Why the hell would you want to rob Mike Tyson? The man races pigeons. (Photo by Vittorio Zunino Celotto/Getty Images)
In one of the most brain dead stories of the day, TMZ is reporting that an intruder broke into Mike Tyson's hotel room at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Tyson was asleep at the time when the intruder was rustling around with a flashlight. Mike awoke shortly after the break-in started and the intruder fled quite quickly. Apparently the intruder didn't steal anything from Iron Mike. The intruder probably realized that he was robbing Mike Tyson who is crazy and then promptly ran away. Unless it was a person who was trying to reenact "The Hangover" but then figured out that Mike Tyson does not always have a tiger.
I have no idea how things like this actually happen. First off there are security guards at the elevator to prevent people who are not hotel guests from even getting into the part of the hotel where the guest rooms are located. Next the person would somehow need to get past the electronic key card reader that keeps the door locked. It is pretty easy to get in if you have a special metal thing to fit under the door and then use the doorknob from the inside. There are some videos on YouTube if you want to know how to do that. However you would have to sneak the metal piece past the security people at the elevator.
This whole story is very strange and it got me to thinking what would be the worst boxers to rob. I think mine would have to be Marcos Maidana. I feel like he would absolutely hunt me down and completely destroy me. He has that killer instinct and a very big mean streak. Maybe Victor Ortiz because he is completely insane and he would head butt me into oblivion. Who would be your worst nightmare?
