Tyson Quotes


"The thing a kid in the street fears the most is to be called yellow or chicken, and sometimes a kid will do the most stupid, wild, crazy things just to hide how scared he is. I often tell them that while fear is such an obnoxious thing, an embarrassing thing nevertheless it is your friend, because anytime anyone saves your life perhaps a dozen times a day, no matter what how obnoxious he is, youve got to look upon him as a friend, and this is what fear is Since nature gave us fear in order to help us survive, we cannot look upon it as an enemy. Just think how many times a day a person would die if he had no fear. Hed walk in front of cars, hed die a dozen times a day. Fear is a protective mechanism .By talking to the fighters about fear I cut the learning time maybe as much as half, sometimes more, depending on the individual."

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson paid respects to one of his greatest heroes by visiting waxen revolutionary Mao Zedong on Beijing's Tiananmen Square.

Tyson, on a promotional visit to China, visited the Mao Zedong Memorial Hall on Saturday where the embalmed remains of the revolutionary leader lie in state, the Beijing Times said.

"I felt really insignificant next to the remains of Chairman Mao, this is a great honor to be able to visit the memorial hall," the paper quoted Tyson as saying.

Tyson, wearing a shirt with the picture of NBA centre Shaquille O'Neal, quickly left the crowded hall after purchasing several books on Mao, shouting "I love you" to Chinese onlookers, the paper said.

An arm tattoo of the revolutionary dictator became one of Tyson's hallmarks as he pummeled his way through opponents in a career interspersed with frequent run-ins with the law.

While serving a prison sentence in the 1990s, Tyson read Mao's selected works and expressed admiration for the man who is still revered in China for unifying the nation.

Tyson, 39, arrived in Shanghai on Thursday to officialy open a new nightclub of his friend. Friday he met with local residents during his visit to the Oriental Holiday Resort and received a gift from the Luodian Township.
