Fenech and Tyson became friend because they fought on the same cards under Don King. Nelson Fenech 1 and 2 were on the Ruddock undercards I believe.
Fenech was a horrible trainer for Tyson.

Nelson V Fenech II took place in Australia but their first bout was on the Tyson V Ruddock card.

He made Snowell & Bright seem like genius trainers in comparison, what with his awful arm-punching advice.

I hear they also both ate at least one of Lennox Lewis' imaginary children together. Tyson, because he felt like he was obligated to, Fenech A. out of solidarity and B. he already ate real children as part of his dietary regimen.

To be fair to Jeff it wasn't really his fault. Tyson completely didn't give a **** by that point.

Tyson could've had Angelo Dundee,Manny Steward,Kevin Rooney and Jack Blackburn in his corner against McBride and it wouldn't have made a whit of difference. He didn't want to be there and didn't care if he won or loss. No trainer can do anything with fighter with that mind set.
