..............Not so strange, considering Atlas had helped train Tyson, along with their common mentor, Cus D'Amato, in upstate NY in the early 1980s. But the falling out between Atlas and Tyson was explosive.
Atlas, in his biography, recalled that he reacted heatedly after he found out that the young boxer, then age 15, had approached a young girl, who was a relative of Atlas' wife, in a crude manner. Atlas borrowed a .38 from a pal, tracked down Tyson one night in 1982, told him to smarten up, and fired the gun, deliberately missing, for emphasis. That was the end of Atlas helping Tyson learn the ropes.
...........They haven't had a relationship, save for maybe a nod at a charity dinner, since the blowup.
Until Friday. Tyson, before the show started, came up to Atlas at his station. "He behaved like a man, what can I say," Atlas recollected to partner Joe Tessitore. "He came over, extended his hand and asked me if I'd shake it and said, 'You're not still mad at me, are you? I wish you wouldn't be'. ... I give him credit for showing a gentleman's side."
six days and he is never gonna use again, he is probably drunk right now
Captain America's been torn apart, now he's a court jester with a broken heart/he said "Turn me around and take me back to the start/I must be losing my mind, are you blind? I've seen it all a million times"
No it wasn't... Mike Tyson is the most overhyped average fighter ever. "His Prime" was more or less before he was exposed! Look at who he fought in this amazing prime (1985-1989) They are ALL ESPN/USA Boxing level crack heads who never did shit in their career OR Larry Holmes era fighters all in their 30's past their primes getting one last payday. After that he was exposed, when it was his actual age era he lost to those guys or ducked those guys or paid those guys off to not fight him.
