Mike Tyson vs…? seemed to be the question the boxing world asked during the undefeated mean streak of iron mikes career. Putting the best against the best is the reason any sport exists. Especially in boxing where some boxers reputations are that of gods. When the champion knows he is champ for a reason and will accept any challenge with no fear of losing. Each match is a new proving ground where boxers make and break their careers.
Mike Tyson vs Evander Holyfield, the fight where Mike bit a chunk of his opponents ear off in the middle of a match is the fight tyson is most famous for.
In the 3rd round is when mike took the first bite and surprisingly the fight continued after a brief timeout. After the second bite the fight was stopped and after a ruling was discontinued.
The result of this near cannibalistic showmanship was tyson’s boxing licence being revoked and a more than 3 million dollar fine. A little over a year later his licence was restored.
Hopefully he has learned to control his anger and from different interviews it seems he has.
I guess we never know what to expect from him
Fed up with getting slapped around like a little girl by EvanderHolyfield, Tyson barbarically bites a chunk of Holyfields ear off changing his life forever
and exposing the true insanity brewing in his head.
Mike vs Tyson.
In this movie “Mike vs Tyson” the director delves into the greatest battle of Mikes life, him vs himself. I found that this film did not meet the hype. It failed to penetrate mikes iron exterior even though it did show him doing everyday tasks like shopping.
I suggest watching the latest film on mike which I believe is self titled which I found far more entertaining and informative than this one.
Mike Tyson the knock out king Tyson is probably most famous for his knockout power. No boxer was knocking people out as fast and as viciously as he was. The above video is an excellent demonstration of his shocking power and the many victims knocked unconscious by him.
Punching Power takes years of training and discipline to master as a true boxer puts his entire body behind his punches. It helps being built like a brick house too.

Mike Tyson Training

mike’s coaches who pushed him to the extremes that he exhibited in the ring when he was on
top of his game.
Even though he is not in the ring anymore he still maintains frequent training.

This is a fight I would love to see. During one of Bob Sapp’s fights after he had knocked his opponent out, Bob and Mike Tyson began exchanging words from mikes seat in the crowd
