    Someone Has to Ask: Tyson-Morrison?

    Yep, that's Mike Tyson versus Tommy Morrison. It's being seriously considered.
    Yea or Nay?
    A boon to the sport or the end of civilization as we know it?
    I think it would be a huge PPV success . . . but I don't know if I could sleep with the knowledge that we had allowed it to happen.
    What do you guys think? PeteLeo.

    yeah...just heard about that.

    of course it should never happen and of course it probably will.

    Let "The Duke" duke it out with Tyson, who Tommy claimed to always want to fight. Let'em make a lot of money and see if the can finally put it to good use.

    The only Tyson blurb I've seen is him promoting Holy 3. Morrison has said he wants to challenge for the title and wants the ban against him lifted.

    Whatever.

    Potentially out-Freak Shows Blood Green/Butterbean. The question is who is the 'most shot'? My guess is Morrison. Doubt Tyson will ever get in shape to box again though. Will likely pass much like Tyson/Tarver in the Middle East or whatever it was some months ago.

    The real question is should Morrison even be banned? The chances of contracting HIV through a boxing contest is near impossible. The virus in the blood dies on contact with air. On a side note The Duke claims to have defeated HIV & it no longer is present in his body. He was boasting he never took his prescribed drugs which "looked like a big bag of death" and now regularly has unprotected sex with his HIV negative wife. Interesting...

    PS If The Duke does come back i hope they test him for steroids since he now openly admits his entire career was performed on The Juice!

    Pushing 40, a decade layoff & denied his illegal boosters. He should go far.

    I thought he withered down to like 150 when he was an HIV denialist...?

    Saw a picture of Morrison ealier this year and although it is very hard to judge weight on a photograph I would have put him at 180lbs - 190lbs.

    Y'know, it's gotta be said.

    The line between sanctioned boxing matches and bootleg videotaped bum fights is getting thinner and thinner all the time.

    Re: Someone Has to Ask: Tyson-Morrison?

    If this fight goes through I wonder what kind of catchy alphabet title will be attatched to this bout?
    Sad thing is I agree the pay per view on this would probably do well.
    Tyson has nothing left and from what I'm hearing here Morrison could be a Cruiserweight.Sounds like a tough man contest kind of fight to me.

    The ol' Spit Bucket is just LOVIN this thread

    Even for me this fight is lower than layers of grime on the bottom of a city dumpster.

    Morrison would have a rough time against Mesi at this point. It is going to take him longer to get in any semblance of fight shape than Tyson (that is even if he get's promoted and can begin a comeback).

    He should fight ol' Big Daddy Bowe, he is just BLAZIN that comeback trail lately isn't he?

    Now?!

    Back in the day, I'd favor Mike easily; but now such a suggestion is obsurd and should be reserved for the freak show at your local circus. Tyson's shot, Tommy's got HIV and neither belong in the ring anymore.

    Yes he should be banned....and what do you mean impossible? One cut and one headbutt later and it's blood from cut to skin to HIV +. No thank you.

    Nah, the Jones thread wasn't deleted -- it's slipped to the third page due to lack of interest.

    If it comes off, I'll bet it does at least 400,000 buys (Mosley-Vargas II just did 350,000). You read it here first. PeteLeo.

    Do you think Tyson will be brave enough to bite Morrison?

    I look forward to Gor's head exploding when this thread reaches 100 replies...

    I hear this fight is being held inside a dumpster in Piscataway, NJ, with special guest referee Howard Stern.

    "Piscataway." I always liked that name; it sounds both playful and dirty, like the gal who was selling it on your block but would throw you a free one now and again because she thought you were cute. Is it a nice place? PeteLeo.

    Re: Someone Has to Ask: Tyson-Morrison?

    I fail to see the correlation between someone ordering a mixed martial arts PPV full of competitive matchups between some of the best men in their chosen sport and someone ordering the circus event that Morrison-Tyson would undoubtedly be.

    I understand that you don't like MMA, but why bring it up just to dump on it when it has nothing to do with the issue at hand?

    Thank you for saying it.

    There is no correlation, just people spouting off at the mouth.

    Re: Someone Has to Ask: Tyson-Morrison?

    Hey Gor,

    I think you guys have a lot of pull here at the CBZ. Since I'm an HIV educator and also live with the virus (www.aboyagirlavirus.com if interested), any chance of getting me in as the special guest time keeper? Wrestling does that, you just nod approval when the real timekeeper hits the bell. More of a vanity position.

    As for Tommy and his stance on HIV, I believe he now claims he had a "false positive." These do occur rarely, I spoke with a young guy here in town about 5 years ago. He tested positive at one lab and negative at another. Needless to say, he was confused. (Both tests came back negative eventually.)

    As for Tommy, I'm not sure if I buy it. Just because of his track record. It's true that it is unlikely that HIV would be transmitted, but the potential for panic is there. Imagine a judge or ringsider being splattered with the Duke's blood?

    It's sad that in the last decade Morrison hasn't found another avenue. I'm with Gor, Big Daddy Bowe and the Duke at some reservation casino in Montana. With me as special guest timekeeper.
    Shawn
