Cus D'Amato would've been 106 today!

One of the greatest boxing coaches ever IMO. His innate understanding that boxing was more mental than physical was unheard of. His identification of Fear being a major factor in the training of a fighter set him apart from the other coaches. Sadly, he passed away at the age of 77 from pneumonia and never got to see his protege, Mike Tyson, win the Heavyweight Championship.

Happy Birthday Cus!
