Tyson Quotes

"On how Cus Damato helped him: 'People think I was born this way. They dont know what it took to get this way. The training, when you have to do things over and over again until youre sore. Deep in your mind you say, God, I dont want to do this no more, and then you push. I always used to think I was a coward because of the way I felt. Cus was there when I needed him he was the one. Cus would always explain you should always do things to build your character and make you a better individual. He was different than anyone Id ever met, because principle meant more than anything to him, more than money, more than health, more than his life. He would sacrifice anything for principle, for what he believed was right."

Mike Tyson News: Kevin Rooney on Classic Now!

Former Mike Tyson trainer, Kevin Rooney will make a very rare television appearence on ESPN's brand new show entitled 'Classic Now.' The famed coach will discuss the events surrounding Tyson's infamous Harlem street fight with Mitch 'Blood' Green back in 1988. ESPN Classic will air the show on Tuesday August 23rd at 7 p.m. and it will be re-broadcast at 11 p.m. Tyson-Green first faced each other in 1996 at Madison Sq. Garden where Green lost a 10 round unanimous decision. While that bout garnered little attention, their unsanctioned one round brawl on a Harlem street at 4 a.m. (in front of Dapper Dan's 24 hour clothing store) created so much hype, that a rematch of their 1996 fight was seriously considered. However, all that materialized was a fracture to Tyson's right hand, swelling to Green's left eye, damage to a sideview mirror on Tyson's Rolls Royce, shirts torn, charges filed then dropped... and Green longing for a rematch to this very day.
