Tyson Quotes


"Mike Tyson is so fast and so powerful that it is almost impossible to resist the guy's punching power. Wherever he hits you, you're going to feel it. He reminds me maybe of George Foreman, but Tyson's much faster than Foreman. He reminds me in style of Rocky Marciano, but he's much faster than Marciano, and he's much bigger, 217 pounds. And he's faster and much more powerful than Joe Frazier, with a better hook. I really have no one to compare him with in terms of punching power."

Tune In To Mike Tyson Week This Week Only On ESPN Classic

"Iron" Mike Tyson exploded into the national spotlight as a young, raw, intimidating and fierce boxer in his late teens. For close to the next two decades, the mere mention of his name invoked fear and/or fascination around the world. Tyson laid waste to the heavyweight division of boxing from 1985 to 1990, gathering an undefeated record and de-manhooding some of the more prominent boxers of that era: Michael Spinks; Larry Holmes; and Pinklon Thomas. As fast as his meteoric rise occurred, so did his fall from grace.

All this week, ESPN Classic pays homage to the Tyson the world of boxing loved.

Mike Tyson Week will air Monday-Friday from 8-9 p.m. ET on ESPN Classic.
