He would train the young boxer for several years, dying just months before Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in history.In Iron Ambition, Tyson shares the life lessons that D'Amato passed down to him and reflects on how the trainer's words of wisdom continue to resonate with him outside the ring.
