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: Larry Holmes reacts on recent Tyson loss

BoxingInsider: Having fought the Mike Tyson of 1988, what were thinking seeing the Tyson of 2005?

Larry Holmes: Watching the Mike Tyson of 2005 fighting guys everybody thinks he should beat, but you got to remember one thing: Mike Tyson is a dollar for the people who promote him. People who dont promote him dont give a damn about Mike Tyson. What happened is, Mike Tyson was overmatched for the third time. The reason why Im saying that is because he had a whole year off each time he fought and he goes in there to fight [McBride] who may not be good, but hes strong. And he could take a punch. Mike Tyson didnt have the stamina to go the distance and he ran out of gas. By him running out of gas the guy was ready to take advantage of him. It aint that these guys are so good or Mike Tyson is so bad, its just that they didnt give Mike Tyson enough time to get ready for the fight. So thats what I say and thats what I stand by. It comes down to poor management of the fighter. A manager wants his product to win, so he goes out and gets a lesser product so Mike Tyson can knock the guy out. But no, they get him the toughest product. This guy may have a record of 33 wins and 4 losses. Those four losses dont mean the guy cant fight. Besides, Mike Tysons only five-foot-ten, eleven. Why fight a guy whose 67?, 280 pounds? Give me a break!
