It seems to be that he says "If Tyson hit me" then pretends to be knocked out. More typical Tysopn fanboy bullshit. Well done.

Yes Louis donated the purses from two fights ,[Simon and B Baer],to the Army ,and Navy relief funds,,both opponents also donated a %.The Government should have cut him some slack,then the public might have been spared seeing him sprawled on the ring apron helpless from Marcianos punches.

In respect of Tyson's comment after the Holmes fight, I believe that was a fighter knowing how good his opponent once was, so decided to show respect & be humble.

Even to this day, Mike Tyson appreciates the great fighters of the o0ld days. He always has. Mike's a historian of the sport.

Yeah, Tyson isn't some kind of idiot when it comes to the history of the sport, he's pretty well versed all things considered.

Used to watch old fighting films with Cus all the time, too.

On the night Marciano defeated an old Louis, marciano said that if Joe were in his prime ,it would have been a different story.



I tend to believe Joe was mistaken and Rocky was right.

Go screw yourself, I don't even like Tyson, you guys were calling the other guy a liar for saying that so I showed proof. Go back to worshipping Ali.

nah, if you look at the video again, the interviewer asks who would win if you two fought in your prime, and Ali points to Tyson.

He didn't show too much respect for Old Larry in their actual fight! lol

I think Larry had him pretty motivated tho.

Hamming up for the camera and giving the young boxer an ego boost. Most of these examples are just fighters being polite/ humble / respectfull to other fighters. We shouldn't read too much into these type of comments.

But you're lying, you silly prick. He says "If Tyson caught me". That's what he says. That's what happened.
