About Mike Tyson

Iron Mike fought his first fight in 15 years last weekend, stoned as a coot but right on form. The 54 year old went 8 rounds with 51-year old Ray Jones Jr in a televised exhibition bout. Although there were no knock-out blow and it was declared a draw, USA Today put him ahead 78-74 on points. Tyson said he smoked before and after the bout. In fact he smokes all the time: “Listen, I can’t stop smoking, I smoked during fights. I just have to smoke, I’m sorry. I’m a smoker. … I smoke every day. It’s just who I am. It has no effect on me from a negative standpoint. It’s just what I do and how I am and how I’m going to die. There’s no explanation. There’s no beginning; there’s no end”.
