“I was petrified when I was alone with him. If he called me – ‘Mike, I need to talk to you’ – I didn’t feel good going over to him. That’s when he’d start giving me his detailed criticisms of my fights. My knockout ability is through Cus D’Amato telling me repetitiously over and over again to do this movement and to punch with this type of bad intentions. And just to have ferociousness and mean intentions whenever you throw punches and stuff. And try and punch through your opponent, not at him. It was some nasty stuff that I would never tell my kids to do”. Said Mike Tyson to Gq magazine.

Tyson holds the record for the youngest ever heavyweight champion of all time. A lot of his success could be attributed to the legendary trainer. Mike revealed a lot of his ego and his insane personality was because of Cus. Tyson developed an insane sense of self-belief due to D’Amato, and it proved to be his biggest strength and weakness during his career.

Tyson got involved in several off the ring incidents, and it derailed the rest of his career. Iron Mike’s life was embroiled in controversy and it took him many years to make a comeback.
Mike is finally set to make his return to the ring, and fight fans are itching to see who he faces for his comeback.
