Tyson Quotes


"I've seen him take a shot, 'Said Mikes ex trainer, Kevin Rooney. 'When he was 15, he sparred with Carl [The Truth] Williams in the gym and go nailed right on the button. He walked right though it, like it was nothing.'"

~ Kevin Rooney

Mike Tyson News: Mike Tyson Statement on Court Sentence

Posted on Monday, November 19, 2007 @ 16:24:35 UTC by tysonian
Boxing great Mike Tyson issued the following statement today: "I just want to say how happy I am today that the judge has granted me freedom stemming from an arrest one year ago. I am thankful to everyone who has helped me through a very difficult time. To my family, friends and fans around the world who have sent letters and provided support, I thank you. To my lawyers and to all the people who have helped me stay clean and sober for the past 10 months, thank you. I will be taking one day at a time; staying sober is my job. There are many people who are fighting for their lives from drug and alcohol addiction. I will use my time and energy to help those in need. Now I look forward to spending time with my children."

Mike Tyson first rose to fame when he was named the youngest ever World Boxing Council heavyweight boxing champion in 1986 at age 20, and went on to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion the next year, a title he held until 1990.
