Mike Tyson visits Yonkers PAL boxers

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson visited Steiner Sports Memorabilia headquarters in New Rochelle Thursday to meet some Yonkers PAL boxers.



Steiner Sports owner Brandon Steiner set up the meeting with Tyson, hoping that it would benefit the boxers both inside and outside of the ring.



"He did a lot of great things, he's a great athlete and he also made a lot of stupid, dumb mistakes, and I think its important to see both sides of that and they learn from that," he said.



Steiner also helped fund a trip for the PAL team to go to California for a national boxing tournament. It cost roughly $10,000.
