Who’s Mike Tyson and Mike Tyson’s famous bite ? (Part 2)

Life and career 

At the age of 20, 4 months and 22 days, Mike Tyson had a rain of triumph as he won his first 19 career Knockout matches, 12 of which were determined to draw and lose in the first half. 

In 1986, after beating boxer Trevor Berbick by TKO (Knockout) in the second round, he captured the WBC Championship.

In 1987, Tyson went on to win two more WBA and IBF championships against James Smith and Tony Tucker. Tyson is also the first boxer to hold all three WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight title titles. 

It wasn’t until 1988, though, that Mike Tyson was properly remembered and championed the title after beating Michael Spinks in the 91st second. Known for this title, Mike Tyson has successfully defended his belt of championships nine times, including a wide-ranging win over Larry Holmes and Frank Bruno.

But just two years later (1990), after losing to boxer James “Buster” Douglas in the 10th round with Knockout, he lost the championship. But in just two years, Tyson had to go to the ring 9 times, which is a pretty huge amount for a martial artist today (currently each famous boxer like Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao also only competes 1 years from 2 to 3 games is much).

You will see how competitive the 8X Boxing years were

Trying to take back the titles, Mike Tyson managed to defeat boxer Donovan Ruddock twice in 1991, but then he lost to the heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield because he was too strong that makes Mike Tyson 2 times the damage. 

In 1992, Mike Tyson was sentenced to six years in jail by the Desiree Washington judge, but was released after three years of re-education. Since his release from jail, Mike went back to a series of matches to get his name back. 

In 1996, after beating two boxers Frank Bruno and Bruce Seldon with TKO, he regained the WBC and WBA championships.

Mike Tyson‘s real name is Michael Gerard Tyson, born on June 30, 1966, a retired American boxer. 

Tyson was born in Brooklyn, New York City, USA. He has a sibling named Rodney who is five years older. His sister Denise died of heart disease at the age of 24 in 1990.

Father Mike left his mother and daughter after Tyson was born and his mother took care of him. Then Kirkpatrick- Father Mike Tyson died back in 1992. 

Tyson’s family lived in Bedford-Stuyvesant, but moved to Brownsville due to financial hardship when he was 10 years old. And six years after his mother died at the age of 16, Mike was run by a boxing promoter called Cus D’Amato, who became Mike’s legal guardian.

Most of Mike Tyson’s youth has been in juvenile jail or hanging around with links with these locations. Bobby Stewart recognised Tyson as a special fighter and trained Mike for a few months before taking him to Cus D’Amato (this is a man who profoundly shaped the thought and career of Mike Tyson’s life, Mike’s style logo is made up of this man).

Mike was an absolute heavyweight boxing champion, the youngest boxer ever to win the WBC, WBA and IBF championships at the age of 20, 4 months and 22 days. 

Tyson is known both inside and outside the ring for his ferocious and threatening boxing style as well as his controversial behavior. Nicknamed “The Baddest Man on the Planet” “Kid Dynamite” and “Iron Mike” Tyson is generally recognized as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time. 

He ranked 16th in the 100 Greatest Punches of All Time in the Ring, and No. 1 in the category of “strongest puncher in heavy boxing history” on ESPN.com.
