Tyson Quotes

"Tyson was so great until D'Amato and (Jimmy) Jacobs passed away. He was a great, great champ. The speed on his punches... not the speed of how the threw them, I'm talking about the 'speed' in which the brain tells the muscle to 'throw' - was unbelievable."

~ Miguel Diaz

Kevin Rooney, the man who helped Mike Tyson become heavyweight champion of the world is facing drunk driving charges.

Coxsackie Police said they arrested Kevin Rooney Friday night.

Rooney is charged with felony DWI and aggravated unlicensed operation of a car.

Police said he had a blood alcohol content level that was more than .10 when he was pulled over.

Rooney posted $750 bail, and is scheduled to be in court on Wednesday evening.
Because there has been similar related charges before, Rooney could risk a severe punishment.

Rooney was a state Golden Gloves champion who became Mike Tyson's trainer in 1982. He was one of the youngest trainer (at 27 years old) to have lead a heavyweight fighter to a world title. He is now carrying through Cus D'Amato's teaching in the Catskill boxing gym.
