I have to forgive Mike. He's had a mood disorder since he was a kid. Boxing was a good outlet for him, but his coach and his trainer died. When Mike is on his meds he`s not violent, so he couldn`t take them and competitively box at the same time. Couple all that together with a troubled marriage and the boxing charlatans, like Don King, that embezzled money from him and it was only a matter of time before the train wreck occurred.
He was one of the best boxers to ever lace up his gloves, but he`s been unfairly pigeonholed as a maniac because of incidents that happened when he wasn`t taking his medicines.
It`s about as fair as blaming a hyperactive kid for acting out when his/her parents took them off their Ritalin.
