Joe Rogan: “What was the name of this crazy middleweight who climbed up to Jack Johnson and dropped him?”
Mike Tyson: “Stanley Ketchel. Cool man”.
Joe Rogan: “Oh yes. He could hit like that. “
Mike Tyson: “Very cool. But he was killed when he was in his prime (at 24 – Approx. “SE”). He took the girl away from some guy. Ketchel was a tough guy with a stance like “What are you going to do to me?” He beat that guy up, humiliated him. He returned and shot him. Ketchel was a wild, crazy guy. And fearless. “
(The official version is different – Ketchel at the ranch scolded the worker for beating the horse. The worker decided to take revenge the next day and shot the boxer with a gun at breakfast. The bullet pierced his shoulder and entered his lung. The rancher and friend of Ketchel even ordered a special wagon, to take the boxer to the Springfield clinic, but they could not save him. His last words were: “I am very tired. Take me to my mother.” – Approx. “SE”).
Joe Rogan: “When it comes to madmen, Roberto Duran comes to mind.”
Mike Tyson: “Crazy. But a handsome man. All these his actions were natural, Durand was in rhythm with them. “
