    Default Does Mike Tyson Look like Nat King Cole?

    When I first saw Mike Tyson's picture in 1987, I thought that he looked like Nat King Cole. Upon learning that he was a Boxer, I could only imagine him singing and swinging his punches with style and grace. Tell me if there isn't a family gene that might make Tyson and King related?








    I really can see Mike Tyson singing this song...

    blasphemy

    And they carried themselves entirely differently. Nat King Cole gives off the completed inverted Vibe of Tyson.

    Nat Cole and Oscar Peterson didn't look alike, but when they sang, they sounded almost alike. Nat's voice was maybe slightly deeper (from too much smoking?). The Canadian jazz musician, Peterson, is better known for his piano playing, while the American jazz crooner, Cole, is better known for his singing--but they both did both very well.

    Tyson could pull off a Nat King Cole in an acting role.

    Nat Cole? If so, you need to, ASAP! The man was....liquid gold is the best way I can describe it. The smoothest singer I've ever heard, though Sinatra comes close. But Nat King Cole was just the best. His voice was a treasure. He was, dare I say it, unforgettable in every way.

    Tyson OTOH was a great boxer. Which is fine, but for me, Cole is the one I like best of the two......and NO, they don't look alike. Of course, Tyson now has all those ugly tats.

    Especially when you factor in the facial tattoo.

    Mike Tyson nearly had a music career instead of boxing. In fact I remember reading where he told Gus D'Amato back then how he wanted to give it all up for a music career as an angry teenage kid. From what was detailed he said , "Gus , I wanna sing and hurt people musically. I see myself a Nat King Cole. I wanna scar their children as I sing Unforgettable !"

    Sadly for Tyson his dreams of a music career torturing people through singing didn't happen. No labels would sign him. Instead he had to stick to boxing. Music lost a huge star...for damn sure.

    Other than skin color, I don't see the resemblance.
