My #idol @miketyson spoke the truth and kept it real like he always does!! That’s why I love the #goat the best heavyweight in the history of heavyweight#boxing#tbe lots of haters discredit @mannypacquiao now bcuz he doesn’t get as much knockouts anymore but look he’s still knocking guys down 2/3 times each guy he fights is younger than the #pacman and he’s still whooping ass in style and #winning giving guys their first losses! Against #jeffhorn we all know he got robbed!! Teddy atlas told Jeff in his face “u know u lost tonight right” #teddyatlas also keeps it real that’s what I love about him! And before the fight started soon as I saw @mannypacquiao face I just knew in my gut that tonight he will finally get a KO after 9yrs and he sure delivered a KO stoppage #victory in the 7th round plus he looked great!! I even made a bet and won $200 bucks here’s proof! #boxing#mannypaquiao#knockout#miketyson#10timeworldchampion#8differentweightdivisions#phillippines#brooklyn#goat
Though Horn gave the aging Manny Pacquiao a difficult fight, this will not be the same in his fight versus Terrance Crawford. Not taking anything from Horn but it's hard not to agree with the great Teddy Atlas. What do you, the fan, think? Will Horn bring Bud Crawford his first loss or is this easy work for the Nebraska native? #crawfordhorn#boxinglyfestyle#espn#terrancecrawford#teddyatlas#jeffhorn#mgm

Atlas trained as an amateur boxer with Hall of Fametrainer Cus D'Amato. He had some amateur fights but had to turn to work as a trainer due to a back injury. Atlas was an assistant to D'Amato, although his role in the Catskill Boxing Club was short-lived. His duties included assisting in the training of D'Amato's teenage protégé Mike Tyson. However, Atlas left the camp in 1982 following an altercation with the 15-year-old Tyson after Tyson had been sexually inappropriate with an 11-year-old female relative of Atlas' (Tyson said he had grabbed the girl's buttocks). Atlas put a .38 caliber handgun to Tyson's ear and told him to never touch his family again, or he would kill him if he did. This altercation between Atlas and a young Mike Tyson led to Atlas' dismissal from the Catskill Boxing Club, and he was told he was no longer welcome in D'Amato's home or around any of his adopted children (his fighters whom he had legally adopted, Tyson included).
Atlas enjoyed his biggest success as head trainer to Michael Moorer, whom he guided to the world heavyweight title in 1994. He drew criticism for what some considered to be overly dramatic speeches in the ring corner, particularly during Moorer's heavyweight title fight with Evander Holyfield, and some felt he did this to draw attention to himself rather than help his fighter. During one such speech, Atlas blocked Moorer from sitting on his stool and asked, "Do you want me to take over?" Atlas has denied this, stating that he did what he believed the fighter needed based on his understanding of the fighter. Moorer went on to defeat Holyfield by a majority decision.
