Promoter Mike Tyson and ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas have had a frosty relationship ever since an 1982 incident in upstate New York when Tyson is said to have inappropriately touched a female relative of Atlas and Teddy retaliated by threatening Tyson at gunpoint. However the two shared an embrace before Friday night’s fight card at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, NY. Tyson later said in an interview with ESPN’s Todd Grisham, “Life is short. I made amends with everybody.”

Looking on is Joe Colangelo, an old friend of Cus D’Amato who facilitated the “reunion.”
