Tyson Quotes

"Every fighter that ever lived had fear. A boy comes to me and tells me that hes not afraid, if I believed him Id say hes a liar or theres something wrong with him. Id send him to a doctor to find out what the hells the matter with him, because this is not a normal reaction. The fighter thats gone into the ring and hasnt experienced fear is either a liar or a psychopath "

Mike Tyson News: Tyson still in talk with Duran as trainer

Posted on Sunday, January 09, 2005 @ 08:46:26 UTC by tysonian
MIAMI, FL- Former World champ Roberto Duran is reportedly on his way to Miami to meet with former Heavyweight champion "Iron" Mike Tyson.

"Tyson called me and asked if I could train him." Duran said. "He told me that he has arranged a place for me to stay while we train in Miami."

Duran says he is willing to train Mike, so long as the once undisputed heavyweight champ stays focused and on track. "I'm not going over there to waste my time." he said. "So he is going to have to obey me."

Duran says he will arrive in Miami sometime sunday, and from there he will meet with Tyson, so that the two can iron-out all the details.

Roberto Duran (b. June 16, 1951) is a famous and legendary boxer from Panama. He held world titles at four different weights - lightweight (1972-79), welterweight (1980), junior middleweight (1983-84) and middleweight (1989). He was also the only boxer to have fought in five different decades. He finally retired in January 2002 (having previously retired in 1998) following a bad car crash in October 2001, aged 52 with a professional record of 120 fights, 104 wins with 69 KOs. He was nicknamed Manos de Piedra (Hands of Stone). A popular legend is that Duran, as a youngster, knocked out a horse with one punch.
