Tyson Quotes


"Everyone in boxing probably makes out well except for the fighter. He's the only one that's on Skid Row most of the time, he's the only one that everybody just leaves when he loses his mind . He sometimes goes insane, he sometimes goes on the bottle, because it's a highly intensive pressure sport that allows people to just lose it [their self-control]."

Mike Tyson News: Hazzard defends Tyson license!

Posted on Thursday, June 24, 2004 @ 09:07:06 UTC by tysonian
New Jersey State Athletic Control Board commissioner Larry Hazzard has defended his decision to grant Mike Tyson a boxing license, and took dead aim at Governor James McGreevey and other grandstanding politicians who are grabbing headlines by vowing to block Iron Mike from fighting in the state. "In my 19 years as commissioner, I've never had to notify the governor's office or the attorney general, or any other agency, of a decision involving a boxing matter," Hazzard was quoted as saying in the Newark Star-Ledger. "It has always been my judgment. I'm here to run boxing, and that is what I do...this is part of a Catch-22 situation. I head an agency that needs revenue for survival. Mike Tyson has been clean for some time now, and if he chooses to fight here, it will help the industry." Hazzard also told the paper he resents strong forces in government trying to dictate who should fight or not fight.
