The King of comebacks, yeah right, Tyson gets....

KO'ed in the 4th. Just thought it is kinda funny. the reprots say he was laying on the mat with blood running down around his head, he tired to get up but couldnt. He was slammed by basicly an unheard of boxxer, Williams. Tyson won the first rounds with some good hits, but Williams started to brawl back and kicked his butte!

Sorry about the spoiler,

Usually, Don King makes sure Tyson can cream his opponent before the fight even starts. Don't wanna kill off the cash cow!

It's as if the team that plays the Harlem Globetrotters won.

Old boxers can make comebacks, old sluggers can have big problems as their reflexes slow.Tyson in his prime relied on athleticism. His punching power may remain relatively intact but his movement and defense is poor.

Like when Michigan State beat the Harlem Globetrotters a few years ago?

They're claiming that he tore a ligament and that's why he couldn't fight.
I've never seen an athlete with more excuses than Tyson. Every time he loses (which, it seems, is now every time he fights) it has nothing to do with being outdone by his opponent to hear him tell it.

The guy is a moron, a thug, and a poor sport. He's getting precisely the exit he deserves.

Agreed. $300 million in take home is gone and he's $36 million in debt above that.

Had he won, he would've taken home $2 million from this fight, but it seems the promoters are backing off now. So the debts will be around for a while.

To his credit, he was creaming the other guy early on, but then he couldn't throw after a while. Problem is he should've said something, so now he's a loser.
Yep, I have no doubt he came out strong--he pretty much always does. The problem is that he apparently slacks off on the conditioning these days, and so he fades quick. He relies on the hope of a quick knockout, and when he doesn't get it he's screwed. Then it's time to fire up the B.S. machine to explain away the loss.
