    Man your right, all those first round knockouts were not due to his ability to punch, no, they were due to his ability to cheat. You are foolish to continue this line of questions, as most boxing greats and commentators disagree with you.

    It was premeditated, he came out of the corner with no mouth piece in that round

    Obviously, so we're Holyfields headbutts in the prior rounds.

    You might be on to something here... but I have my own theory (see below)
    Only time mike tested positive for PEDs was after this fight. :pancarta: He blames Holyfield's ear, and in this case, I actually believe him. The ear was probably over loaded with HGH and test among other things, at the time it was bitten and that's how the drugs got into mike's system. The strangest excuse I've ever heard, but makes perfect sense once you understand the insane level of PEDs Holyfield was consuming at that time. Like a walking pharmacy, some said. :sifone:

    It can do some crazy stuff to people. I theorize Holyfields head became battle-hardened due to high barometric pressure. I mean how else can he always headbutt someone and never seems to be hurt, yet the other guy is always hurt.

    Holyfield probably has one of the shelves at his house that has fake books on it and when you pull on one of them the whole thing flips and you see a little pharmacy section behind it lol.

    Pressure busts pipes.

    Evander’s pressure blew Tyson’s gaskets.

    Please cite all your sources of boxing greats and commentators who say Mike Tyson was never a dirty fighter. (Don’t count yourself as one … which will leave you with zero.)

    One can be a knockout artist, a hard puncher, a great fighter … and still a dirty fighter.

    This is a quantum leap for you to learn and it will completely blow your worldview and expand your horizons: More Than One Thing Can Be True.

    Just like Mike can be a great fighter and a big puncher and also abuse drugs and abuse women. All of those things are true.

    Among the things we know about Mike Tyson because we witnessed it and there is film to prove it:

    1) He bit Evander’s ear off.

    2) He bit Lennox Lewis’ leg in a press conference.

    3) He tried to break Frans Botha’s arm (among others).

    4) He landed illegal elbows against numerous fighters in close.

    5) He hit Razor Ruddock low. He head butted Razor Ruddock. He elbowed Razor Ruddock. He hit Razor Ruddock after the bell. Etc. (Go count how many warnings he got in those two fights.)

    6) Mike Tyson cheated drug tests by using his own baby’s urine and a fake dick.

    Mike Tyson was many things. A dirty fighter was one of those things.

    Mike Tyson threatened to eat Lennox Lewis children, although Lewis did not have any children at the time. For Shame.

    The way you say it, it sounds like you think Tyson should have waited until Lewis had children before eating them. Like a civilized person would do.

    Clearly not. He didn't wait until Lewis had children before trying to eat them!
