@MikeTyson left behind a turbulent young life when at age 14 he moved upstate from Brooklyn to Catskill NY where he trained at Cus D’Amato’s legendary boxing gym It was the early 1980s Kid Dynamite was a kid from the streets of Brooklyn he had that comical high-pitched voice and accompanying lisp dabbled in pigeons and put the Catskills on the map as some hallowed place on earth where - that legendary trainer - an old sage Cus D’Amato transformed troubled boys into supermen Those long days at the Catskill gym moulded that troubled boy into a human wrecking ball that made everybody before him seem outdated like relics of the old days — things that were invented for him to tear through Who knew that this young Kid Dynamite would soon dominate boxing as the Baddest Man On The Planet? - Cus knew - A boy comes to me with a spark of interest I feed the spark and it becomes a flame I feed the flame and it becomes a fire I feed the fire and it becomes a roaring blaze – Cus D’Amato _________________________________ New Catskills Thermal is available now Link in Bio RootsofFight KnowYourRoots KidDynamite BMOTP Meme
