Mike Tyson

I Got KNOCKED Out By

"Iron" Mike Tyson was once the most feared man on the planet -- but even he was no match for the fighters in his own awesome video game ... "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out."

We ran into Tyson in NYC and asked him how he fared against the likes of King Hippo, Soda Popinski, and the other heavy hitters in his hugely popular Nintendo game from the late 80s and 90s.

Mike 'fessed up that -- like most of us -- he could never take the belt from his own alter ego in the game ... Kid Dynamite.

Tyson also admitted there is a real-life person he'd be afraid to meet in a dark alley.

Hint: It's not Don Flamenco.

Mike Tyson will always be a dirtbag no matter how much he tries to change his persona. It's too little, too late mikey.

Actually, King Hippo was a formidable opponent.
Once a victory was secured against him, the potential
for a championship was increased.

Thank-you Michael, May The True and Living Yahweh, bless YOU!

Tyson I could beat virtually every time. The one I had the most trouble with was Super Macho Man.

Punch-Out on Wii is cool, you get to really swing, great with family 'cept sometimes you end up punching someone who gets too close bam!

I've always considered the Nintendo one to be the lesser game. I enjoyed the original Arcade game more and the final Champion was Mr. Sandman not Mike.

What's worse being against gay marriage or a convicted rapist?

Surely not the latter, because TMZ will put someone on blast who says "something is gay" but they will cozy right up to a convicted vagina tearing forceful penis inserting rapist like this guy.

Stop glorifying this man people.

I'm super, thanks for asking.

Mr sandman was the final enemy in punch out, The game they revised after mikes rape case. In the original, mike tyson was the final opponent. And just because you are accused of something doesnt make you that. He gets ***** thrown at him, why rape?
