Ready to rumble

Once upon a time, a fierce and fearsome man sprinted from a corner of a squared structure they called a ring and demolished whatever got in his way.

Now, Mike Tyson fights on a Friday night. In Kentucky.

Friday!!!?

Kentucky!!!?

If a fight isn’t on Saturday at a major casino in Las Vegas or Atlantic City, did the fight really happen?

But here comes “Ironed” Mike Tyson, fighting out of necessity because he let $300 million slip from his fingers. He’s bankrupt and the debt collectors are making him answer the bell. If Tyson wins, he fights again, makes more money, pays off another debt, fights again, pays off another debt.

And so on and so on until Tyson is solvent. He’s basically fighting for his life, making this particular set-up, er, boxing match, intriguing beyond the “Tyson Principle,” which states anything can happen when Mike Tyson is involved so shell out $44.95 and give Don King more air time because this is the original king of reality television.

I will support Tyson in his bid for financial solvency, even if that means Sallie Mae will have to wait an extra week to cash my student loan check. (Damn, I wish I could throw hands against someone to pay off that 400-pound gorilla on my back. Any takers?)

I do this because I hope. I hope to see the most dominating heavyweight fighter of my generation return for at least one more night. Putting aside the sideshow that has become Ironed Mike, putting aside his rape conviction, just give me a few more minutes of fleeting visual glory — a crazed but controlled man mauling a cowarding palooka with Joe Glass’s jaw and Don Flamenco’s IQ and Piston Honda’s weak abdomen.

Danny Williams is no Soda Popinski or even Mr. Sandman. His name is about as fearsome as an eclair with sprinkles. Geez, this palooka even admits to crying in his dressing room before fights.

And I don’t care how inept his resume and his skills are. Just get in the ring and give the millions watching around the world what they want: Iron Mike Tyson.

    Learn the Virtues of Perseverance
    by: refinancing mortgage loan debt consolidation

    To succeed, you need to have dreams
    and aspirations. Be honest with
    yourself as to what you want out of
    life and what you want to give of
    your life. Allow your mind to dream
    and think big.

    To reach success, you have to persevere.
    Even Thomas Edison had to learn this.
    When he was creating the incandescent
    light bulb, it took him more than 10,000
    times to get it right. Keep striving
    even when it becomes challenging.

    Debt reduction can be done in many ways. A recent method being used is to buy some debt reduction software. You can purchase debt reduction software online or at a computer software store. The software usually comes with a debt reduction calculator to help you decipher how quickly your debt will be paid off in accordance to your monthly balance payments. Similarly, there are also debt reduction books you can purchase at your local bookstore. The best route for help with debt reduction is to go to see a credit counseller or a debt reduction counseller.
