Miguel Olivo wanted to be like Mike Tyson, without the ear biting

Hat tip to Gilbert Acevedo for the find.

Miguel Olivo, who bit the ear of teammate Alex Guerrero in Triple-A Albuquerque's game on Tuesday morning in Salt Lake City, was interviewed in spring training by Telemundo.

Asked what he would do if he wasn't a baseball player, Olivo said (translated), "I would like to be a boxer like #MikeTyson but without biting an ear."

You can't make this stuff up.
