Esteemed Canadian political theorist Mike Tyson made a bold statement on Tuesday, calling Rob Ford the "best mayor in Toronto history."

Tyson was in town for his one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, and stopped by City Hall to meet with the beleaguered mayor, who gained international attention when he admitted to smoking crack in a "drunken stupor." Tyson defended Ford, saying he appreciated Ford's willingness to address his problems. "He has a troubled past because he has 24-hour surveillance of the press," Tyson said. "Do you prefer him to be a guy who's clean cut but behind the doors you never know what he's doing?"
