Tyson Quotes

"About training the twelve year old Mike at Tryon reform school: 'Everything I showed him-he would go back to his room and practice it over and over. At three in the morning one could hear movement and the snorting from Mikes room, learning, perfecting what Id taught him the day before. The third-shift staff had to put him to bed every night.' [Fire, 41]"

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.
