Of course Mike Tyson wrote a song about LeBron James (Video)

Mike Tyson, who hasn’t boxed since losing to Kevin McBride in 2005, is still relevant and still hilarious. Tyson showed off his singing skills on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday night by performing his song power ballad about LeBron James. All bets are that Tyson wrote the piece himself and if he didn’t, Jimmy Kimmel and his writers are pure geniuses to dish off the line “LeBron James is great, he makes Cleveland irate” to someone with probable brain damage. At least it’s nice to see the former heavyweight champ doing something constructive with his time that doesn’t involve more pigeons or face tattoos.

Wife says Mike Tyson lost a tooth after being headbutted by his tiger

Mike Tyson famously had a gold tooth front and center on his grill that’s since been replaced by a standard, boring white tooth. The story of how Tyson lost the tooth several years ago is as crazy as Tyson himself.

Kiki Tyson, Mike’s wife, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that her husband lost the tooth “when his tiger, Kenya, headbutted him.”

It’s unclear if Tyson got a gold tooth replacement after having his original tooth knocked out by the tiger, or if his gold tooth was knocked out by the tiger, and that’s why he has a white tooth now.

Kiki also told the Review-Journal that her husband had some dental work done about a year ago to close his notable gap. Tyson went back to the gap-tooth look after realizing it was his signature. Smart move by Tyson. You take away your signature gap, you can no longer get awesome birthday surprises like this one.

Mike Tyson: Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. should be in jail for not fighting each other

Everyone wants to see Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao square off in the ring, but with each passing day it becomes less likely that it will ever happen. A variety of excuses like a lack of pay-per-view money or an unwillingness to split the fight money 50-50 have been used by both fighters. For boxing fans, the back-and-forth is one of the most frustrating dynamics in the history of the sport. Mike Tyson even believes it has been so annoying that they should be thrown in jail for it.

“Listen if I was President I would throw (Pacquiao and Mayweather) in jail if they didn’t fight,” Tyson said during an interview with WXYT in Detroit. “I’d have them arrested. You can’t do that but that’s what I would try to do. I’d be like ‘these guys need to get locked up and find a new profession until they get their heads clear.’”

For once, I actually almost agree with Mike — aside from the jail part of course. The reasons these two have come up with to not fight one another are embarrassing. The entire boxing world wants it to happen, yet Pacquiao and Mayweather continue to annoy all of us by talking trash and avoiding the issue.

On a completely separate note, Tyson was also asked if plans were being discussed to make a Hangover 3 movie: “I was told there was one and I would like to participate in it but we will see what happens guys.” From the things I have heard about the second one, they should just leave the legend alone.

Mike Tyson curses during MSG interview (Video)

Mike Tyson really just can’t help himself sometimes. The former boxer is heavily medicated these days and that is supposed to make him safe for interviews. Just one thing: beware if you’re interviewing him live, because he might get you in trouble with the FCC. Not only does Tyson get really raunchy sometimes, but he’s also been known to cuss like he did Wednesday. Asked by MSG’s Jill Martin what his dumbest purchase was, he said “Anything I ever had. Anything I’ve ever had was dumb. Dumb s***.”

At least Tyson knows he screwed up because he immediately slapped his head. It’s OK Mike — this is the sort of thing we’ve come to expect from you.

Radio Host Dino Costa Says Mike Tyson Is Dead … Mike Tyson Says Not so Fast, My Friend!

A knucklehead sports radio host for Mad Dog radio on Sirius/XM named Dino Costa shared a rumor on Twitter Tuesday night saying Mike Tyson had died in a car crash. Naturally the rumor began circulating pretty quickly before Tyson (or the ghost updating his Twitter account) countered the news saying “My friend called to see if I’m ok. There is a rumor I was in an accident. Thankfully I am doing well.”

Here’s what Costa tweeted to start the mess:

Well buddy, if you’re stressing this has not been confirmed, then don’t throw it out there. That’s pretty simple. You don’t mess around when it comes to proclaiming someone’s death.

Now here’s the worst part. Costa, who undeniably was trying to break some news, went on to blame the rumor on the person who called into his radio station.

Mike Tyson Doesn’t Think Glen Rice Banged Sarah Palin Hard Enough

Just when you thought all aspects of the Sarah Palin-Glen Rice love story had been explored, we forget that Mike Tyson had yet to weigh in. Iron Mike did just that as a guest on Gridlock KWWN Espn Radio 1100/98.9FM with Paul Howard, Mitch Moss, and Seat Williams Thursday.

Audio from the interview is posted below, as well as Tyson’s best comments. We typically keep things fairly PG-13 here at LBS, but this interview definitely would earn us an R-rating at the least. Mike Tyson appeared to be living out his own sexual fantasies envisioning Glen Rice and Sarah Palin together. This dude was getting really excited.

Mike Tyson: James Toney Looked Horrible, Had No Respect

James Toney got destroyed by Randy Couture in his MMA debut at UFC 118 last month. Toney was unprepared to fight in the Octagon and was done as soon as he was taken down to the ground. This fact was evident to anyone watching, including Iron Mike Tyson himself.

Tyson, who appeared on The Ultimate Fighter, told the Canadian Press “You have to admit, Toney looked horrible. He looked slow. He didn’t look like a seasoned, conditioned athlete. You only had to look at his body structure. No way, Toney didn’t get ready to fight a real, professional athlete like Randy is. It was ridiculous. He had no respect for Randy.”

Tyson, ever the voice of sanity, said a boxer could succeed in MMA but would have to learn to wrestle and grapple first. He’s exactly right. Many MMA fighters have boxing backgrounds and all have to learn how to box. But that’s the thing — boxing is just one aspect of fighting in mixed martial arts. Without a wrestling and grappling background, you’re not going to do well in a fight.

Leave it to Tyson to say something that makes sense. Now if he says Toney should retire altogether, he’d be making even more sense.
