Tyson Quotes

"On how Cus Damato helped him: 'People think I was born this way. They dont know what it took to get this way. The training, when you have to do things over and over again until youre sore. Deep in your mind you say, God, I dont want to do this no more, and then you push. I always used to think I was a coward because of the way I felt. Cus was there when I needed him he was the one. Cus would always explain you should always do things to build your character and make you a better individual. He was different than anyone Id ever met, because principle meant more than anything to him, more than money, more than health, more than his life. He would sacrifice anything for principle, for what he believed was right."
