Tyson Quotes

"I never saw my mother happy with me and proud of me for doing something. She only knew me as being a wild kid running the streets, coming home with new clothes that she knew I didn't pay for. I never got a chance to talk to her or know about her. Professionally, it has no effect, but it's crushing emotionally and personally."

~ Mike Tyson on his mother who died when he was a kid

Press release: Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson worked the slip bag, sparred and shadow boxed before cooling down after a spirited 90-minute training session Thursday at The Central Gym in Phoenix.

"I'm feeling good and the hard work is paying off. I can feel it," said Tyson, who makes his eagerly awaited return to the ring against Kevin McBride June 11 on SHOWTIME Pay Per View. "I have been training for almost two months and feel excited about where I am at. It's funny, but I am doing all the little things now in training that I should have done when I was younger. I am working much harder. I am planning to fight a lot in the next 12 months. Now is the time to make my move.''
