Tyson Quotes

"There are very few new things in this world, very few. Thats why people that are young, if theyre smart, try to profit from the experience of an older guy so they wont have to go through all the pain and suffering. But a certain amount of pain and suffer is good, because it makes a person think theyve learned."

Mike Tyson News: Mike Tyson attends the K-1 World Grand Prix in Honolulu

Posted on Saturday, July 30, 2005 @ 16:50:22 UTC by tysonian

As rumoured by local media and Japanese reports Mike Tyson attended the K-1 World Grand Prix in Honolulu July 29.

Mike Tyson (L) of the U.S. congratulates Musashi (R) of Japan after he defeated Rickard Nordstrand of Sweden at the K-1 World Grand Prix in Honolulu July 29, 2005. The event consists of martial arts matches with fighters from Brazil, Japan, Canada, Sweden and the U.S., including a battle between former Sumo Grand Champion Akebono and Choi Hong-man of South Korea.

After his performance Choi motioned to Mike Tyson, who was sitting ringside, and seemed to call out the former boxing heavyweight champion. Tyson has been rumored to be on the verge of signing a deal with K-1.

"The crowd was too loud, so I didn't hear what he said," Choi said after calling Tyson out in the ring. "Since he came all the way to Hawaii for K-1, I thought if I have a chance to fight him I'd be happy."

In the past Mike Tyson often signed contracts with K-1 to promote or commentate. His last display in the K-1 world was a similar act as he was challenged by Bob Sapp when Tyson came in to congratulate him.
