A note from Mike Tyson:

“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support for the release of my new book, Iron Ambition, which gives an insight into my mentor Cus D’Amato’s teachings and his life.  Unfortunately, I have been dealing with issues due to a recent injury and am unable to travel to the East Coast for my scheduled press tour.  The last thing I ever want to do is disappoint my supporters or not honor scheduled commitments but I physically am not able to travel.  I am resting now and promise to get well soon so that I can talk about this amazing book and meet up with you guys on the road.  Again thank you and Happy Memorial Day.”
