Brief Comments --- Tyson vs. McBride

By JE Grant

Reports today are that Irishman Kevin McBride, 32-4-1 (27 KOs) weighed in at 271, and Mike Tyson, 50-5 (2 NC) (44 KOs) weighed 233. For McBride, the weight is a career high and, at least from the photos of the weigh-in, he does not look the better for it.

Tyson is also heavy and looks it. His mid-section is thick and he is not the well-defined man-hunter of years past. He looks hard enough for this fight, but, if this is the best shape he can muster he will have severe problems with the top five contenders in the division.
