Tyson Quotes

"On being a professional: 'I believe a man is a professional when he can do what needs to be done no matter how he feels within. An amateur is an amateur in his attitude emotionally. A professional is an professional in the way he thinks and feels and in his ability to execute inder the most trying conditions. The ability to do what needs to be done regardless of the pressure and do it with poise, with no reflection of his inner feeling or conflict if it exists, is what makes a professional. It has nothing to do with their knowledge. Ill show you many amateurs with far superior knowledge and ability than top professionals."

~ Cus D'Amato

The charity walk will begin at city hall on Fremont Street and will run for 8 miles up Las Vegas Blvd., ending at Nellis Air Force Base. A trust fund has been established for donations.
