What are the consequences of fighting Mike Tyson?
When Shannon Bridge took the opportunity to fight Mike Tyson, she knew that there would be some consequences. Now, over a year later, she is still fighting the fallout from her decision.
Since making the decision to fight Tyson, Bridge has faced public scrutiny and criticism from almost everyone she knows. Her family and friends have abandoned her, leaving her with very few people who support her decision. In addition, she has had to deal with financial struggles as a result of the backlash against her.
Despite these challenges, Bridge is committed to facing them head on. She believes that by standing up to Tyson and showing him that he cannot intimidate her, she will help to change his image and set an example for other women who may be considering challenging him in the future.

Shannon’s nephew, D’Andre King, was also in Tyson’s ring in 2006 when he faced off against the former heavyweight champion. Shannon used that experience to help prepare for this fight.
“I know what he’s going to do and I can counteract it,” she said. “I was able to watch his entire fight against [2006 opponent] Corrie Sanders and figure out where he was going to hit me and how to block it.”
Shannon knows that Tyson is a formidable foe, but she won’t let him intimidate her. “I have fought people with more anger and rage in their hearts than Mike Tyson has, so I know I can handle him,” she said. “He may be a physical specimen but so am I.”
