Is this an appropriate use of a template? You could conceivably do this for any major boxer, or any celebrity, and have dozens of templates at the bottom of every celebrity article. Will there be an Evander Holyfield template at the bottom of the Mike Tyson article? A Lennox Lewis template? Is Mike Tyson's mug going to be at the bottom of the Islam article? This seems to be motivated more by fanboydom than any real need. JoeFink (talk) 15:37, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

The value of this template is questionable. The movie appearances section should go.--SaskatchewanSenator (talk) 22:50, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
There is an article called Mike Tyson in popular culture. I think he warrants his own template. --Endless Dan 22:55, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
OK. I agree. The movie appearances are not a significant part of his career and shouldn't be in the template.--SaskatchewanSenator (talk) 19:52, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
