MIKE TYSON V ANDREW GOLOTA 2000

Tyson trainer: Tommy Brooks ”The Foul Pole” Golota famously hit Riddick Bowe low several times to the point where he appeared to be aiming combinations at Bowes penis! He has bitten and even almost KO’d another with headbutts! He was to be Tysons opponent in october of 2000 in detroit, USA. Despite the fights with Bowe, Golota was actually a genuin prospect in the heavyweight division at the time. Although disqualified in the Bowe fights, Golota was winning both contests on points – by a long way. Had he kept his cool, he would have beaten “big daddy” bowe twice, somthing no other fighter can claim,
It was a clean fight which suprised a good deal many people although at one point Golota appeared to be fighting in his own corner.
The fight lasted only 2 rounds afterGolota wouldnt come out for round 3. He had wanted to quit at the end of round one but was persuaded otherwise by trainer Al Certo. Tyson knocked down Golota in round one with 12 seconds left with a huge right hand.
Golota had failed to continue fighting is simply because he was hurt. After the fight Golota was hospitalized in intensive care for a couple of days. He had broke his cheekbone and had concussion as a result of the fight with Tyson.
Mikes and his speed, fast movement and head bobbing appeared to be with him again. Tyson looked somthing like the undestrucable force of the 80’s on this night.

MIKE TYSON V BRUCE SELDON 1996

The fight against Bruce Seldon was the 46th of Tyson’s career and fourth since his comeback. Mike had already got the WBC belt by beating Bruno in 3 & now took WBA champion Bruce Seldon. Though Seldon was a champion he was a 20-1 underdog. He earned his biggest purse 5$ million while Tyson got 35$ million. The fight took place in Las Vegas on September 7th 96.
A one-sided contest with Tyson constantly chasing Bruce Seldon. Referee Richard Steele stopped the fight after 109 seconds in round one when Seldon went down for the second time.
Tyson now owned the WBC and WBA belts.

MIKE TYSON V EVANDER HOLYFIELD 1996

The fight Holyfield vs Tyson should have already taken place in 1990 respectively 1991. The 90 date fell through because the Buster Douglas accident happened and the 91 clash couldn’t take place because Mike hurt his hip during a work-out. Tyson complained that Evander used headbutts which should become an important element in their 2nd clashhame for a former two times heavyweight champion, but when the public saw how confident Evander was the odds went down to 6-1 still in favour of Mike.

Holyfield had Tyson down in the sixth as well as in the tenth. Tyson fought on bravely but in the 11th round referee Mitch Halperin stopped the contest.

Tyson congratulated Holyfield to his victory.

Tyson had underestimated Holyfield, he thought that his would be a short night but when Holyfield did not go down within the first five rounds Tyson ran out of ideas, that simply did not belong to Tyson’s fight plan.

Contact Mike?

MessageAuthor
Posted: Sun Aug 15, 2004 11:08 pm   Tyson’s problems are all in his head (mind)… he still has skill, speed and power but he is not in control of what makes all of that work together… his mind.

After watching his last fight (and following his career), he is a classic case of someone who needs to re-tool and work on his state of mind as much or more than his boxing skills.

Within the next couple of days I will be overnighting a letter to Freddie Roach and Shelley Finkel outlining a strategy to get Tyson back on the right track before age truly does catch up to him and he won’t be able to go out on a high note.

I’d also like to be able to send him the same information… amazing how many people who are supposed to have an athlete’s “best interest in mind” may not pass on the information they really need!!! (many times to protect their own interests). If anyone has information on how to directly contact Mike I would be very interested in your response. I can be contacted at drmike@mikecioppa.com or at 877-866-3021.

I hold a PhD in neuro-psychology and am a noted speaker and consultant in the field.

To me the cure is obvious… it’s not without some effort, but none the less extremely effective and I’m convinced Tyson could once again be the world champion, especially given the mediocre heavyweights he would need to face.

Thanks for any help that can be given.

He’s just another snake oil salesman trying to peddle his suspect goods. Mike doesn’t need creeps like this trying to make a buck off him – from what I can tell Mike is doing just fine, and has found himself recently. Dr Cioppa keep your amateur pyschology to yourself.

Posted: Tue Aug 17, 2004 1:55 pm   I agree. Just because some guy holds a PhD, it doesn’t mean they’re suddenly a boxing strategist. It’s pretty clear to me that Mike and Freddie Roach know what the *Censor* they’re doing. They don’t need to refer to a text book or something. They have it covered, but thanks professor.   infie

Posted: Thu Aug 19, 2004 1:39 pm   Its not exactly the same Mike has fallen from his prime. He might be able to get most of it back but he is not in the middle of it.

Secondly he may send the letter if he wishes and myabe it will help maybe it will get thrown away. Most likely no one would ever know.

This seems to me like its a bunch of name calling and childish things. If you dont have the address or dont have a reasonable reply then its simple DON’T.

Posted: Thu Aug 19, 2004 7:11 pm   maybe dr mike is just trying to help but he looks like he might be after a bit of money go to his website and you will see what i mean
well all i can say iis i think Mike Tyson can do it by himself and doesent need to rely on anybody else he has to sort his own problems out and i think he has done that when he walked to the ring against williams he looked calm and ready to kick ass and he did so until the knee injury. Tyson will be back

Tyson selects Williams for comeback fight

Danny Williams will fly to New York on Sunday to put his name on a contract for a fight against Mike Tyson that will give the former British heavyweight champion from Brixton a large chunk of his pension.

Williams was selected from a long list of hopefuls for the chance to meet Tyson in Louisville, Kentucky, on 30 July, in a fight that he is expected to lose. In many ways, however, it is a fight in which he has absolutely nothing to lose.

There are still some contractual difficulties, but that is not unusual with Tyson and the fight is understood to be a done deal. Williams and Tyson are expected to meet on Tuesday to shake hands.

For Tyson it will be the 29th time that he has received in excess of $1m (£547,000) for a fight, but for Williams it will be the first time that he has been paid in excess of £200,000 for walking into the ring.

Williams, like Tyson, has his critics and during a career that started nine years ago he is the first to admit that he has not reached the level that his talent warrants.

Tyson, meanwhile, has admitted that after nearly 20 years at the top he has squandered over £164m, but now believes he has turned the corner and is ready to resume the career that he once had.

Finkel Speaks About Details On Tyson Comeback: McBride and Mesi fights close

Shelly Finkel, the adviser of Mike Tyson, has said that Tyson will box and not fight mixed martial arts in the K-1 promotion. Tyson’s opponent is slated to be Kevin McBride, a heavyweight out of Ireland, the fight would take place around July 31 in the United States.

Finkel confirmed that Tyson has reunited with trainer Freddie Roach and Roach will train Tyson for the McBride bout. Roach said he will set up training camp in Phoenix for Tyson on May 10.

“If he fought the two fights, a fight against Lamon Brewster or Klitschko will be right there for him. Of course he has to buckle down and get back into it.” said Roach.

Finkel also said that Tyson and Joe Mesi could meet up by the end of the year in Madison Square Garden.

“It’s definitely going to happen,” said Finkel

Finkel also said that regardless of the 100 million dollar lawsuits that Tyson and King have against eachother, a reunion with Don King was not out of the question.

“Under the right circumstances, I’m open to discussing it. I’ve never said that we wouldn’t talk to him (Don King).” said Finkel

More quotes available in the extended section of this post (click ‘Read More‘ below).

Tyson back in picture
May fight Mesi on Garden card

Mike Tyson sits ringside at Garden last week. He may fight there by year’s end.

Negotiations for a bout between former
heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and contender Joe Mesi have heated up
to the point that Shelly Finkel, Tyson’s adviser, can almost see them
in the ring at Madison Square Garden in November or December.

“It’s definitely going to happen,” Finkel said yesterday. “It’s going to be in New York.”

The two sides are still discussing money, but it is a mutually
beneficial bout for both Mesi and Tyson. Mesi wants to be taken
seriously as a title contender and Tyson wants to regain the world
title. In the current heavyweight climate it won’t take long for Tyson
to get in the title mix.

Tyson’s appetite for the title must have been whetted when he watched
John Ruiz beat Fres Oquendo to retain the WBA crown and saw Chris Byrd
fight to a draw against Andrew Golota to retain the IBF title at the
Garden this past weekend.

It was the second straight heavyweight title card that Tyson attended.
The week before the Garden card, he saw Lamon Brewster beat Wladimir
Klitschko for the WBO title in Las Vegas. Both cards were promoted by
Don King, fueling speculation that Tyson might re-up with the promoter.
During the post-fight press conference at the Garden, King looked at
Tyson and said, “We’re waiting for you.”

“Anything is possible,” Finkel said when asked if Tyson would consider signing a promotional deal with King.

“Under the right circumstances, I’m open to discussing it. I’ve never said that we wouldn’t talk to him.”

Those circumstances would be a settlement of the $100 million lawsuit
that Tyson has filed against King for breach of contract. Tyson alleges
that King stole millions from him when he was promoting him from
1987-98. King is countersuing Tyson for $100 million.

King has control of three of the four major heavyweight titles. But
Finkel said that Tyson didn’t need King’s promotional might to make a
big fight, because he can still meet guys like Mesi and Roy Jones Jr.
and earn millions.

Tyson recently signed a lucrative promotional agreement with K-1, the
Japanese mixed martial arts company. Finkel said it is a one-fight
deal, and that Tyson will box and not fight mixed martial arts. Tyson
is tentatively set to box an Irish heavyweight named Kevin McBride
sometime in July on a K-1 show somewhere in the U.S.

Freddie Roach, who trained Tyson for his last bout against Clifford
Etienne in Memphis on Feb. 22, 2003, will train Tyson for the McBride
bout. Roach said he will set up training camp in Phoenix for Tyson on
May 10.

Roach believes that the 36-year-old Tyson could be back in the heavyweight title picture with victories over McBride and Mesi.

“With the heavyweight division the way it is now, he can make some
noise,” Roach said. “We’ll see if he’s got the discipline to do what it
takes.

“If he fought the two fights, a fight against Lamon Brewster or
(Vitali) Klitschko will be right there for him. Of course he has to
buckle down and get back into it.”
