Mike Tyson: Pacquiao's win over Rios 'one of the most sensational performances in boxing history'

Mike Tyson may have finally snapped for good.

Proving once and for all beyond a shadow of a doubt that things Mike Tyson says can't be trusted, the former heavyweight champ took to Twitter this afternoon to give a quick thought on Manny Pacquiao's win in Macao over Brandon Rios. This is a real thing he said:

So, I mean, that's something.

Tyson, 47 (yes, he's younger than Bernard Hopkins), has been featured on HBO programming lately, as he sat in for a round during the Andre Ward-Edwin Rodriguez fight on November 16, and his film Undisputed Truth was a recent HBO Sports project (as well as a joint from Spike Lee!).

There are four possibilities here:

  1. Mike believes he's an HBO company man, and is spreading the gospel of HBO boxing.
  2. Mike is getting his mind wrapped around being a promoter, which means grossly overstating everything to the point of it being ridiculous, even when it's actually good or great or truly sensational.
  3. Mike didn't see the fight.
  4. Mike has finally lost his mind completely, but not in a bad way.
