Hey, so this guy was once allowed in a ring with Mike Tyson.
Sure, it was early in Tyson’s career and we didn’t yet know the boxing phenom he was to become, but c’mon…the guy had MAN BOOBS.
If you look up “sacrificial lamb” in the dictionary, there’s a picture of Mike Jameson.
And, as if the man boobs weren’t enough to let you know that Tyson was —- literally —- punching above his weight class, the guy didn’t even have a cool nickname. He was announced as “Irish Mike Jameson.”
No “Iron Mike Tyson.”
No “The Real Deal Holyfield.”
Even Rocky, a fictional character, got “Italian Stallion.”
That’s low, Mike.
Makes me think back to those Saturday morning 1980’s WWF matches when a superstar like The Ultimate Warrior would fight some no-name dude in unicolor briefs. The Ultimate Warrior would come running in to some upbeat song, strobe lights, wearing a fringed robe. His opponent: “John McFarrrrrrrrrrrrrlane!!!”
He should have had a sign on his back that said “Just here for the ass-kicking.”
Video of the fight here.
