Tyson Quotes

"Everyone in boxing probably makes out well except for the fighter. He's the only one that's on Skid Row most of the time, he's the only one that everybody just leaves when he loses his mind . He sometimes goes insane, he sometimes goes on the bottle, because it's a highly intensive pressure sport that allows people to just lose it [their self-control]."

Tyson agrees to train with Fenech

Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is to train full-time with Australian boxing great Jeff Fenech.

Fenech told Aussie broadcaster Channel Nine that Tyson, 38, could even make his next comeback Down Under.

"I'm a great friend of Mike, and it will be a pleasure to try to get him back on track," said Fenech, who won world titles in three weight divisions.

"I think that the best thing for him would be to get away from everything in America," he added.

"Mike's a changed man, he wants to do the right thing."

Fenech worked briefly as assistant to Tyson's coach Freddie Roache before his last fight - a humiliating, four-round loss to England's Danny Williams in July.

He said he wanted to bring Tyson to Australia in hope of reinventing his battered public image and his professional career.

"I think it will be great for Australian boxing, it will be great for Australia, for people to meet him.

"I'd love for Australia to see the real Mike Tyson. The real Mike Tyson is a gentleman."

Asked if Tyson could hold his next fight in Australia, Fenech said he was already working on it.

"I've made some phone calls, I'm going try to come up with some numbers with some people in Australa and see what we can do," he said.
