Posted by Sabrina B.Â @gametimegirl – Early congrats to Mike Tyson!
This SundayÂ Mike Tyson will be doing something that many in boxing, including Tyson himself, never thought he would live to do – stand at a podium and be inducted in theÂ International Boxing Hall of Fame inÂ Canastota, N.Y.
Not that they didn’t think he deserved to be included among the sports all-time greats such asÂ Muhammad Ali,Â Joe Louis,Â Rocky Marciano andÂ Sugar Ray Robinson. They just thought if he went in, it would be posthumously.
“It’s a miracle I am still alive. I have lived a wild and strange life,” Tyson said while promoting “Tyson,” a documentary on his life at theÂ Cannes Film Festival two year ago.
Miracle or not, Tyson, 44, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame, joiningÂ Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.,Â Kostya Tszyu, trainer Ignacio (Nacho) Beristain, refereeÂ Joe Cortez and actorÂ Sylvester Stallone in the 2011 class.
