It sounds like a carnival pitch to me.maybe mike does have a top ten fighter in the cuban.If he hits as hard as they say!,well that in and of it self is promotional material.But to say what mike says of beating the current champs,is all hype right now and probably for ever.Get him busy! He needs a Hopkins victim to fight before hailing him so deserving.

Kovalev would knock him out along with Stevenson and Hopkins………..

Ward said that Kovalev is too big for him and Ward refused to answer Stevenson’s challenge………….

I can beat Tyson.

hmmm, they’re alike in many ways too. mike’s in better shape than the other 2 atg’s were at his age. even though he’s been knocked out 5 times and was hit with much harder punches by bigger stronger men.

mike trained harder, was physically stronger, and absorbed more punishment with less damage than ali or louis

all three chased tail like there’s no tomorrow. mike did the best there too. he also had the most success of the 3 as a businessman and promoter. for me, a prime tyson runs over ali like an express train, like he did larry holmes, and overpowers louis with his size and strength like he did michael spinks.

Mike Tyson is one of a kind, just like Ali and Joe Louis.

In this case it’s just hot air being thrown out there…

Nobody takes the words seriously or believes Mike really said them or believes them… He may have signed off on the headline and story… “Yeah you can use that.”

It’s business… You need a headline that draws… There would be 2 comments on this article if it wasn’t Mike Tyson saying it — and if it wasn’t provocative.

Famous promoter quote, “We got no publicity. These bums couldn’t get arrested.”

Mike Tyson promotion is a more legit and better promotion company then Floyd’s TMT

Nice logo for Iron Mike Productions. And I like the differentiation of “productions” rather than promotions.

Savigne is a big hitter but he’s been knocked out before… His defense is lacking and his chin is terrible.

He’s the type of fighter Kovalev reserves those huge ear-to-ear grins for.. He wasn’t smiling as large before his Cedric Agnew fight as he was before his Sillakh fight.. Agnew had never been knocked out before.. But I’m sure he enjoyed finishing the Cedric with that jab to the liver.

More painful that way.

@MNboxingFAN – Sean ………………………………………

he won’t be getting hurt by Sevigne.

Sevigne like most Cuban Ams turned pro, is a natural Cper and will be be on the backfoot the entire fight. Lacy is a hooker who looks to counter with it more than lead with it anymore.
im sure Sevigne will box his ears off, but it’ll be potshotting to a RTD or a ref stoppage if it doesnt go the distance. Lacy has a very solid beard, even at LHW.

Hand picked? Lacy sounds hand picked to me. He’s never been the same since his shoulder surgery and had lost the power is his left hook even at middleweight. Now we’re to believe he’s supposed to be a threat at light heavyweight? Lacy should be retired in all honesty. I just hope Jeff doesn’t get hurt.

You’ll have to find a friend to pat that middle part of your back that you can’t reach.

Can someone clarify for me. Is’nt Tyson just being used as a figurehead to his promotional company. I was under the impression that it is a partnership where he simply provides the name and publicity for the company and he is not involved in the business or the money investment of the company.

Tyson seems to be a survivor and I think he will keep on promoting. Will he make it like Golden Boy, Top Rank or other good promotional outfits? Who knows, only time will tell. He has a lot of connections though.

I love Mike-who doesn’t-but he’s going nowhere as a promoter, like many other famous ex-fighters before him, he’ll struggle here & there for a few months & then he’ll go TF away for good . That’s what makes Oscar DeLa Hoya so special; he was a success from the very beginning. Pre-destination might be true after all…

GREAT observation. You are the the MOST INTELLIGENT fight prophet EVER born!!!

Posted July 3, 2014 10:10 pm 


Boxtradamus

Mike must be in need of money SO he’s trying to get his guys the Biggest money Fights available as QUICKLY as possible which isn’t TOO smart because IF your guy is genuinely as GOOD as you SAY he IS he will make even MORE money after he builds UP a following. At least get your guy on HBO or Showtime First. Even Friday Night Fights.

Hey Ray / F/Aff what’s cooking boys ? Mikes just doing his job here but knocking over poor old Jeff Lacy ain’t going to get him anywhere near the level he needs to be fighting at if he’s going beast hunting . Regards Josey Wales

This facially tattooed felon is funny.

Kovalev should go and rip the head off one of his pigeons.

Turkish boxing fan

A russian boxer called Gaydarbek Gaybarbekow ko’d Lacy and won gold medal in 2000 olympics. Also he defeated GGG and won gold medal in 2004 olympics. Sometimes I believe professional boxing is overrated. And vintage American boxers couldn’t dominate professional boxing if communists such as Cuba and Russia were also in it in those times.

The headline is very misleading , nowhere in this article does Tyson say kovalev and Stevenson should stop avoiding my fighter.

Posted July 3, 2014 4:27 pm

Is it possible to duck a fighter if you never heard of them ? Mikes just doing his job that’s all folks.

Its Tyson’s job now to say these things-he’s in full promoter mode

Posted July 3, 2014 1:54 pm 


chitownfightfan

Tyson putting together a solid card.

However, to get Stevensons Kovalevs or BHops, even Brahmers attention he’s gonna need a couple better wins than Hall and Lacy.

Not saying their names are big enough, just not high profile enough….

Also, sporting a 12-1 record isnt exactly crying out to be granted the shot. Activity would be key for Savigne……after he takes out Lacy, he should look to get right back in the ring with a couple higher level Euro/Eastern Block names……call out Lucian Bute, Jean Pascal, Shumenov, Murat or Chad Dawson and he might
garner some attn from the titlists at LHW.

Or he can go the route of can crushing…..not a bad thing if your’e KOing 6 a yr…..let him run thru 5 cans, then go for Bute or Murat…..get that win with a record of 18-1 and he’ll get the title shot.
