The Most Interesting Man In The World


Ladies and germs, the most interesting person of our generation.

No one has ever run the insanity gauntlet and ended up (supposedly) in a saner state of mind than Iron Mike.

Would ANY of us had done better?

I remember the sense of invincibility that he had before the Buster Douglas fight and how he absolutely destroyed Michael Spinks and Larry Holmes. Hell, he took Spinks out with a body shot! A body shot I tells ya's!!!!!

I'm toastin' ya, Mike! I hope you find whatever it is yer lookin' for!

I feel for Mike. He has had to endure more tragedy than anyone should have to in a lifetime. But to work so hard and to end up poor again is horrendous.Stealing from him is lik stealing froma baby and only shows us what sharks are out there.


Poor Mike.

he's had it rough- aside of course from all the money.
he's had a daughter die, been imprisoned (arguably) wrongly, a drug addict and a target for american derision.

i wouldn't trade places with him.

If you haven't seen Tyson (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1032821/) I gotta highly recommend it to you. I watched Iron Mike fight back in the old days, then watched him descend into what looked like insanity, but he comes across as a very real person in this flick. It was eye opening.
