Quote: Actually, fighting skills do not automatically equate to communication skills needed to teach, or even a deep technical understanding. Who would you have rather taken boxing lessons from - Mike Tyson the champ or Cus D'Amato?
I dont think it was just Cus D,Amato who trained Mike Tyson. There were a whole heap of other people involved with their experiences. Look at the difference in styles between Floyd Patterson and Tyson. I dont mean their physical or mental make up.
One of the main communication of boxing skills to Tyson was made by Tyson . He studied the art of boxing as well as being trained.
