For DUI and cocaine. Man. This guy just won't quit will he?

Talk about a sad story from boxing. This is why boxing is in trouble, folks, it's all because of guys like Tyson. It's his troubles and his image (ie. biting Evander Holyfield's ear off) that have contributed to the rapid decline of the sport of boxing in the eyes of the public.

You look at Rocky Balboa and these movies and it's an idealized look at the sport. It's the way you want that sport to be. But then there's the reality, and Tyson is the personification of that. And what's really sad is he was the greatest when he was at the top of his game! No one touch him. Unfortunately, the only man who could beat Mike Tyson was Mike Tyson---- and ubnfortunately, that is exactly what has happened.

I wish the sport of boxing was like those Rocky movies. But it isn't. And it's too bad.
