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.

How strong is Roy Jones Jr, Mike Tyson’s next rival?

For boxing fans, Roy Jones is a legend, a king on maps, but for outsiders, Roy Jones is possibly a weird name. 

Roy Jones Jr, the boxer who once won the world belt in four weight divisions continued to fight until 2018 before declaring his retirement. The American puncher is renowned for its speedy, versatile, yet equally effective attack escape.

Roy Jones, ranked as one of the best boxing champions in the history of boxing in the world, has been the dominant star on the P4P charts since the 1990s. Midweight junior until the peak time of semi heavy weight.

Roy Jones Jr. captivates audiences with pace moves, crazy coloring tricks and even centimeter corner twists. Roy Jones’ fighting style is peculiar, with bizarre blows that are far from traditional boxing. Owing to such an innate beauty, he is a one-time boxing world superstar.

In the past, many fans have asked whether Roy Jones could beat Mike Tyson, only regretting that Roy Jones’ most prolific time was when Mike Tyson went to prison. Continuously and start to drop into the form. Therefore even though they were just three years apart, they never had the chance to challenge each other.

It’s worth noting that Mike Tyson has only returned after 15 years of retirement, and Roy Jones is still persistent until 2018 and still has a KO against young opponents. In terms of advantage, Roy Jones seems to be the leading player in the coming game.

Before the fight, Mike Tyson was more appreciative of the betting community because of his physical advantage and superior knockout capability. On the opposite, Roy Jones’ win percentage was in favour of the next half due to the benefit of stamina due to his daily practice and competitiveness in recent years.

Mike Tyson was warned by Joshua

Contemporary 4-belt champion Anthony Joshua warns Mike Tyson not to misunderstand strength.

On September 12, legendary Mike Tyson officially returned after 14 years away from the professional stage. Although playing only a friendly match against another famous American puncher, Roy Jones Jr (51 years old), this match has a greater attraction than many contemporary matches, even it can drawing more viewers than the rematch between Fury and Wilder takes place at the end of the year.

The British boxer, Anthony Joshua, who holds 4 heavy belts (WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO), has mixed feelings with the return of his beloved idol: Mike Tyson. He was happy to see one of the most influential fighters in his career, but also worried about the health of the fist turned 54 years old.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the 30-year-old boxer said: “You watched the performance video on social networks and you thought,” He has regained his form, every element of the competition. “But the performance clip (by Mike Tyson) is like a football veteran performing a kicking technique on the crossbar.He had a very good performance during training, those who watched to feel he could return to the heavyweight championship belt, but The reality will be different”.

Advising idols, Joshua continued to shape Tyson not to compete with contemporary boxers. “Tyson started playing at the age of 13. And Jones’ father turned him into a great fist. That’s all I know about them. They shouldn’t compete with young boxers, it’s those who “Lions”. We are taller, stronger, and more helped by modern training technology”.

Previously, Tyson had undergone 12-month training, helping him lose more than 30 kg, now returning to his playing weight, which is why many people recommend him to return to the top of the game. As a top-ranked boxer, Joshua has a strong grasp of the current punches so he doesn’t want to idolize Mike Tyson.

“If Tyson returns to any of his contemporaries, to satisfy his love of the sport. I am very welcome and hope that this will be a highlight to help boxing become more and more popular”, the 30-year-old British boxer closed the interview.
