(NEW YORK CITY) – To this day there is no event I’ve been to that can compare to a Mike Tyson fight.
Prior to his bout with Razor Ruddock in March of 1991, The Public Enemy song, “Welcome to the Terrordome” played over the speakers as Tyson walked to the ring. The selection could not have been more appropriate.
We all knew that destruction and chaos was on the horizon.
And we all couldn’t wait.
Now some 22 years later Tyson continues to ignite crowds. Recently I took a walk with my old friend on Hudson Street in the shadows of SoHo.
We spoke about a variety of topics, ranging from selective memory loss, to the toughest of his three comebacks, to the last time he threw a punch.
All this as his autobiography hits store shelves on November 12th and his HBO special debuts on November 16th.
Instead of reading what he had to say, watch it.
Much like his fights from back in the day, watching Mike Tyson is still much better than reading about him.
