Mike Tyson: Crazy, Funny and Downright Scary Quotes
Retired boxer Michael Gerard Tyson, otherwise known as "Mike" Tyson (or "Iron" Mike), was the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and still remains the youngest man to ever to become the World Heavyheight Champion. But it may just be Tyson's controversial behavior inside and outside the ring that general population will remember him best for. Often referred to as "The Baddest Man on the Planet," it's likely that this was more than just a nickname and many fighters are rumored to have said that they were too intimidated to hit him. He may be well past his prime and those years may be well behind him but read some of these past quotes and see why we (and maybe some of those fighters) still wouldn't want to get on his bad side.
"I just want to conquer people and their souls."
"I have some pain I'm going to have for the rest of my life. So every now and then I kick your f*cking ass."
"I'm on the Zoloft to keep from killing y'all."
On Lennox Lewis:
Lennox Lewis, I'm coming for you man. My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!
"My main objective is to be professional but to kill him."
"I want to rip out his heart and feed it to him. I want to kill people. I want to rip their stomachs out and eat their children."
"I'm the most brutal and ruthless conquerer there has ever been."
On Razor Ruddock:
"You're sweet. I'm going to make sure you kiss me good with those big lips. I'm gonna make you my girlfriend."
On Tyrell Biggs:
"He was screaming like my wife."
"I paid a worker at New York's zoo to re-open it just for me and Robin (his wife). When we got to the gorilla cage there was 1 big Silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas. They were so powerful but their eyes were like an innocent infant. I offered the attendant $10,000 to open the cage and let smash that silverback's snotbox! He declined."
"I try to catch [other boxers] on the tip of the nose, because i try to pust the bone into the brain."
"I wish one of you guys (reporters) had kids so I could kick them in the f*cking head or something, or stomp on their testicles so you can feel my pain. Cuz thats the pain I have waking up everyday."
"They called me a 'rapist' and a 'recluse.' I'm not a recluse."
And finally to conclude, here is what he said to a reporter in the crowd who made a comment to him that he did not like:
"White boy, f*ggot, you can't touch me you're not man enough, I eat your ass all alive, you bitch, can't anybody in here f*ck with this, this is the ultimate. F*ck you, you hoe! Come say it to my face, you bitch. Come on you bitch, you're a scared coward, you're not man enough to f*ck with me, you can't last two minutes in my world bitch. (At this point the reporter backs away deeper into the crowd) Look you scared now, you hoe. Scared like a little cracker bitch. Scared of the real man! I'll f*ck you till you love me."
After reading that last quote it becomes easy to see why the man backed away. Having a 115 Kg heavyweight champion yelling that he will force himself romantically on you can be pretty intimidating. Still, reading this as a neutral third party we must admit we find it pretty amusing and at least if he is ever forgotten for his legendary fighting skill we think it is safe to say he will at least be remembered for his theatrics.
