The youngest boxer to ever win the world heavyweight titles in IBF, WBA and WBC when he was just 20 years, 4 months and 22 days old, Michael Gerard Tyson or popularly known as Mike Tyson was born on the 30th of June 1966. This retired American boxer defeated in the second by a Technical Knockout Trevor Berbick and got the WBC title. In his entire boxing career, Tyson became not only popular because of his intimidating and ferocious boxing style but also because of his controversial behavior out and in the boxing ring.
The youngest man to be an undisputed heavyweight champion and to ever be the first heavy, weight boxer to simultaneously win the WBC, IBF and WBA titles, Tyson is widely regarded to be the one of the all time greatest heavyweight boxers, truly as remarkable as Manny Pacquiao.
With the monikers Iron Mike and Kid Dynamite, he won by knockout his first 19 professional boxing bouts, 12 of which happened in the first round. He also became the lineal champion when he knocked out in the fight’s first 91 seconds his competitor Michael Spinks. However, in Tokyo, Japan on February 11, 1990, Tyson lost all of his titles to Buster Douglas, a 42-to-1 underdog. He landed on the 16th spot in the list of Ring Magazine of the 100 all time greatest punchers. For all of his admirers, Tyson’s collectibles and those from Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier are already made accessible.
Mike Tyson’s name is sometimes erroneously spelled as Mikee Tyson, Micke Tyson, Miyk Tyson, Mike Tayson, Mike Teyson, Mike Tysonn and Mike Tysoun.
