If Kevin Rooney had stayed with Tyson, how would things have been different?

After Tyson fired Kevin Rooney, things went straight into the toilet. People forget, but Tyson was a supremely skilled boxer, he wasn't just a thug in the ring. But after Rooney left his corner, he stopped moving his head, he stopped setting guys up and he became a head-hunter in the ring. He went from fighting once every five weeks to once ever six months. All of these things were major parts of Tyson's downfall. In an interview, Rooney said that his dream with Tyson was to have him retire 100-0. If he had stayed would that have been possible? How do you think Tyson's career would have been different had Kevin Rooney never left?

Everything would still have been much the same or very close. Tyson was headed for a fall anyway. Kevin didn't leave, he was fired. It's the cheezyass way Mike fired him that lead to his downfall... More
