Nice Get Fight Dr

Scott,

Congrats on the interview with Teddy Atlas. Very impressive and very well done. I'm nowhere near the fight fan you are, but I do enjoy it and I could read/listen to Atlas for hours. I have a feeling you'd never get bored and I have a feeling the guy is just sick when he's in the gym. I doubt he had to say anything more than once to get someone's attention.

Jesus, his passion on broadcasts and in interviews comes through loud and clear.

Again, nice, nice job getting that interview.

Thanks a lot, easily my favorite of all the ones I have done.
I had the pleasure to speak to him for over an hour and a half.
Classy guy that knows 100 times more than I already thought.

Spoon,

Have you read "Atlas- From the Streets to the Ring: A Son's Struggle to Become a Man" ?

Just finished it. Very entertaining book and a great background on Atlas. Never realized where he came from or how he ended up in the Catskills with Cus D'amato. Also never realized his hatred for Donny LaLonde was so intense that he admittedly went to kill him.

Taking Michael Moorer to the title twice was a feat in itself too. Interesting relationship and tactics.

Also talks about his 'friendship' with Sammy "The Bull" Gravano.

Not sure how many folks have an interest but the book is a quick read and extremely entertaining. Atlas has a deep and unbreakable code and belief system that he just won't abandon. And according to interviews and other items I've read on the guy it ain't bullshit.
"Great minds think alike. The opposite is also true."

"None of us is as dumb as all of us."
