Tyson to quit after McBride KO

Mike Tyson is to retire after his knockout defeat by unknown Ulsterman Kevin McBride in Washington DC. Tyson gave up at the end of the sixth round against the 32-year-old Clones journeyman. A sad but probably fitting end to the sporting career of a man whose criminal acts, violent personality and psychological problems probably prevented him from being one of the all-time greats.
