"The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero uses his fear, projects it onto his opponent, while the coward runs. It's the same thing, fear, but it's what you do with it that matters."                      Cus D`Amato

Cus D`Amato was legendary American boxing trainer. He trained the youngest world`s boxing super-heavy weight champions. Including Mike Tyson and Floyd Patterson .

Cus D'Amato was born in 1908 in New York in an Italian family of immigrants. He was one of eight brothers. In his childhood he dreamed of becoming a boxer like his big brother Jerry

At 12 years old he take part in the street fight with the adult man. After it he became a blind to one eye forever. But his love for boxing was such strong that he involved his life with the sport. It's interesting, that the person, who never boxed, made  three world's boxing super-heavy weight champions!                        

Cus rescued America from the young criminals. His gym was located on the second floor a building, and on the first there was a police office. Many students rose from the ground floor to the second. He created a study about fear, which he was used in the training of boxers.

He enter in the history as the unbalanced and unsociable wise man. He did not like strangers, and he associated with close people. After a conflict with the mafia, Cus was afraid of killers all life. He died in 77 years (1985) after the inflammation of lungs.
