“I’m the Best Ever”: Bruce ‘Shu Shu’ Carrington Pays Homage to Mike Tyson After Victory

It was the first live boxing event for Bruce Carrington, and he wanted to make an impact! If his beautiful fourth-round knockout of Bernard Angelo Torres wasn’t enough, he ensured the post-fight interview stood out. In what nobody saw coming, the Brooklyn native paid homage to the former ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ Mike Tyson.

Last Friday night, ‘Shu Shu’ Carrington took home his 11th professional victory while opening for ESPN’s three-bout broadcast as part of the O’Shaquie Foster-Abraham Nova undercard at Madison Square Garden Theater, New York. However, by the time the fight had ended, Carrington had settled on bringing back a blast from the past involving his fellow Brooklyn native Tyson.

Bruce Carrington embodies Mike Tyson

Speaking to an ESPN representative during the post-fight interview, Carrington copied an iconic line from ‘Iron’ Mike, something Mike had said during a post-fight interview while calling out Lennox Lewis in the 90s. Top Rank shared the clip of the interview on their X (formerly Twitter) account on February 17 with a caption reading, “ShuShu just paid homage to Brownsville’s most famous alumnus.”

Carrington stated, “I’m the best ever. There is nobody like me. I am Sunny Liston…Nobody comes nearly close…There is nobody that can match me. My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable…” Carrington may have missed one or two lines from the monolog – Mike delivered back in the day. But that could be the result of his excitement to appear on national television, something he had prepared for.

Carrington performs best under pressure

With the phenomenal performance and repeating Mike Tyson’s speech, it seemed like Bruce Carrington came prepared for the entire night. And that is exactly what he did! Because the fight was going to be his first appearance on TV, he told Boxing Scene, “This is a big deal for me because it’s my first time fighting on national television.”

“I’m [going to] always bring a crowd-pleasing performance to every single one of my fights. And I feel like with this opportunity, it adds a little pressure. But I love the pressure. I think I fight the best when I have pressure on me,” said Carrington. And it’s safe to say that his performance and that unexpected speech at the end made sure of his smashing entry to the world stage.
