    it was really post Robin Givens Mike. He stopped caring. He didn’t really train before he fought Buster Douglas. He stopped caring.

    Because they equate being "from the street" with being tough. Betting against Tyson, fighting those two, did wonders for my bank account.

    He wasn’t better than either, Mike was a big star though and he was so young knocking people out quick so he captured people’s imagination.
