MIKE TYSON REMEMBERED?
There is nothing about Mike Tyson that should be remembered as great. He was a waste. He damaged numerous people along the way, even worse people propped him up and his legacy is a joke. He was a flash in a weak heavyweight division; he never beat a quality opponent at the top of their game. He was a street hoodlum who got lucky not to be in jail because he could box and truly he never changed. He ended up in jail for the most heinous of crimes. Despite making 300 million dollars he left six children around the country untaken care of. He is a sad pitiful story, he is yet another example of when someone says see what sports does for him he needs sports it is not true. Sports is a crutch that can cover up the despicable elements of a human for only so long, by the end it comes clear and the true colors showed, a quitting, cheating, criminal is how Mike Tyson should be remembered.
