Don King : So you see, even in the fourth grade our hero knew that he would become the most respected, inspected, “erspected”, suspected, boxing promoter in the history of the galaxy But enough about me
Last weeks battle between Iron Mike Tyson and Evander Hollyfield was a titantic torment. If anyone could have predicted the magnitude of this magnificent marvel of pugilistic pomposity he would have become a rich man. With the smoke cleared, Evander was the commander, for the moment, but Iron Mike Tyson, the greatest champion in the history of athletic competition has a little something to say about that. So get on up here Mike! All right!
Mike Tyson : Thanks Don.. I just want to say to Evander Hollyfield, that you fought a great fight and the depth of what you hit me, was astoundingly ludicrous.
Don King : Mike, your words are elementally elegant, and elevatingly eloquent! But dont you have a challenge for mister Hollyfield.
Mike Tyson : My only challenge, is to not start crying, when I think about his huge fist banging in into my head. You know what Im sayin you know what I mean? Congratulations Evander, youre truly a supreme fighter and again I wanna thank you for beating the living daylights out of me. Thank you.
Don King : Mike missed the words: “Im like the tall grass from which the deadly cobra STRIKES!” Underneath that cowardly talk beats the heart of a tiger! Mike Tyson demands a rematch. Mike Tyson will have his revenge magnificent! Evander Hollyfield will be destroyed by the power of Mike Tyson. Only in America, Evander Hollyfield will be punished, pulverized, penalized, pureed pureed![ Evander Hollyfield shows up. Crowd applause. Don King becomes nervous. ]
