Tyson Quotes

"Talking to the thirteen year old Mike about fear: 'Boxing is a sport of self-control. You must understand fear so you can manipulate it. Fear is like fire. You can make it work for you: it can warm you in the winter, cook your food when youre hungry, give you light when you are in the dark, and produce energy. Let it go out of control and it can hurt you, even kill you .Fear is a friend of exceptional people."

~ Cus D'Amato

Mike Tyson News: Freddie Roach responds on possibility of training Tyson again

Posted on Friday, February 18, 2005 @ 07:52:30 UTC by tysonian
In a boxingtalk interview Freddie Roach had some words about the possibility of training Mike Tyson again.

BT: Freddie, let's put to rest the rumors of you and Mike Tyson...concerning his training with you again.

Freddie Roach: Mike went to Florida and worked there for awhile. One of Mike's best friends called me and told me that he's back in Phoenix, and wants to start training. I told Mike that when he gets a date, that we can get to it, but right now I got Manny Pacquaio and James Toney coming up...and then you got Toney wanting to fight Tyson, and Tyson wanting to fight Toney...and that could be something in the future also (laughing)

BT: Freddie, what then??? You going to train both of those guys in the same gym, or what? (laughing)

Freddie Roach: (Laughing) No...I don't think so. That wouldn't be good. (laughing) I think they respect each other, but there is some animosity there as well because that would be a very competitive fight. I mean people could make money at the press conference for that one. (laughing)

BT: So what would you guys do, flip a coin? Heads, Justine goes to Phoenix and tails you stay in Hollywood or what? (laughing)

Freddie Roach: You know what...they are both my friends so I hope they don't fight each other. James Toney is one of my best friends. I have known him for a very long time...and Mike is one of my friends too so I would hate to lose a friend over it. But I have known James Toney for over 7 years now, so longevity has it's precedence.
