Tyson Quotes

"One time in Atlantic City, Mike had gotten a bloody nose and Jimmy (Jacobs) wanted me to stop the sparring. I told Jimmy 'What the fuck? If he gets a bloody nose in the fight, you want me to stop the fight then too?!' Then, Jimmy understood exactly what I meant. Another time in Vegas, Mike got a little cut over his eye a few days before a fight. But, the cut didn't re-open because he would move his head."

Mike Tyson News: It's Official, Tyson Will Fight Again In 2004!

Posted on Wednesday, August 04, 2004 @ 02:29:21 UTC by tysonian
It has been reported to BoxingScene that Mike Tyson manager Shelly Finkel is already planning another Tyson comeback and Top Rank head honcho Bob Arum may lead the charge this time. Finkel said that Tyson it's a "done deal" for Tyson to fight again in either November or December of 2004.

"Shelly called me and said, 'We still want you to be involved. Tyson's going to fight. Would you be interested?' Yes, I would be. I have a plan, but the money is a lot different (from original 100 million dollar deal prior to Williams loss)." said Arum

"The plan is to stop looking to milk the public with pay-per-view shows. It's to build up Tyson's confidence. He has to fight marginal opponents. Fight six or seven fights and get his confidence back, then maybe a Williams rematch, then a top contender, then a shot at the title. You follow the Foreman Plan."

The "Foreman Plan" refers to the way Arum brought back George Foreman after his ten year retirement from the sport.

"I think Bob is really good at what he does. We spoke about it, and we'll see if there is a way to do it. I called Bob, and I'm interested. I know the deal won't be what it could have been before but we'll try to work out something good for Bob and good for Mike." said Finkel
