Mike Tyson fight

Anybody watch it? Do you think it was rigged? Lots of money for 19 seconds and not as interesting as when he bit the guy's earlobe off.

Hmmmm - I just got hit in the side of the head by Mike Tyson - hard enough to take me out of the fight - put I'll remember to carefully remove my mouth piece once I hit the floor.

As scripted as professional wrestling......

Its all gotta be rigged. The fall itself looked fake and he laid there for the count, then casually got up.

I dont know, Mike was fairly pissed off about the whole thing. If it was rigged, it didnt look like he knew about it. He seemed excessively angry about the lack of a fight in the post-fight interviews.

On another note, he said that he does 2500 situps a day!! Holy crap, that's a lot. I thought me doing a little over a hundred a day was good...obviously I was wrong.

Which brings us to the next question - would you get the holy living hell punched out of you and get $1m even if you lost (like Etienne did)?

I dont know if $1mil would be enough to be on the recieving end of a Tyson punch....but I'm a girl and a fairly large wuss ...But $1mil.....its a fair slab of cash isn't it?....

How long would 2500 situps take a day? Honestly, thats gotta eat into the man's day quite a bit!

Well considering he's a professional athlete, I imagine all he does is work out for the majority of the day regardless. I imagine you could do that many in an hour or so. I mean, you'd be doing nothing but situps, right?
