WTF: MIKE TYSON-Retired?

Who saw the god awful fight last night? What up with Tyson quitting. Then after he quit they interviewed him and he said he doesn't love the sport anymore it doesn't define him and he only fought to pay his bills and to secure a future for his children and that this is his last fight. Whatever credibility/marketability Tyson had left going into this fight against a big blob marshmallow man Kevin McBride (horrible fighter, slow fat, etc) is now vanished. Tyson went on to say that he apologizes for the outcome and wishes people could get refunded.

Also, during the fight Tyson was headbutting McBride and even put him in a couple armbars, trying to snap his arm.......

It is sad to see one of the greatest fighters ever to bow out like this:

he's sucked for years
hasn't faught a decent fight against a good fighter since douglas whooped his ass. and he's been doing the dirty fighting tactics since the holyfield fight, biting ears, twisting arms, headbutting. it's like he wants to get DQ'ed so he can get out of the ring... and why not, he'd still get a few $mil per fight, cause people love to watch a trainwreck.

hope you didn't buy it on PPV

Who cares. Tyson was great during the olympics and fun to watch when he was young and devestatingly brutal. The last 5 to 10 years he's a has been joke. (And yes I am bitter about paying for it and having people over )

Are we there yet?
