Tyson had the best team behind him that he could have hoped for, I know cause I was there. Doc
+1 to this ... this badmouthing of jimmy jacobs in this thread is kinda pissing me off to be honest - if he tried to get as much influence into cayton's hands before he died I'd say he was right on the track, better cayton than king thats for sure - cayton was an honest guy who played straight, he took his fair share after tyson made it, as did the team, but why shouldn't they? without them, tyson would have been dead or seeing out a life term in prison before he reached 20, with them he became the undisputed champion of the world and the richestest sportsman on the planet ... if that's screwing the guy give me some of that! ... King is the screw job artist not cayton and certainly not jacobs

I feel as though the the major issue here is not being adressed. Jacobs should have told Mike about his illness as well as the specific contracts he was making him sign. You must understand that at that time Mike must have felt not only heartbroken but maybe deceived as well, and if this was Jim's way of keeping Mike tied to Cayton and the rest of the team, can you really consider that a good way of handling the situation?

And House of Stone, nobody should ever badmouth Jimmy Jacobs. I have massive amounts of respect for him and believe he is the most underappriciated Boxing historian ever. All boxing fans should be thankful to his great work in finding and collecting classic fights that may have been lost forever if it wasn't for him.

Tyson did wrong by a lot of his people (the ones Cus told him to trust incidentally) and despite all his later reform still hasn't owned up in this area.
