'Alleged'? As in you weren't there so you don't believe it.

Yes, curse Murdoch and co for believing a guy who was shot and said "Yeah, that's the guy that shot me" might have been telling the truth.

If both sides swear on their Nan's grave, then there can be no decision, so yes, you walk IMO. And indeed that remark of yours pretty much was the case for and against Carter.

When Larry first met Tyson he went to shake his hand, and Tyson refused, initating Larry's dislike for Tyson. Larry asked him why not, and Tyson said "Because I don't ****ing feel like it". Well do you think the president ****ing feels like kissing every baby's head he see's, or shaking thousands of people's hands at a time? What he said before fights such as "I'll **** you till you love me" or "I'll eat your childrens hearts out" he should have been shot in the head on spot. ****ing son of a bitch. He was a dirty fighter too. Hitting after the bell and on break. Hitting people when they were down. Elbowing them, head butting them. Then when he bit Holyfield, he took it to a whole new level. Anyone else would have just hit Holyfield low real good, or just beat the shit out of him after the round. But not Tyson. He couldn't contain his big ass hunger for human ear. He's cussed out many reporters, asked a reporter if she wanted to fornicate with him , and he is a ****ing liar and hypocrit. He said he would never party or get drunk and do drugs again. 1 month later he is arrested and convicted for DUI and possesion of cocain. ****ing dip shit. Well, thats part of my rant, and if I feel like, I'll post the rest.
Any chance you'll change your mind?

My favorite fighter, Carlos Monzon, was, in his personal life a complete monster. He was able to control himself in the ring, he was so cold and calculating, and was actually a relatively clean fighter, inasfar as sportsmanship was concerned. For example, he stepped back at one point in his fight with Tony Licata, when Tony stumbled against the ropes and lost his balance for a second, and actually touched gloves before resuming the fight. So patient and calculating in the ring, and an out of control monster out of the ring. He made other bad boys like Duran seem harmless by comparison. I've never thought that an athlete should be judged by how he leads his life outside of his sport, and although he was a total bastard outside of the ring, Monzon was, in my opinion, among the very best of the elite class of boxing.

The first Monzon fight I saw was Valez II on Superfights with the fight doctor. I was later surprised to learn what a terrible person he was. You just don't expect it by the way he looked and fought.

Atlas said a lot, a biography on Tyson, little bits of reports here and there, stuff like that.

I am sorry but even if Sullivan had been a model of modern political corectness he would still have been a verry flawed man.

More boxers are bastards than not, unfortunately. Beating up your wife seems to be the standard. Pulling a Leonard smile on your face and being charismatic doesn't stop your from being a bastard.
