    Many athletes in this world have to face unnecessary criticism from fans and fellow athletes. No matter if they reach the pinnacle of their sport, they’re still bound to be put down. Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight supremo of boxing, shared his notions on this vital juncture. Tyson was in an interview with Sports Illustrated, where he talked about Floyd Mayweather and LeBron James, who receive immense backlash from enthusiasts of their respective sport. “There’s no doubt about him (James), (and), Floyd Mayweather,” “There are people who expect perfection from someone who’s not perfect, the training is harder than the game so people really don’t know how difficult it is. “You don’t know how many great basketball players they are, they still don’t become constant stars,” he added.

    The production quality was excellent. Photo by Joe Scarnici / Triller Boxing exhibitions have been around for more than a century. But, in recent years, Floyd Mayweather, Mike Tyson, and Jake Paul have advanced the evolution of the spectacle and turned it into what we'll call showbiz boxing. Showbiz boxing is like the professional wrestling of real boxing. It's wild, in-your-face, and if you're a degenerate fight fan — like me — you'll enjoy it. And if you don't enjoy it, you'll have to get used to it because the recent Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition, in which Paul starred, generated more than 1 million pay-per-view sales. Last weekend's event was the best-selling boxing show of the year — by far. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. We've entered a golden era of exhibition boxing thanks to Mike Tyson, Jake Paul, and Floyd Mayweather. Boxing purists can say they don't like it and protest all they want, but there's a new sub-category in the sport. We'll call it showbiz boxing — a prizefighting equivalent of professional...

    It might be more than two months late, but Mike Tyson's showdown with Roy Jones Jr at the Staples Center in California is fast approaching. With just hours until the eight round charity exhibition bout, the odds have dramatically fallen in favour of 'Iron Mike' Tyson.  Tyson may have retired from the ring more than 15 years ago but fellow boxing icons Evander Holyfield - who had his ear bitten by Tyson in a now infamous bout - and Danny Williams have backed the 54-year-old to not only win, but 'seriously hurt' Jones Jr under the lights in Los Angeles.
