Thanks for the post.
It was also reported in (UK) Boxing News (weekly).
Tyson now some 13.5stone (85Kgs). Wow. He must have become Vegetarian...

Naw man, naw. I loved chubby Tyson. It fits the style, a retired boxer, finally not having to watch his weight, finally living it up in the pie department, with diminished reflexes but still massive (pie) power in his hands. Pfft, now he's all health conscious and vegan and responsible. :DudeComeOn:
P.S. Ellen is an uptight ****.

The old 'bob and weave' Tyson..nice.
Can he still be 'Iron Mike' if he doesn't eat meat?" If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

Blimey. Not a bad guess...Vegan. Crikey.
Thanks to Kambei and Tranquil for the vids.
I recall a rumour that when he left prison (after the Desiree Washington conviction) that he was just over 13 stone and I thought it might have been the prison diet. As there was no confirmation, I decided it might have just been rumour cos when he returned to the Ring, he was between 15-16 Stone.
His elusiveness in that vid was terrific. Once he got lazy etc he didn't bother and instead of exploding into crushing Combinations, he just relied on Single Power shots which were always less effective. Moreover he stopped that dip to the Left to move outside the opponent's Right Hand so Tyson could pivot on his Front left foot and punish the Floating Ribs/Intercostal muscles. Minus Rooney, his skills eroded quite quickly through laziness and overconfidence.

Tyson was a joy to watch, but he needed a team and a mentor to guide him. He mentally did not grow up until after his boxing days. He was a great student of old time fighters and picked up fouling out if he was going to lose. He made history this way with his infamous ear biting. He took his hair cut from the great Jack Dempsy as well as marrying a Hollywood starlet. Look how boxing went down hill after he left. Love him or hate him he was good for boxing.
