Tyson Quotes


"What was so amazing about him was he was such a small guy in an era of tall fighters... just like Marciano was. Mike was 220 but he was fighting guys 240-250."

1 US Olympic boxer Shields stronger after conflict with coach (The Associated Press)

Claressa Shields won a gold medal as the most dominant fighter in London at the first Olympic women's boxing tournament. ''Oh, we clashed heads quite a bit in the first few months,'' Billy Walsh said with a grin. Shields also smiles at the memory of her introduction to Walsh, the respected amateur coach who took over the U.S. boxing team late last year.

3 Olympics-Boxing-New dawn for Olympic tournament, same old controversy (Reuters)
By Alan Baldwin LONDON, July 27 (Reuters) - Professional boxers will join amateurs in the ring for the first time in Olympic history in Rio but anyone hoping for box-office big-hitters can think again, even with Muhammad Ali in the draw. Three times world champion Lazaro Alvarez, a bronze medallist in 2012, will be another top contender in the lightweight division.

6 Olympic boxers to fight without headgear, worry about cuts (The Associated Press)

Although Antonio Vargas still thinks about the cut that nearly ended his Olympic dream, his unprotected head will be clear when he steps into the ring in Rio de Janeiro. Vargas grew up sparring and competing in protective headgear, so he had never been cut in a fight before his face split open in that bloody loss at the U.S. Olympic team trials seven months ago. Cuts haven't been a major concern in Olympic boxing since 1980, but they will be a constant danger in Rio, where the 250 male fighters will box without headgear for the first time since Moscow.

7 New York inspector general faults state boxing commission (The Associated Press)
An investigation launched by New York's inspector general after a pro fighter suffered nearly fatal injuries concluded the state boxing commission was plagued by deficient practices, limited oversight and conflicts of interest. Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott said her office's probe into the New York State Athletic Commission was prompted by the severe brain injuries and poor post-fight treatment suffered by heavyweight Magomed Abdusalamov in 2013 at Madison Square Garden. Investigators said the fighter walked outside afterward, vomited, then was taken by his handlers in a 15-minute taxi ride to Roosevelt Hospital, though there were ambulances available at the arena.

8 Boxing: Bitter London lesson drives Yadav on path to Rio (Reuters)
By Amlan Chakraborty NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Vikas Krishan Yadav has learned from the bitterest experience that he can leave nothing to chance in the Olympic ring and it is a lesson the Indian boxer will carry with him to the Rio Games. Four years ago, the then 20-year-old welterweight thought he had clinched a place in the quarter-finals of the London Olympic tournament after beating American Errol Spence 13-11. India subsequently took the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), which rejected the appeal.

Terence Crawford won both the fight and a possible ticket into the Manny Pacquiao sweepstakes. Crawford turned in a dominating performance Saturday night in a battle of unbeaten champions, knocking Viktor Postol down twice on his way to a lopsided 12-round unanimous decision to put himself in the running for a fight with Pacquiao in November. Crawford took control of the 140-pound title unification fight with two knockdowns in the fifth round, and then shut down Postol the rest of the way.

10 Boxing: After headguards, vests next on Olympic hit list (Reuters)
By Alan Baldwin LONDON (Reuters) - Male boxers will step into the ring without headguards at the Rio Olympics for the first time since the 1980 Moscow Games, and their vests could be next on the hit list. "The removal of vests (from the ring) is a proposal we are looking at," a spokesman for governing body AIBA told Reuters in response to a query. "It has to be approved by the relevant AIBA commission and approved by the executive committee and then we will present this request to the IOC (International Olympic Committee)." Unlike professionals, who fight bare-chested, Olympic boxers have always worn tops -- possibly for reasons of decency in the early days although they also protected against rope burn and absorb sweat.
