Mike Tyson is a former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and holds the record as the youngest boxer every to win the title. Cus D’Amato was his legendary trainer. A story from Mike’s youth:
Mike Tyson: I hated doing chores; I was so focused on my boxing. One day Cus came to me.
Cus: “You know, Camille really wants you to do your chores. I could care less if you did, but you should do them because it will make you a better boxer.
Mike Tyson: “How’s taking out the trash going to make me a better boxer?” I scoffed.
Cus: “Because doing something you hate to do like you love it is good conditioning for someone aspiring towards greatness.”
Mike Tyson: After that, Camille never had to remind me to do my chores again.
