Tyson Quotes

"On Mikes progress in the short time: 'The boy can do everything a champion is required to do, and if he does everything that hes capable of doing, I tell you he may go down as one of the greatest fighters of all time as a professional my judgment of a fighter are detached. I never allow my personal feelings to get involved, no matter how much affection I may have for him, and I can honestly say I have a very deep affection for him, and an admiration, having watched him come from where he was to what he is, because I know what it takes to do what hes done and what hes doing. I feel I was a part of it. Its almost like watching yourself. You never know how much you contributed to it, but the result is there and you like to think you had something to do with it."

~ Cus D'Amato

Mike Tyson News: Mike Tyson reports to jail - video

Posted on Tuesday, November 20, 2007 @ 12:08:24 UTC by tysonian
PHOENIX (AP) Mike Tyson reported to jail Tuesday, an open-air facility where he'll serve a one-day sentence for a DUI conviction.

The former heavyweight champion will be held in a secluded part of Tent City, apart from the 1,500 other inmates.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio said he considers Tyson to be a high-risk prisoner and that each one of his fist is a lethal weapon.

Besides the day in jail, Tyson was sentenced to three years' probation. He also must perform 360 hours of community service and undergo drug testing.

Tyson faced a maximum sentence of four years and three months in prison. Prosecutors recommended a one-year sentence, but the judge said the boxer has tried to atone for his crimes.

During a sentencing hearing Monday, Judge Helene Abrams said she was impressed with the boxer's attempts to complete his GED and how he voluntarily sought treatment for drug addiction.

"Sobriety is a lifetime job," Abrams told Tyson.
