And, only had '15-bouts', 15-0-0 (10 KO's).

Another '6' bouts and 18 months, wouldn't have hurt, only helped.

They should have picked his opponents, by using a little 'wit'.

But, the 'nose candy' problem was getting out-of-control.
I remember reading an interview with Lou Duva who said they rushed into the Tyson bout to cash in as Tyrell was an accident waiting to happen.
