Default Teddy Atlas and Mike Tyson

I recently watched a documentary on Mike Tyson called Fallen Champ: The Untold Story of Mike Tyson. In this movie I learned about when Atlas was working as a trainer with Cus D'Amato at his Catskill Boxing Club. After Cus brought Tyson up to his house in Catskill Mike became a fairly okay kid. But after winning the Junior Olympics he started to become pretty full of himself. It was at this time that Cus started to let Mike do whatever he wanted to. Mike made "lewd and sexual comments" toward a very young girl that Atlas knew. That night when Atlas found out he took him to the empty boxing gym and held a gun to Mike's head and told him that he needed to stop. Three days later Atlas was fired.

This was news to me anyone else?

Yeah it's pretty well known.

I'm no fan of Atlas (hypocrite and an overrated trainer), but I don't really blame him for doing what he did.

He's a nutjob too, from what I've heard.

That "very young girl" was Atlas' stepdaughter, and Tyson grabbed her butt.

It was his cousin, and that was a very cowardly act threathening a 15 year old kid with a gun.

A 15 year old Tyson is still like built larger than the average adult male and was trained to hurt people.

But a 15year old Tyson was the size of a 25 year old man!

I never heard this story before I saw the movie. I talked to a few other semi-fans and none of them had heard it either. I guess we're living in a boxing news bubble. Thanks fellas.
