Tyson Quotes

"On Mikes progress in the short time: 'The boy can do everything a champion is required to do, and if he does everything that hes capable of doing, I tell you he may go down as one of the greatest fighters of all time as a professional my judgment of a fighter are detached. I never allow my personal feelings to get involved, no matter how much affection I may have for him, and I can honestly say I have a very deep affection for him, and an admiration, having watched him come from where he was to what he is, because I know what it takes to do what hes done and what hes doing. I feel I was a part of it. Its almost like watching yourself. You never know how much you contributed to it, but the result is there and you like to think you had something to do with it."

~ Cus D'Amato

Mike Tyson News: Tyson court case aftermath: hotel brawlers off hook

Posted on Wednesday, March 24, 2004 @ 09:47:27 UTC by tysonian

March 24, 2004 -- The men who brawled with Mike Tyson at the Brooklyn Marriott last year won the fight in court yesterday.

Samuel Velez, 22, and Nestor Alvarez-Ramos, 25, smiled as they left Brooklyn criminal court with their lawyer, Wilson LaFaurie, after the menacing charges against them were dropped.

"They finally realized that we had nothing to do with it," Velez, who suffered the most severe injuries during the brawl, told The Post.

"My only shock was that Mr. Tyson did not go to jail," said Velez, who suffered a gash to the head during the incident.

The two fans say Alvarez-Ramos was just trying to shake the former heavyweight boxing champ's hand in the early morning of June 21, 2003, when the champ went ballistic at the downtown Brooklyn hotel.

Tyson, 37, struck a well-publicized plea bargain with prosecutors last month. He agreed to plead guilty to disorderly conduct, to go through six months of counseling and to work with kids, in exchange for the dismissal of misdemeanor assault and harassment charges.
