Or he lucked out and avoided getting pounded by Lewis.
That's my guess... As soon as I saw the clips of Tyson snapping, I made the assumption he's afraid of getting his ass handed to him by Lewis. I could be completely off base, and it could have everything to do with the fact that Tyson is a loose cannon/nutcase, but it sure looks like an easy way out of a fight he had no chance of winning.
I read in the paper this morning (dutch time) and before the comitee voted against him that both the boxing fed and Lewis have already said they want the fight to take place somewhere else. Now let's see what Mikey says..

This is one of those topics that completely splits me. On one hand I don't want to see that piece of garbage earn another penny from a multi million dollar boxing match. I think that rapists should stay locked up, but that should be in the politics board, I guess. On the other hand I wouldn't mind seeing Lennox hand his washed up ass to him on a plate.
So if the licence is not being given out, I don't know if I want to see them get the go ahead somewhere else or not.
"Nobody enjoys a good time more than I do, but this business of yours is as legitimate as a three-legged donkey...which of course is illegitimate because as we all know donkeys have four legs."
I personally wouldn't mind if he never boxed again. He's a complete psycho, and after that rape conviction he shouldn't have been allowed within ten miles of a boxing ring, not to mention inside one and competing for the world heavyweight championship.
Seems he still can't keep out of trouble, as evidenced by yet another woman screaming rape against him, and by his wife wanting to divorce him for having an affair.
They should kick him out of the “sport” (and I use that term incredibly loosely) and make the ring safe for decent people.

I was flipping channels and came across one of the original Pete and Pete movie specials, and I happen to think that the original shorts and later the movie versions of this were probably the most original tv I've seen.
