ask for a more boxing history knowledgeable champion, can you? Probably the most successful in the ring boxing fan/historian ever.

Average boxer with fairly decent power, relatively unproven at HW like Jones Jr at MW. Bit too mainstream to be given anymore recognition of any form though.

The Swallow may fly south with the sun, or the House Martin or the Plummer may seek warmer climbs in the winter, yet these are not strangers to our land?

If the article is big enough, please make a classic topic about it, but if not, then just PM me the scans.

Thanks for your time.

Reznick, I tried to buy the DVD on ebay but it's region2. Looks awesome!
Klompton, glad you found it amusing.
ATP, one of the funniest movies ever made.
Dude, I referenced MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL. But The BIRDS is truly frightening.
Kalasinn, sorry for the delays. Tomorrow should be the day.
