    What’s the betting that McBride will be Grotesquely out of shape and gassed after the first minute lol

    Weird career for McBride getting to beat up a shot Tyson and get beaten up by a shot Holyfield.

    I thought it was a done deal for the Tyson fight. In some weird way I can accept Tyson fighting these fights with people around his age and level, he is in good shape, he moves well for his age and he doesn't display the aftermath of a long damaging boxing career like Holyfield does with his speech however Evander had a long career and sounds and looks awful, yes his body is in shape but he is slow and you can barely understand him. Really don't want to him fight, even if it is McBride.

    No please no. Legend fights in combat sports (mcbride isn't a legend) do not look good

    This isn't tennis or golf

    Frankly, I'm more concerned for McBride. McBride could barely talk the last time I saw him. His speech is terribly impared. Holyfield could kill him. I don't know how McBride could pass any physical.

    More BS.

    This site should have a sub forum dedicated to this maybe they could call it " the circus act forum".

    You guys read the issue of tyson having problems with triller? Turns out mike doesnt want to work with triller anymore and wants to do his own fights but triller says they have exclusive rights for his fights/exhibitions until november 2023. This is what mike wants to avoid with his legends only league with being tied to promoters and managers for long periods of time and being stuck in a long contract. Mike wanted over $25 mill to fight holyfield but they turned him down.
