A quote from the new Roots of Fight short film on “Iron” Mike Tyson. Mike on “Cus” D’Amato: “This fuckin’ old, white Italian guy had put me on this mission. He didn’t know me! He put me on this mission said you’ll win the local championship, you’ll win the regionals, you’ll win the nationals, you’ll win the Olympics, you’ll be the youngest heavyweight champion of all time.

Like two pirates venturing off together to capture our riches and decimate anyone who stood in our way.”
