    Just read an article staing that Mike Tyson is "supposedly" back in intense training and looking to be back shape by the end of the year. What he is training for is not known, however the pres of EliteXC is saying that he will do whatever it takes to get Tyson to sign...

    Imagine a fight between Tyson and kimbo:crazy:!!

    that would indeed be a good fight. Tyson is pretty quick, but if kimbo catches him with a left hook it can be lights out for Mike........JMHO

    Hello. I'm new here and I just have to say...FISHING & MMA in one serving? What could be better? HUGE fight fan. :big_smile:

    As for Tyson vs. Kimbo, I guess it depends on whether or not you can bite an ear off with a mouthpiece in. :wink:

    1st off Welcome Alex!
    So does this mean that they are wanting to put the two together or just sign Tyson. I personally think that the promoters are not ready for Kimbo to loose. After the last couple of "Elite XC fights" I vowed to never watch it again. I'm sure that there are a lot of fighters regretting signing with them. What a circus act!!!

    In all reality you know that Kimbo would be dumb enough to stand up and bang with Tyson, "granted Kimbo can bang" but he has never felt power that Tyson posseses, where as Tyson has taken countless harder shots than Kimbo can throw through his whole career..........

    Kimbo better take this one to the ground if it were to happen

    I have no interest in watching another tyson fight................he is used up and too far behind in his technique.

    Thats been a huge rumor for the better part of this year, i dont see mike fighting anymore, besides i'd put my money on kimbo now. Back in the day when mike was on top i'd have to support him, but not now, he needs to stay in retirement.

    I cant resist saying this. Mike Tyson is my neighbor. Another member posted a John Walsh site and I checked it. It was for offenders and his mug shot was on it. He live about 20 houses away from me. I aint Skeered tho, I got some bear spray.

    Supposedly the reasoning behind his training is shrouded in secrecy...just a marketing ploy if you ask me...though a pretty smart one. I personally dont think that we'd get to see Kimbo and Mike go at it. I dont think that Mike would make it past a good MMA fighter with good take down skill anyhow.

    We're talking about Elite XC here. Kimbo vs Tyson could happen....
    I can hear the ring leader now "Ladies and Gentleman, If you would direct your attention to the center ring...":smile2:

    Tyson may be training for going back to prison. Ive seen where his name has come up in murder conspiracy charges as putting up the money to have someone killed. Wouldnt surprise my but I dont necessarily believe the thugs accusing him either.

    now would this fight be MMA or boxing?

    give kimbo another year to train and he could definatly take tyson MMA

    now boxing is a different story, id watch but tyson would probably take it

    im sure some or most will disagree, but...

    i think they are both a big joke. just a marketing ploy. whats next mr.t?

    kimbo has no skills whatso-ever. he is strong enough, and mean enough, but his skill level is ridiculously low. tyson, is strong enough, and mean enough, but does he have ANY endurance at all? not to mention his mental state. how confident can he be at this point?

    i would gladly watch them beat the heck out of each other. who would be the winner? kimbo-barely... and mostly because he has more career longevity in front of him than iron mike. so he could bring in more viewers longer... what a joke.

    Well, kimbo is a great street brawler, not alot of mma skills at all, he has a good strong chin and has heavy hands and good speed, he dosent have much endurance though. I could see him knocking out mike or possibly submitting hit with a choke.

    Mike on the other hand, currently is extreamly out of shape, he looks to be 275+ and lazy. Supposedly there are rumors of him training but nobody can comfirm that yet. Mike has the skills to stand up and fight kimbo and could possibly really give kimbo a good beating in a straight stand up fight. Mike has plenty of punching power, i highly doubt his endurance is up to par anymore though. So i could see him easily knocking out kimbo, no chance for a submission attempt from mike, he has no known martial arts backround.

    Personally i think its all a big rumor for now till i see a prefight interview with them both.
