Fade Into Bolivian

That’s what “Iron” Mike Tyson said he might do after Lennox Lewis beat him down a few years ago. Mike, however, didn’t live up to his promise to morph into a South American citizen, and continued lining up fights with over-matched tomato cans to con people out of their hard-earned pay-per-view dollars. Now Tyson’s second underwhelming opponent in a row has exposed him for the fraud he is. Kevin McBride, one of the most non-contender-like heavyweights to ever show up on pay-per-view, forced Tyson to quit after the 6th round. That’s right, quit!

When I was a kid, Tyson was the fiercest dude on earth. Now he’s an embarrassment to the sport and a shadow of his former self. Go away, please!
