"Infamous" Mike Tyson & Jim Gray Interview in Glasgow, Scotland June 24th, 2000

Jim Gray - acclaimed sportscaster / controversial sideline reporter

Gray: Mike, was that your shortest fight ever?

Tyson: I bear witness to only one God and Muhammad blessing and people be upon him is his prophet. I dedicate this fight to my brothers that are gone…who died....I’ll be there to see you…I love with all my heart…all praise be to my children, I love you…um God…aww man, WHAT?!?!

Gray: Is this your shortest fight ever? In any time amateur, professional, ever?

Tyson: I don’t know man. YEAH. Yeah Lennox Lewis, Lennox, I’m comin’ for you!

Gray: Mike is it frustrating to train like you did and have this end seven to eight seconds...(interrupted)...

The Baddest Man
on the Planet
Tyson: (Interrupting) No, I didn’t train for this fight, I only trained probably two weeks, three weeks for this fight...I had to bury my best friend and I dedicate this fight, I wasn’t gonna fight, I dedicated this fight to him, I was gonna rip his heart out! I’m the best ever! I’m the most brutal and vicious and most ruthless champion there’s ever been! They’re ain’t no one can stop me!
Lennox is a conqueror? NO! I’m Alexander, he’s no Alexander, I’m the best ever! There’s never been anyone this ruthless, I’m Sonny Liston, I’m Jack Dempsey, there no one that can match me, I’m from their cloth. There’s no one that can match me. My style is impetuous, my defense is impregnable, and I’m just FEROCIOUS! I want your heart, I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!

Gray: You’re saying now Mike…(Gray grabs Mike’s shoulder but Mike is walking away)…Mike?
