Tyson Quotes

"DAmato on his methods evolved and used over the years and used for tutoring Tyson: 'I tell them the first time theyre going to fight, the night before they probably wont sleep. I cant offer them any consolidation other than the fact that the other guy went through the same thing, and when they get down to the fight and enter the dressing-room, especially if theyre in an amateur fight, the room is full of possible opponents, because they dont know who theyre going to fight, and everybody looks calm, confident and smiling and all the new boy is aware of is that terrible thump in his chest, and hes intimidated by their attitude and their confidence. What he doesnt realize is that...Read more"

Mike Tyson News: Tyson Finishes Community Service for Brawl

NEW YORK - Mike Tyson closed the book Wednesday on one of his many run-ins with the law: his brawl last year with two men outside a Brooklyn hotel.

Wearing a pink button-down shirt, leather jacket and cap pulled low over his eyes, Tyson made his way through a clump of photographers and the occasional fan to a downtown Brooklyn courtroom.

The former heavyweight champ had completed the 100 hours of community service imposed when he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct under an agreement with prosecutors, lawyer Mel Sachs told the judge.

Tyson, 38, did more than 100 hours of work with children at gyms in Brooklyn and Phoenix, Ariz., where he has been training, Sachs said.

"He's had a remarkable effect on the children of the community," Sachs said.

Tyson also completed six months of counseling ordered by the judge, the lawyer said.

With prosecutors' consent, the judge dismissed the charge against Tyson and ordered the record sealed. Sachs called the decision "a victory for Mike Tyson."

Tyson told police the brawl began after the men asked him for an autograph. He said that when he declined they warned him they were armed, with one saying, "You've got fists, we've got guns."

A hotel security videotape showed Tyson pushing one of the men and punching the other.

Charges against the two men were dismissed.

Tyson was jailed in 1992 for raping a beauty pageant contestant and in 1999 for assaulting two Maryland motorists.

More recently, he was cited on suspicion of criminal damage for allegedly jumping on the hood of an Arizona man's vehicle outside the Pussycat Lounge in suburban Scottsdale on Nov. 27. The man dropped his complaint after he was paid $1,400 for the damage.
