Quick Tillis Got Iron Mike's Respect: Quote Spotlight

In August of 2014, Mike Tyson sat in on FS1's broadcast of Sammy Vazquez VS James Stevenson, as commentator and Vazquez representative. During the fourth round, Mike had an interesting exchange where he gave his old opponent, James Tillis, some props for damage done.

In text: 

Raul Marquez:
"Mike, were you ever hurt by body shots in your career?"

Mike Tyson:

"Absolutely- James Tillis. When I fought James Tillis-When I fought James Tillis, oh, man, I couldn't even move. I went straight from the fight right to the bedroom."

This was the twentieth fight of Mike's career, and Tillis was the very first to take him the distance. It was scheduled for 10.
