Despite the fact that most world-class boxers run up to 10 miles every morning, Tyson wouldnt be a distance athlete for sure
But then again, neither is Mark "water boy on anything other than dead flat" Cavendish
However, look at Tyson as a youngster - an incredibly explosive athlete with great endurance
Saying he couldnt last a mile is just nonsense
