“My career has been over since 1990, I’m not too interested in these swan songs I’m continuing to hear. I’m just Mike. I’m a peasant. I’m here to entertain the people. I’m no elite person. At one stage in my life, I had my little jewelry and all my little girlfriends and my big cars and things. At one point, I thought life was about acquiring things. But as a I get older, life is totally about losing everything.  I don’t want the finest girl in the world anymore. I’m just trying to stay balanced, basically.”

-Mike Tyson (USA Today, 2005)
