Tyson Quotes

"When they come up to the gym and say I want to be a fighter, the first thing Id do was talk to them about fear I would always use the same example of the deer crossing an open field and upon approaching the clearing suddenly instinct tells him danger is there, and nature begins the survival process, which involves the body releasing adrenalin into the bloodstream, causing the heart to beat faster and enabling the deer to perform extraordinarily feats of agility and strength It enables the deer to get out of range of the danger, helps him escape to the safety of the forest across the clearing an example in which fear is your friend."

~ Cus D'Amato

Boxing fan GEORGE CLOONEY is helping former boxing champ MIKE TYSON fight his bankruptcy with a role in the new A-TEAM movie.

"Iron Mike" was one of Clooney's heroes at the height of his boxing fame during the 1990s - and now the star is keen to act alongside the champion.

The Hollywood hunk has offered Tyson a multi-million deal to take the role of BA BARACUS - originally played by MR T in the hit TV series.

Although the money is a far cry from his boxing days, this acting role will certainly help the ex-world heavyweight out of his financial problems - as papers reported last week (begs19FEB04) he was down to his last $5,400 (GBP3,000) after blowing his $288 million (GBP160 million) fortune.

A source to Tyson says, "Mike is really blown away by the offer. He sees it as a way of making a fresh start of a whole new career. If it works out George will be he saviour. He can't wait to give it a go."

Clooney has just secured the rights to make the movie - and will himself achieve a lifetime ambition by playing A-Team leader HANNIBAL SMITH - made famous by GEORGE PEPPARD.
