Tyson Quotes

"When you're a great finisher, you'll become popular. Joe Louis was a great finisher. So was Ray Robinson. Ray Leonard. They got a man in trouble and they threw everything they had at him. Bring him down"

Mike Tyson News: King shows Tyson the money: Don agrees to pay $14 mln to settle fraud lawsuit

Posted on Thursday, June 24, 2004 @ 17:48:04 UTC by tysonian
Don King has agreed to pay $14 million to settle a lawsuit brought by Mike Tyson, who sued the oily promoter in 1998 for $100 million, claiming that the fright-haired hustler fleeced him of prize purses. Details of the King-Tyson agreement are contained in a proposed reorganization plan filed today in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, where the wreckage of the 37-year-old heavyweight's finances has been laid out in excruciating detail since Tyson's Chapter 11 filing last August. The eight-figure King payment is conditioned upon a bankruptcy judge's approval of the Tyson reorganization plan or the legal agreement itself. For his part, King, 72, does not admit liability for the allegations in Tyson's federal complaint, according to a description of the settlement contained in the Tyson reorganization plan, excerpts of which you'll find in the extended section of this post.
