Blogbaba2 im calling you out?
Now ive seen you talk shit about tyson and praise Roy Jones JR (my favorite 2 boxers)
Now Look your telling me Tyson fought B level opponents and never beat an elite fighter (try carl williams michael spinks larry holmes ruddock etc) and Roy Jones JR who also fought B level opponents (besides hopkins and tony) in his prime u praise him and not tyson? Tyson lost to holyfield,lewis,douglas,Mcbride,Williams Roy lost to Tarver(2),Johnson,Calzaghe,Griffin? I see pretty much the same similarities and dont even talk about style because in tysons prime Tyson threw 4 punches in under a second and was one of the most evasive heavyweights of all time Now Roy Jones Jr was very clever and very much like Ali made Wrong Right.
Roy Jones and Tyson had very much the same career besides the earbite and Tyson having gone through obstacles no man could handle especially a weak minded man
Blogbaba for what your worth ur a biased man and a tyson hater and I cant see why the man was deadly in his 1986-1990 years Holyfield Ducked him Bowe ducked him the 2 people I admit tyson ducked was Foreman and Lennox Lewis but other then that Tyson and Roy have the same leveled boxers on their resume Mastered there styles and dominated in their glory years. and Declined. Tyson declined quicker because if i had his life i would have honestly killed myself.and Roy well Roy Lost the heart and went onto acting and doing other things
Tyson and Roy Jones both were great boxers and should be mentioned among the greats

The Team Tyson groups that handled Mike ducked George Foreman, Riddick Bowe, Michael Moorer, David Tua, Ray Mercer, Chris Byrd, Ike Ibeabuchi, Herbie Hyde, Jose Luis Gonzalas, James Toney, Larry Donald, and some even say John Ruiz, in short anybody who was a slightest threat to Mike, even Eric Esch couldn't get a shot at Mike. The Bean hit too hard, Esch might have got lucky. The only reason Don King's version of Team Tyson gave Holyfield a shot at Mike in 96 is Holyfield looked for all the world like a shot fighter against Czyz in the fight prior to cleaning Mike's clock, so they thought they could add Evander's name next to Larry Holmes's as a safe former great that Mike could say he beat. Tyson's whole early career was as protected as Joe Calzaghe's, and still Mike repaid all that early success by dumping the people who made him for King after Cus and Jacobs passed. Which brings us to Mike's questionable behavior in and out of the ring. Mike was a criminal degenerate, a thug, and an abusive, convicted rapist who almost had his brains blown out by Atlas long before he became a successful heavyweight professional.
Jones on the other hand won world titles at Middleweight, Super Middleweight, Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight, and held 7 useless belts at Light Heavyweight at the SAME TIME, truly unifying that division. At a time when the alphabet soup sanctioning bodies had diluted the word "champion" to a point where it was meaningless Jones had them all (WBC, WBA, IBF, IBO, NABF, WBF, & IBA). Christ I don't even know what some of those letters stand for, but Roy had them all at the SAME time at 175, and he did it by himself with his own talent and no Promoter. Mike dumped Cayton for King, after Cayton bankrolled his early career, and did everything he could possibly do to destroy the success others built for him. Roy succeeded by himself, with his own talent and brains and you think there is any comparison between these two fighters? I don't see it.
Ok, Roy raised chickens, Mike raised Pidgeons, and they both boxed professionally, but that's pretty much where the similarities end. Roy was his own man, and didn't let King or anybody else take advantage of him, Mike on the other hand has an excuse for everything that ever happened to HIM, it's always somebody else's fault that Mike's life was a train wreck. Give me a break, Mike was a B rated heavyweight who hit hard and had the best management team any fighter ever could have asked for to start a career in professional boxing, nobody got more breaks in the business than Tyson, and nobody was better marketed, you guys still believe the media hype, but Mike, no one else screwed it all up.
I am not baised, I am being realistic and truthful when I tell you that Jones had talent like no one prior or since. Roy promoted himself and made the most of his God given talent, he didn't make excuses. At his peak Roy was equal to or better than any fighter in history. Mike on the other hand was a pitiful excuse for a human being outside the ring, and at best a mediocre heavy punching club fighter in it who happened to have a hall of fame support group pulling all the strings early in his career. Yeah, I know it's tough to open your eyes to a fixed fight, let alone a fixed career, but it's entirely possible that every fight Mike had under the original Team Tyson was a tank job, with all of those early KO's being staged for the media hype. great PR, but not a great fighter.
Roy Jones Jr. was an all time great, Mike Tyson was the most overrated fighter in the history of the sport. The two names don't even belong in the same sentence, and"The Truth".my friend is Mike wasn't all that great, the people who managed, trained & handled him were.
