    I must admit I havent no not in a while. Ive had no way to contact him. I knew him the whole time he was in Dallas training with Curtis & the whole world blew up for him.
    Ike needed help not incarceration he was not given justice in my book

    Ike has never been charged with or convicted of **** as far as I know. He claimed he never touched that hooker & I believe him. Would you take the word of a hooker who "only came to dance for him " LOL
    I know he was no angel but neither was he a monster. He needed help he never got it

    I would say he'd way above paid his dues 5-30 yrs maximum sentence for refusing to pay a hooker more money so she screamed ****!! She was not hurt in any way
    not even touched.
    Anyway if they claim he is insane shouldnt he be in a hospital receiving treatment NOT locked up in a penitentiary ??

    That would have been a hell of a fight with both in their prime. I'd have been ringside for that come hell or high water

    I thought I heard the suits and execs at hbo were nervous promoting this guy, one afficianado said " are we really gonna have a heavy weight champion of the world who is capable of killing somebody?" This has to do around the time Ike pulled the knife at the dinner table. You know guys like Ike find it very hard on the outside, they have to meet their p o. On time without drugs in their system. If they miss one appointment they can get thrown back into jail. There are strict rules to follow. Can Ike walk the line? I don't think he should booze it or sniff coke or smoke or whatever, but a guy like him WHO DIDN'T recieved help, hopefully has no substance disorders or addictions. So what I'm saying is that if Ike has dual diagnosis, mental plus self medicating, he's gonna have to walk A thin line, WORK on himself and follow a strict set of rules. They say an unreliable man is not a good man, we shall see. All I know is that I'm no better, I feel bad whenever I'm not there for someone, but Ike has to be there for himself!

    As far as I know Ibeabuchi finished his education while in jail and he did not eat a single punch in 20 years. He might be currently more sane than many free and currently active fighters. I don't understand the hate. You had a guy like Stevenson who pimped and assaulted underage girls, he served his time, got out of jail and became a venerated champion.

    Holy ****...I figured it out...you ARE Ike Ibeabucchi!

    Really dude, give up. You are delusional.

    As for the situation, if Ike can get it straight, I fully expect him to be fighting Tyson Fury at 48 years old.

    As for you saying I'm Ike ? You gotta be nutty as a fruit cake lol But unlike you I did get to know him quite well in Dallas/FtWorth Texas Its amazing what crazy stories people tell about him but only know what they get from the media.
    No one believes them do they

    I hope your mate Big Leroy did not try it on with Ike because that would the end of him!

    I am a big fan of Ike being a Nigerian as well. However I have to ask you do you really think Ike was mentally stable objectively?

    From what I'd read it seemed like he'd fallen the victim of a bureaucratic nightmare concerning his right of abode / nationality? Whatever one thinks of his past misdeeds, if he'd served his time he should've been free to go. It sounds like he's got some medical issues that need treatment. Hope he gets the help he needs and finds somewhere he can get his life together.

    You are defending him and attacking the system here?
    He did badly hurt the boy, you can´t really downplay that. Yes, Ike clearly needed help but that does not excuse his actions.
