Glass Joe was a BUM — a talentless, pathetic sissy who got beat down by just about everyone who owned a Nintendo back in the ’80s … everyone except THE REAL MIKE TYSON!!!!
Tyson was leaving Crustacean in Beverly Hills last night when we brought up the greatest video of all time — not Contra, not Tetris, not even Ninja Gaiden … we’re talkin’ Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out for the NES.
But despite the fact his 8-bit alter ego was almost impossible to defeat, flesh-and-blood Tyson says he was so bad at the game, he couldn’t get past the 1st character … Glass Joe.
Mike says he didn’t really get into video games until 2006, 2007 … but now he LOVES ’em … and says he’s even become obsessed with a couple of titles.
BTW, Mike … if you ever get the urge to crack open MTPO, just remember — 007-373-5963.
