The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Tyson and Lewis

    They will fight twice in 2002. What a money maker? Their contract is for one fight and than a re-match. Do they need to make it this obvious that the sport is all about money?

    Make your predictions now!

    Well it's what the fans want. If not they wouldn't make so much. Sure it woulda been good if they coulda done it when both fighters were in their prime...but better late then never. Lennox better tape his ears up!

    I agree Tyson is an animal and has a point to make, but Lewis should out box him.

    It's going to be an insane fight. I don't think people realize how much power Tyson has in his legs; and he knows how to use them (through his punches).

    Yes I guess now that he's broke Don King isn't paying Lennox to not fight him anymore...


    ..but if lennox cleans the floor with him what would the point of a rematch be? I mean Tyson's career will pretty much be over...only so many chances a guy gets...

    This fight is the first since 1543 that anyone of the fighters can win. Unlike 99.9% of the other fights, those are all bout the money. This could acctually be fun.

    Lewis has a glass jaw...Tyson only needs to hit him once in his tea stained mouth to win the fight.

    well I only saw on tv yesterday that tyson was being investigated for further rape charges. so have these been resolved and is it finalised they are gonna fight?

    Lewis has a glass jaw? Please... At the end of the day when you are at that weight and that level, if you get caught with a clean, sweet punhc you are goin out. Thats why the top pro fights have far less scrapping, and actual punches thrown. its more about keeping covered up and waiting for that opportunity.

    Thats what Lewis has lacked in the past, he lets his hands slip, and gets to cocky. I think if he has truly learned his lesson from Rahman he will outbox tyson like he did rahman.

    Think about his attitude in the 2 Rahman fights. First one he thought he would walk it,. let his hands fall down and bang he got caught.

    The second fight he kept them up, used his jab far more effeciently, damn did rahman even punch him!! He just completely dominated.

    I think that if it were to happen lewis would do this to tyson and tyson would get frustrated and go for the kill. If he caught lewis it could get interested but if Lewis plays it right and keeps him away and waits for tyson to get frustrated and leavbe some spaces Lewis will knock his ass out.

    I am def gonna bet on lewis

    the 2 things I admire about tyson though is how he did so well so young.

    Wasn't he heavyweight champion at like 18?

    Also his physique is just AMAZING.

    cool.

    also the 2 match deal would be on lewis's behalf as it seems each time a champion fights now in their contract they have a rematch clause. If tyson got beat he wouldn't get another shot at anything I doubt.

    I just checked the odds and they are Lennox Lewis 1.44 and Mike Tyson 2.62. Those odds suck. I wouldn't even bet on it because it isn't worth it. I'm going with Lennox even though I don't like either of them. Wait until my Canadian Kirk Johnson beats Ruiz and then faces the winner of Lewis Tyson.

    So I guess tyson has a glass jaw too since he got his ass whooped by buster douglas...lewis' fights go longer so he's used to taken a punch or two...tyson gets confused and disoriented past the first round, and must resort to biting...

    I meant this taken from cnn.com.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) -- A news conference to announce a world heavyweight title between world champion Lennox Lewis and former champion Mike Tyson was disrupted by a mass brawl involving the two fighters on Tuesday.

    The two fighters were standing on podiums on the stage at the front of the conference when Tyson suddenly walked across towards Lewis and seemed to throw a punch at another man standing near to the Briton.

    A fight then broke out involving the two fighters and around 20 other people on the stage.

    Lewis is the holder of the World Boxing Council (WBC) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) belts while former champion Tyson is the No. 1 WBC contender.
