On the 27th of October the scientific group of Ph.D Oleg Maltsev came to New York to meet with Tom Patti and to set up the basic for the book. New York is the city where the key stage for preparation of the book is to be done.
“As a scientist I studied the phenomenon of Cus D’Amato for more than 20 years. Here in New York, where the great master Cus D’Amato lived and worked, we are setting up the basis of the book about his secret style “Peekaboo”. As the co-author and the consultant of the book will be Tom Patti. He had been living and training with Cus D’Amato for many years. That is why the book will describe the style “Peekaboo” in complex – from scientific point and from practical point.” (Ph.D Oleg Maltsev)
Legendary American boxing trainer, who nurtured a lot of fighters in the professional boxing including Floyd Patterson, Jose Torres and Mike Tyson. The aim of Cus was helping difficult children from poor families. All he asked in return for his lessons (Cus was not only a boxing coach, first of all he wanted to develop the personality of a teenager) was helping around the house. One of his students was Kevin Rooney, “Golden Gloves” champion in 1975. Growing up in a family of alcoholics, Rooney became a devoted boy of D’Amato. It was he, who has continued the legacy of the old mentor and led Tyson to the championship title.
