Are Eddie Murphy and Mike Tyson being blackmailed or something? I just don’t understand why both are willing to do anything for a paycheck.
And now Mike Tyson has announced that he’s going to start fighting women (in the ring for once, hehe). From SI.com:
At a news conference at an Italian restaurant, Tyson said he would likely go just four rounds and that future stops on the tour might include bouts with women, possibly professional boxer Ann Wolfe. Wolfe, from Waco, Texas, is 21-1 with 15 knockouts.
“She’s such a prominent, dominant woman in the boxing field,” Tyson said.
When asked if he was joking about fighting women, Tyson said, “I’m very serious.”
Russ Young, a promoter for Wolfe, said such a bout will never happen.
“That’s the first we’ve heard of it,” Young said. “No state would sanction that. She would be outweighed by 60 to 70 pounds. Ann would never entertain the idea.”
It’s sad that this formerly great athlete has become such a freak show.
