Default Would Tyson succeed even if he never met Cus?

I mean he has the perfect body for boxing but Cus customized the peek-a-boo style especially for Tyson. What if he had a different trainer?

They don't make trainers like Cus D'Amato anymore. He was a psychologist, mentor, dreamer and a sage.

He would never have got near a professional ring if he hadn't met Cus.

Do you think Thomas Hearns would have been so good if he was born with a spoon instead of a right hand?

Yep.

You'll find maybe fifteen guys you can have a productive discussion with. The poster quoted above, being one of them.

Well....for the sake of answering you. No.

Cus made him. He gave Tyson what he and everybody really needs and thats direction. Mike with no direction is the epitome of a spiral out of control. He had no understanding of self and that left him doing whatever he felt like doing. Cus trained him, nurtured him, advised him and believed in him.


It actually makes no sense to ask this because without Cus.....his career fell apart. So there goes your answer in many forms

What about me?
I'm ****ing productive. Did you read my break downs of

Prime Lewis vs other ATGS? Those breakdowns were insane boxing knowledge.


Do you wanna hear my breakdown of Spinks vs Jones??

Great thread btw.

Don't listen to all the moron haters. You tend to get a lot of these moronic so called boxing experts on here that I reguarly destroy.

Like when I called it that Ivan Cauldron was gonna get knocked out or tkoed... Nobody believed me, but he did...



Anyways.. To answer the original brillant thread question.

No he won't. Another trainer could not do with Tyson what Cus did.

Cus was to Tyson what Steward was to Hearns-Wlad.


I think Lewis could have survived with another trainer because he was just that great, he would have adjusted because of his own greatness.

But not Tyson, Tyson was a level below so he needed a CERTAIN type of trainer to guide him and stroke him.


I did hear rumors that Cus was a pedo.... hopefuly that's not true because that is GROSS.

I hate pedos.
