Mike Tyson Challenges Stephen Hawking

"It was fun, that's my first time boxing since my last fight."

- Mike Tyson, following last night's four-round exhibition against Corey "T-Rex" Sanders, a former sparring partner, in Youngstown, Ohio. He has said he will fight anyone, including women and children.

After the fight, he brazenly challenged Stephen Hawking, the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. He is known for his significant contributions to the field of quantum physics, particularly his theories regarding theoretical cosmology, quantum gravity, black holes, and his popular works in which he discusses his own theories and cosmology in general.

No word from the Hawking camp as of yet.


  1. Does he think that's funny? Am I losing my sense of humor?

  2. Actually, Pia, I made it up to point out how absurd Mike Tyson is. The quote is real and he did, in fact, state that he would fight anyone, including women and children.

    Plus, it contrasts one of the most stupid persons in the world to one of the (if not the) most brilliant.

  3. Did you know Stephen Hawkings and his wife have filed for divorce? This will be his second.


  4. Yes. I was aware of that. She thought he was a cosmetologist when they met. He never did cut her hair.

  5. Thanks Marinade Dave for your great Blog. All the articles and pictures are deeply interesting.
