This is by far one of the best Mike Tyson tributes I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot because I find Mike Tyson to be one of the most interesting sports figures of my time. Was he the best boxer of all time? Probably not, but he had the skills, speed, and power to stand toe to toe with the best of them for sure. Everyone knows his story. A poor kid from the streets, robbing and stealing to survive, when an old white guy by the name of Cus D’Amato took him under his wing. He exploded onto the boxing scene and was the youngest heavy weight champ ever. Here is an amazing tribute video to Tyson starting in 1985 rising through the rankings, and destroying everyone in his path. His speed and power displayed here is down right scary. They said his punch was the equivalent to putting a phone book to the side of your head and letting Mark McGuire hit you full speed with a swing of a bat. Also they said his bare fisted punch would have a 85% chance of giving someone brain damage, OOOOOOOOOOOOO K.
Talking trash in sports is as American as apple pie, and there are tons of players who take it to another level that the average nice guy can’t comprehend. The myth behind trash talking though is it is always the asshole that no one likes. Of course there are a few villains on this list, but there are also a few guys that you always thought were the nice guy, but on the court or field, they would turn it up so hard that they would make their opponent cry during the game, here are the top 10.
10. Chad Ochocinco
Chad Ochocinco has toned down his trash-talking antics recently, but I don’t think we can ever forget when Ochocinco was constantly ripping on opposing defensive backs. Seriously, you have to be a good trash talker to come up with stuff like that letter you’re looking at. Or to race a horse. Or to send your opponents deodorant so they “don’t sweat” covering you. Or to keep a checklist of cornerbacks who can’t cover you. The man is ridiculous.
Put Mike Tyson in any comedy and it’s instant gold. Just put a camera on him and it’s gold. Why does he not have a reality show yet? Seriously. Mike’s now breaking out his best dance moves with Wayne Brady and Bobby Brown in “Every Little Step I Take” presented by Funny or Die. Best part is Mike dancing past the letters at the 1:39 mark. Threw Mike on the Piano doing Phil Collins and Mikes best reality moments clips here too. “I’ll fuck you til you love me faget!” What does that even mean, its great though. Reality show time Mike!

It features arguably the greatest moments in the careers of such amazing athletes as Mike Tyson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Joe Namath among others.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I could listen to Mike Tyson quotes all day long and they just get more hilarious each time. The former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world has a lot to say. Certainly one of the most quotable athletes in recent memory. Below you will find a small collection of motivational quotes to inspire, compel and educate. Live by these omens and you will be a successful and happy person in the future, we swear.
Everyone loves a good photobomb. If you say you don’t, you’re lying, or you’re a complete loser with no sense of humor. There is nothing better then getting a drink at the bar, with your eyes half closed from the half bottle of Jack that your working on polishing off when you see a group of girls gear up with “kissy” face. You know they are perking up their boobs and popping out their hips for that perfect bar shot when it dawns on you that to ruin this photo would be pretty funny later on when they are going through their pictures. Well it just so happens that us normal everyday people are not alone. Celebrities also love to drop in uninvited on the photos of randoms. It looks like Michael Cera is the leader and pro celebrity photo bomber of this pack, which is kind of funny because in everything else he does he is just the shy awkward guy.
I love this last one with Cera. Seriously, where is he hanging out where there is some kid in an American Eagle polo playing with exotic parrots?
Haven’t heard much about Mike Tyson in a while. There were a few rumors floating around about an MMA career a while back, but i think that was the last of him, until this new documentary surfaced.
Who hasn’t followed him through the numerous blunders of his career and some might say enough with this guy already, but most don’t. Tyson fascinates people. Not because we like to watch a celebrity train wreck, but just to see what he’s capable of. Tyson represents the human instinct, an animal instinct. He is kinda of like what would happen if you raised a man in the wild and then tired to conform him to modern society. His unleashed rage in the ring is comparable to noone, so i think we stay intrigued by him because we want to know where that rage comes from, what could influence that in a person. This doc looks to go much deeper than the average Tyson knock out highlights movie. Not sure if it touches on his roll in Mike Tyson’s punch out, the greatest boxing game ever, but i think we do find out why he bit Holyfield’s ear off. Movie hits theaters in NY and LA April 24th.
