TYSON "SAFE" AT
The Mike Tyson story is over for this month. Mike went to bat against the NSAC and got a hit. Even though the former champion received his boxing license, don't count on Mike having more then one fight in the next couple of years.
Tyson will most likely fight in early December to avoid foreclosure on some of his property. This will also coincide with his December 1, trial in Maryland over the fender bender in which Tyson is alleged to have kicked one man and punched another.
SLAMMER A POSSIBILITY
If the case is not settled by then and Tyson is convicted, its back to Pee Wee's Playhouse (aka the Big House).
Does anybody honestly believe that Mike Tyson's wife Monica did not see the incident between Mike and the other gentlemen over the traffic altercation as she stated.
Mike himself went as far as to admit that he over reacted to the situation. Tyson said he "didn't really hit anybody. If he said I did, I was unconscious and I'll say I'm sorry," Tyson said.
I think that tells the story in itself!
SORRY SEEMED TO BE THE WORD
I lost count on how many times during the hearing Mike said he was sorry only to avoid the question at hand. I seriously doubt that Mike and the two plaintiffs were hugging and crying with each other as Mike stated during the televised hearing.
JOHNSON IS LEDGIT, BUT MAGIC HAS AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE
I do believe Magic Johnson was sincere in his speaking to the NSAC but lets face it, Magic has been a long time boxing fan and I wonder if Magic would go to bat for Tommy Lee after his abuse to Pamela. Hell the first time I ever saw Magic was at a boxing event and not a basketball game.
Magic has applied for and is expected to receive a promoter's license in Nevada and is looking to have Mike in the fold.
GREATEST PRESENT TOO
The biggest gun of all was Muhammad Ali. Ali's wife Lonnie read a statement from the Greatest for the commission to absorb. I think that by having these two speak on Mike's behalf, this is what swayed the commission in Tyson's favor.
BOXING IS DOING GREAT WITHOUT HIM
Everybody talks about boxing needs Mike and the game can't survive without Mike. I disagree and think boxing is on the verge of having its best years.
Mike Tyson to me is like the Donkey show in Mexico. Nobody cares what the lady looks like, they just want to see the Donkey. This is the Mike Tyson show, nobody cares who he fights, just as long as they get to see the Maniac Mike in action.
TIME TO MOVE ON
At least this administrative farce in Nevada is over and we can start to talk about the confirmed March 13, date for Lennox Lewis' challenge of world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield.
