Mike Tyson News: Tyson's former promotor Don King speaks on Tyson-McBride

Posted on Saturday, June 25, 2005 @ 10:36:17 UTC by tysonian

Mike Tyson's former promoter, Don King, whom Tyson sued for $100 million before settling out of court for $14 million, said he was ''sickened" by the sight of the former heavyweight champion quitting on his stool against Dorchester resident Kevin McBride two weeks ago. ''I cried, man," King said. ''They took an asset worth millions and left it bankrupt of hope and aspiration. They tried to turn him into a gentleman. He ain't never going to be no gentleman and be a fighter. His whole M.O. was ferocity." King also claimed Tyson's manager, Shelly Finkel, failed to act in Tyson's best interest when he brought him back against the 6-foot-6-inch McBride. ''Why give him that kind of size?" King thundered. ''The guy can't beat those big guys. The guy always had trouble against those kind of guys."
