TYSON NOT DONE YET
Mike Tyson used to refuse to lose. Now he just refuses to leave. Pride Fighting Championships, what many in the Mixed Martial Arts community believe is the top MMA group in the world, has announced Tyson's signing.
Perhaps the biggest surprise at the press conference was the attendance and
announcement of former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.
Apparently Tyson has entered into some sort of agreement with the Japanese
Neither he nor Pride would give any specific details as to
their partnership when Tyson was asked if he will be fighting for the promotion in the future. But just his presence alone at the press conference is sure to
ignite plenty of speculation.
It will be intersting to see which weight class he fights in and how much training he will do before he fights. MMA involes grappling, Jiu-Jitsu, boxing, Judo, Kick-Boxing and more. I don't know how many of those skills Mike can handle. If he fights as a heavyweight, he'll look back and think that Lennox Lewis was Peter Pan compared to what he will face.
Hat Tip to JKDilla.
