Tyson Quotes

"The Spinks punch was pretty good. Mike hit him on the chin and put him in La-La Land. Although, that was expected because Spinks was a little nervous. But, Spinks grabbed his 13 million and got the hell out of there and retired. But, the Trevor Berbick punch... THAT was the best! He knocked Trevor down three times with one punch! That was a hell of a punch. That was the best one!"

~ Kevin Rooney about the best punch Mike threw

Tyson History News: Years ago exactly on this day...

Posted on Tuesday, November 22, 2005 @ 14:49:44 UTC by tysonian
22 November. Today exactly 19 years ago Mike Tyson became the youngest Heavyweight Champion of the world by a brutal win over Trevor Berbick. With before unseen power and viciousness in a title-fight young Mike Tyson won his first and personally one of his most important title. By winning the WBC belt he payed homage to his late mentor Cus D'Amato proving the belief of his mentor was not misplaced,..that he not only could be the next heavyweight champion of the world,...but also the youngest heayyweight champion of the world. A record not broken since then and established for a long time to come (most possibly forever). By winning the WBC belt Mike also started the unification series; an amazing, unique and bold effort only few great champions ever could accomplish. Today 19 years ago Mike Tysons rule of his first era began and he did it in style no one else has ever done since. Today 19 years ago the whole world saw the phenomenal called Mike Tyson, the whole world was stunned by the talent, force and power displayed by him and the whole world since then has not forgotten this day.

Feel free to relive this memorable moment togehter with many fellow Tyson fans by watching the full Tyson-Berbick fight (from the Download Fights-section).
