Re: Cus D'Amato's Style not used anymore?
Patterson and Tyson are the youngest Heavyweight champions.
Patterson became champion at 21 and lost to Liston at 27.
Tyson became champion at 20 and lost to Douglas at 24 and again to Holyfield at 29.
I bring this up because it seems that the D'Amato system requires a lot of movement. Something that is a lot easier for someone who is young to do than someone who is older. In otherwords it is a style that can't be sustained througout an entire career.
