Default Mike Tyson, a wonderful man...

Reuters

HAVANA -- Boxer Mike Tyson lost his temper Tuesday with journalists in Cuba, shouting and tossing crystal balls at them, and lightly hitting one cameraman on the head during a brief fracas in a Havana hotel, witnesses said.

Tyson, on a tourism trip to the Caribbean island, looked furious to see five journalists waiting for him when he emerged from a lift in one of Havana's premier sea-front hotels.

The American heavyweight fighter, wearing jeans but no top, raised his fists in a threatening gesture and yelled insults, according to witnesses and Reuters journalists at the scene.

Tyson, 35, also picked up three crystal balls from a decoration at the hotel lobby's reception, which smashed on the floor after he threw them at the journalists, and lightly hit a Reuters cameraman twice on the back of the head.

"He just went crazy," said the cameraman, Felipe Borrego. "I was planning to ask him for an interview, but he never let me speak, he just turned on us."

Cuban staff at the hotel said Tyson had appeared to become steadily more irritated with unwelcome attention from tourists and others since his arrival Monday night.

porky pig,
What a acrimonious post, and for no particular reason that I can decipher. We usually see in others what we are ourselves.....are you having an identity crisis??

I think it's Porky, and not Mike Tyson, that needs to be put in a cage and left there.

Hey Oink Boy,

I treat and respect people who do the same to me and you're not one of them, so f'off. Who cares how I come off to you or anyone else for that matter. I post stories that I find interesting, thanks for asking.

If you like coming on and spouting off on this or any other board, then that's your choice, I just refuse to delve into that arena. You can call or say what you want to or about me, I could careless but it's not what I'm about.

Give a sh&t about yourself not me, you'll live better that way.

LC

I could be wrong, but Porky writes more like SG, than btj. I also doubt if Porky was btj, he would put in his profile, he is from Boston.

porky,
Didn't you parents also teach you that some things are best left unsaid? Making a nasty post about the thread's author is not necessary. If you don't like the topic, press on to the next thread. There are plenty here to read that are "on topic".

Hey LC!!!
ur pal guido here! even i will not try to defend tyson here! but i will say this...he paid a rather stiff price for his rape conviction! wasnt it 3-5 yrs or so in prison? as i recall, the woman who claimed rape, was not physically injured, altho that does not rule out that it may indeed have still been rape! i would say that a young woman who went willingly to Tyson's hotel room at 2am with the intention of not having sex, walked out of there lucky to have no injuries! i dont think most authorities would have even prosecuted a case like this unless they had a famous defendant! another case of celebrities/star athletes actually getting reverse preferential treatment in our society!

pmj, though they both are uncommonly ignorant, my money is on *this* particular ignoramus being beantown jim.
Mainly because in another thread he used the expression "pissa". Pissa is a Boston thang..

Guido, Tyson is more of an animal than a human being. Society would be better off if he were permanently put behind bars. He's not even a manly man. As a youth, his gig was robbing little old ladies. His squeaky, girlie voice is laughable, and only a sick coward resorts to chomping on an opponent's ears because he is losing a fight.

Reno;
while i agree with everything u say, my point is that if a woman goes with u to ur hotel room at 0200 and has sex with u and then leaves on her own accord without any physical injuries, and then goes to the police alleging rape against u, the vast majority of jurisdictions will throw out the charges! sorry Reno, ur just not famous enuf! cept in MW!!!! we'd convict u in a heartbeat! LOL Happy New Year

I don't know,

I'm not here to defend porky - in fact, this post isn't even about porky, I actually have a long-overdue question for Louis - why are you always scouring the news-wire for dirt on pro athletes?

Everytime some ball-player gets caught with a joint or a co-ed cheerleader you start beating the "oh my god, what an idiot" drum like some sort of born-again at a Bush/Qualye convention.

Now before you get all humpty about "role models" or "important social issues" etc., or otherwise try to paint me as some sort of apologist for wife-beaters, let me say that I agree with you that all crimes of violence are wrong.

But its not about that for you - I think you just resent success and its trappings and your posts amount to nothing more than a transparent display of the same.

Swampy,
Have wondered the same myself for some time- I've never seen a soap box rise from such cheap seats. Just my two cents.

Unfortunately pro athletes give Louis an unending supply of things to post. I can't believe some of their actions

For the people who I've pi$$ed off by posting unrelated gambling topics, my apoligies to all.

Hopefully I'll be able to refrain from posting crap like this again. I find some stories amusing (spousal abuse is not), so I post and I'm wrong for doing so.

P.S. Swamphog, me being a born again Christian I am not but I do understand where you coming from, like I alluded to before, sorry, it won't happen again.
