Tyson Quotes

"DAmato on his methods evolved and used over the years and used for tutoring Tyson: 'I tell them the first time theyre going to fight, the night before they probably wont sleep. I cant offer them any consolidation other than the fact that the other guy went through the same thing, and when they get down to the fight and enter the dressing-room, especially if theyre in an amateur fight, the room is full of possible opponents, because they dont know who theyre going to fight, and everybody looks calm, confident and smiling and all the new boy is aware of is that terrible thump in his chest, and hes intimidated by their attitude and their confidence.

Former boxing champion Mike Tyson donated cash to a charity set up after a West Yorkshire policewoman was shot on duty.

The former world champion handed £5,000 to the Sharon Beshenivsky Fund after being touched by reports of her brutal murder.

The 38-year-old mum-of-five was killed and her colleague Teresa Milburn,of Birstall, was hurt as they investigated reports of a robbery at a travel agent's shop in Bradford last November.

Tyson was attending a dinner the night of the shooting and later declared he wanted part of his fee to go to Sharon's memorial fund.

He said: "Somebody has been killed in the line of duty while we were out at a dinner enjoying ourselves and I would like a donation from that night's proceeds going to the victim's family."

The fund has now raised more than £40,000 to help support Sharon's children. West Yorkshire Police Federation chairman Tom McGhie welcomed the boxer's donation and said: "It's a bit of a surprise but it shows everybody can be touched by the horror of something like this." A police spokesman added: "Sharon's death has had a massive impact and generated messages of support and donations from across the world."
