George Foreman wants Mike Tyson to stop with the insanity of his planned boxing comeback and stay out of the ring, insisting that the former champ has ‘done enough great things.’
53-year-old Tyson, who once confused Evander Holifield’s ear for a chew toy, revealed last week he is training to fight in a four-round exhibition charity bout in an effort to “make some money to help some homeless and drug-affected motherf****** like me.”
“I do two hours on cardio, I do the bike and the treadmill for an hour, then I do some light weights, 300, 250 reps,” Tyson said in an interview as reported by The Daily Mail. “Then I start my day with the boxing thing, I go in there and hit the mitts, 30 minutes, 25 minutes, start getting in better condition.”
Fun Fact: In 1992, WIBC’s very own Greg Garrison put an end to Tyson’s boxing career without ever throwing a single punch!
How Did Iron Greg Garrison Do It?
Tyson was arrested in July 1991 for the rape of 18-year-old Desiree Washington, Miss Black Rhode Island, in an Indianapolis hotel room
Partial corroboration of Washington’s story came via testimony from Tyson’s chauffeur, Virginia Foster, who confirmed Desiree Washington’s state of shock after the incident.
Further testimony came from Thomas Richardson, the emergency room physician who examined Washington more than 24 hours after the incident and confirmed that Washington’s physical condition was consistent with rape.
Tyson and Fellow Rapist Bill Cosby: Back in 1989, the daughter of comedian and fellow prolific rapist Bill Cosby accused Mike Tyson of sexual assault. Rather than pursuing charges against Tyson, Cosby and his attorneys asked for Tyson to seek counseling. According to The Washington Post, Erinn was not happy with her father’s response at the time.
Cosby later slammed his daughter in the press, saying in an interview that she is “very selfish.” That interview took place just a month after the alleged sexual assault.
Greg Garrison, Moments to Remember: In 2016, Garrison harshly criticized President Donald Trump for suggesting Tyson’s victim, Desiree Washington, was to blame for the incident.
“I see a news piece from back some time ago when Mr. Trump appears to have suggested it was her fault,” Garrison said Thursday. “I’ll tell you one thing Mr. Trump, had that been your daughter, those words would never have come out of your mouth. And you would never have thought about it.”
Clearly, the bad blood between Tyson and Garrison remains. Fortunately, the esteemed hosts of the Hammer and Nigel radio show have a perfect solution for those gentlemen to work out their differences: TITLE BOUT.
