Tyson Quotes

"DAmato on his methods evolved and used over the years and used for tutoring Tyson: 'I tell them the first time theyre going to fight, the night before they probably wont sleep. I cant offer them any consolidation other than the fact that the other guy went through the same thing, and when they get down to the fight and enter the dressing-room, especially if theyre in an amateur fight, the room is full of possible opponents, because they dont know who theyre going to fight, and everybody looks calm, confident and smiling and all the new boy is aware of is that terrible thump in his chest, and hes intimidated by their attitude and their confidence. What he doesnt realize is that...Read more"

Mike Tyson News: Mesi Could Be Final Tyson Bout

Posted on Friday, April 02, 2004 @ 16:38:07 UTC by tysonian
​​​​Sources close to Mike Tyson indicate that Tyson may fight only once more and then call it a career. The fight that Tyson wants, according to sources close to him, is against Joe Mesi. This is a match that everyone involved in both camps seems to want to put together, possibly to be held in Mesi's hometown of Buffalo, MSG or Atlantic City.

There are many that feel that Mesi is custom made for Tyson. Mesi and Tyson have both called eachother out in the last few months and both want to make this fight happen.

Due to Mesi having a shaky defense, a suspect chin and an eagerness to go to war, most feel that even with his inactivity, Tyson could win this fight. Most feel that Tyson should jump to fight Mesi now, while Mesi's confidence may be shaken following two poor performances. Mesi went from being the next big thing, to being knocked down four times in two fights and barely gaining the nod in both of them.

Experts feel that neither fighter would stand a chance against either of the Klitschkos, who at this moment in time are ahead of the pack as the two most likely to rule the heavyweight division. The fight makes sense for both Tyson and Mesi, especially when it comes to the money involved.

The only roadblock that could get in the way is the fact that Tyson is signed with Showtime and Mesi has a deal with HBO. Due to the rival networks hardly working together to make anything happen, getting them to agree on putting this fight together is a longshot. While they worked together when it came to Tyson vs. Lewis, the money involved in that fight was too much for either network to pass up. Although there is a good deal of money in a Tyson vs. Mesi bout, it will not come close to the numbers involved in Tyson-Lewis.
