Boxing

Who loves ya, baby?
Apparently Mike Tyson's attempting to make a comeback?!? The clips going round are impressive, but dunno whether it would translate to him going however many rounds in a professional bout.

He said some time ago that he had tried to leave that world behind as much as possible since retiring. No boxing for exercise, not following current fights. He just wanted to get away from the person he was back then and was afraid that getting a whiff of that world would set something off in him and he'd be back in that zone.

It's weird that competetive fire some people have. Obviously he had in more vivid, intense, consuming sense than anybody - you could see that from how he fought.

I always liked boxing but never really got into it. You see sometimes when a match transcends strategy to become this mythological battle of wills. This teetering on the edge between intelligent duel and atavistic spectacle, chess or primal fight, it's fascinating to watch.

Yeah. And now he says,

"The gods of war have reawakened me, ignited my ego and want me to go to war again."

that is brilliant haha.

On the Joe Rogan interview he talked about being hypnotised by trainers as a 12-13 year old in order to break him into this savage animal in the ring. It's really fucked up.
