"Heller goes for the knockout. His book is both a biography and a history of contemporary boxing, a fascinating tale of greed, violence, sex, and dollars."--San Francisco Chronicle Mike Tyson is boxing's most beloved bad boy. With a history of street-gang violence, juvenile prison, sexual scandal, marital strife, courtroom battles, and imprisonment for rape, he has become one of the most publicized athletes in history. At age 23 he was already considered among the greatest prizefighters of all time, and, his career is far from over. Relying on in-depth research and interviews with those who have known Tyson at every stage of his life, Bad Intentions portrays the shy child who became a vicious street thug, discovered boxing in juvenile prison, and was brought to the attention of the legendary Cus D'Amato to be shaped to be one thing only--heavyweight champion of the world. Here is Tyson's fight-by-fight path to that goal, the millions of dollars made and fought over, the sex and violence of his personal life, and his eventual defeats both in the ring and in court. Bad Intentions is an essential read for all who would understand the ins and outs of the most controversial sport in America.… (altro)

Big, black and bad.

Disclaimer: any relationship of this review to Alphonso’s penis is purely coincidental and neither the writer nor Mike Tyson’s mother accept any responsibility.

As for Alphonso’s mother: it is told that once she realised the enormity (I use this word advisedly) of what she had brought into the world, she has spent the rest of her life cloistered in this convent, having taken a vow of silence. Historians and biographers are not, however, altogether agreed on this. Some claim that Alphonso’s mother had 28 more children, in the vain hope that 28 normal human beings could neutralise the impact of one Alphonso.
quoted from wiki. Note that this entry has been challenged on grounds of bias. Why the word ‘vain’, it has been argued.

Note: The star system in this case has been used purely as a measure of appreciation of Alphoso's penis.

Note to self: do not transfer this to my review blog. ( )
