Hey guys, I've been wondering this for a long time. I know he won the National Golden Gloves so before anyone says "He was successful as an amateur' and he was, but he wasn't as successful as he was in the pro ranks. As a pro he stormed through everyone so why didn't he have this kind of success as an amateur? In the amateurs he still had D'Mato with him. What stood out to me is that Tyson lost to Henry Tillman twice as an amateur but he clobbered him in one round in their rematch in the pro's... I have a feeling it was because of Tyson's style which didn't lend itself for success in the amateurs. The best amateur style seems to be the point based style used by the K-Brothers where they use jabs and straight punches from a distance to continually score points.
