Tyson, Toughill Both Lose
MMA fighter Erin Toughill lost in round 3 to Laila Ali by TKO (ref. stoppage). Ali had busted Toughill's nose in the first round, and finally caught her with a solid right in the third, to which toughill couldn't respond. After 10 unanswered punches in the corner from Ali, the ref stopped the fight.
Laila Ali, who is generally recognized as the top woman in boxing, improved her record to 21-0 by winning the super middleweight fight and WBC title.
Unlike Tyson, Erin Toughill fought valliantly despite being outclassed.
Mike Tyson's fight against journeyman fighter Kevin McBride seemed to be on the right track despite several headbuts by Tyson, and was being scored as dead even until the 6th round when McBride sent him to the canvas.
ESPN.com lists the final round as:
<img src="http://www.bullshido.com/images/tysondown.jpg" align=right>Tyson comes out swinging. Again, McBride ties him up, and Tyson is warned as McBride winces while holding his left arm. Tyson receives a two-point deduction for an intentional head butt that opens a cut over McBride's left eye. The fight becomes spirited as Tyson is fighting with a deduction and is at risk of losing the round. McBride gamely stands tall. Tyson lands with a right, but McBride counters with a flurry. McBride leans on Tyson to the point where Tyson falls to the floor, but it is not scored a knockdown as the round ends.
ESPN.com scores it: McBride 9-8
Tyson quits on his stool before the seventh round begins. McBride wins by TKO.
Tyson just gave up, his spirit and enthusiasm seemingly broken. There is talk of him retiring, but we will have to see.
"I don't have the stomach for this anymore," Tyson said.
"I most likely won't fight anymore. I'm not going to disrespect the sport by losing to this calibre of fighters.
"I could have gone on but I thought I was getting beat."

I wihs i could have seen Toughill-Aliīs fight.
As I said, Ali is better at pure boxing.
I just hope Toughillīs face didnīt get too messed up, it would be such a pitty.
Anyway, looks like it was an interesting fight.
Thanks for the news.

I predicted Ali would win by KO in the 4th, so I wasn't too far out. Surprise, surprise, Ali is the best at her game.Mr Politically Correct GIJoe6186:

Not surprised Toughill lost to Ali, she not in that league as far as boxing goes. They should do it again MMA rules and see what happens :)
Would like to see Ali fight Lucia Riijker, that would be a fight!
A good friend of mine named Liz Drew is fighting Mia St.John right now on an indian reservation in NM for IFBA title belt. I trained for years with Liz in kung fu/sanda. She fought and won her first pro fight without ever been in a western boxing gym, then she swiched to boxing full-time and worked her way up. Wish i could be in NM to see the fight, wanted to go but can't afford it right now... and can't find it on cable or webcast... Hope she wins, will be a tough fight, she's the underdog.
I'll call Liz later on to see if she won *fingers crossed*
Heres the info, in case any of you guys out west can watch it or even go if youre around albequerque:
On June 12, 2005, at the Ohkay Casino, in San Juan Pueblo, New Mexico, Mia "The Knockout" St. John will be fighting Liz Drew in a 10-round title fight for the IFBA Lightweight Championship of the world! Tickets on sale now at Cross Connection Inc. Albuquerque (505) 344-4834 or Espanola (505)747-4868

Its too bad about Tyson though. He still has some ability left. But he has never been much of a strategic or technical boxer. He has always tried to out-muscle and brawl with his opponants.
Now that sort of strategy was okay 10 years ago for him. He was one of the biggest and strongest heavy weights around. But now alot of the boxers coming up can match his strength and being younger than him, it gives them an obvious advantage. But dammit he wasted, what was it ? 300million dollars US in fight money ? **** he should have quit the game years ago.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker.
