Tyson is a former undisputed heavyweight champion of the planet and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles at 20 years, 4 months and 22 days old. Tyson won his very first 19 specialist bouts by knockout, with 12 of them occurring in the initial round. He won the WBC title in 1986 following defeating Trevor Berbick by a TKO in the second round. In 1987, Tyson added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker. He was the initial heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles, and the only heavyweight to individually unify them.

In 1988, Tyson became the lineal champion when he knocked out Michael Spinks in the 1st 91 seconds of the fight. Tyson effectively defended the planet heavyweight championship nine times, including victories over Larry Holmes and Frank Bruno. Tyson lost his titles to 42-to-1 underdog James “Buster” Douglas on February 11, 1990, in Tokyo, Japan, by a knockout in round ten. Tyson continued in his quest to regain the titles, defeating Donovan Ruddock twice in 1991. Tyson was then scheduled to take on the undisputed heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield but pulled out due to injury.
In 1992, Tyson was convicted of raping Desiree Washington, for which he was sentenced to six years in prison but was released right after serving three years. Soon after his release, he engaged in a series of comeback fights. In 1996, Tyson won the WBC and WBA titles soon after defeating Frank Bruno and Bruce Seldon by knockout. After being stripped of the WBC title, Tyson lost his WBA crown to Evander Holyfield in November 1996 by an 11th round TKO. Their 1997 rematch ended when Tyson was disqualified for biting off part of Holyfield’s ear.

In 2002, he fought for the world heavyweight title at the age of 35, losing by knockout to Lennox Lewis. Tyson retired from specialist boxing in 2006 following he was knocked out in consecutive matches against Danny Williams and Kevin McBride. Tyson declared bankruptcy in 2003, despite having received more than US$30 million for a number of of his fights and $300 million for the duration of his profession.

  1. Tyson, basically a man with potential for good intentions, hell of a successful boxer with hard puches with a huge ass and upper thighs for power behind his fists.

  2. If I’m married my wife and kids will have say so over my money and some of it at that the mother in law shouldn’t have a dang thing to say. unless you hire that person to do that job they should remain quiet. I’ll take advice not decisions.

  3. That  fight with Holyfield  can you imagine the people who laid the money down on Tyson  bettr yet the people who put money down on Holyfield   I don’t no what the odds were

  4. the best education you could ever get is on the streets! schools ok but the doesn’t show you what real lifes about

  5. I swear u cannot watch a single video without white ppl bringing up race in the comments..wtf does race have to do with this?!?? y’all are fuckin obsessed

  6. really great documentary. Tyson to me is one of the best, most fearful fighters I have ever seen, but also one of the most wasted talents I have ever seen. his whole career is a big ‘what if…’, many within but just as many not within Tyson’s control. such a mesmerising start, such a wasteful, embarrassing end.

  7. Robin, her mom and Don King "killed" Mike Tyson, they didn’t see the man they saw the dollars, dollars, dollars… I don’t believe one minute he was beating that bitch…ugh!

  8. the people out there, who piss Mike Tyson off try me out, love to you Mike Tyson, take care lots of love x

  9. I highly DISAGREE!. Because cus D amoto had trained many people and only made 3 legends ONLY!. And ONLY ONE! really commonly heard OF! (Mike Tyson) mainly. And cus only adopted Tyson because; for one thing cus was broke! "(according to the movie Tyson)"… And cus and the rest of them gangster goyims (Cus, Bill Cayton and them) had an agenda just like king. Because they knew besides Tyson’s talent, Tyson had character!… They seen $$$ signs. So the ONLY! REAL DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE OLD "BLACK" MAN MADE HIM RICH!!!; AND THE OLD "WHITE" ONE COULDN’T!!!.

    SO! IT’S SO FACTO ON THE CONTRARY! DON KING MADE IRON MIKE TYSON.

    AND ALLOW ME TO REMIND EVERYONE READING THIS THAT, "IRON" WAS NOT TYSON’S ALIAS UNTIL, HE GOT BIG WITH DON KING!. WHEN HE (TYSON) WAS WITH KEVIN ROONEY AND CUS, TYSON WAS STILL BEING ADDRESSED BY THE BOXING WORLD AS MIKE GERALD TYSON!!!…

    ALL CREDIT/PRAISES BE TO ALLAH!. THIS IS GODS PLAN OVERALL!!!.

  10. what a waste of a gift, Don King you have ruined him, and he still forgive you? you have got love from me Mike, take care

  11. God… if he had considered at least a little education he wouldn’t have sunked so low! this is the problem with people having so much money without brains..

  12. Iron Mike is a rare boxing champion the world has known. His tragic flaw was his own lapse of self control.He was more sinned against than sinning, I can say! He has seen the ups and downs of his career no boxer has ever had. He could be easily irritated and he thus he himself let others to gain over him. He was exploited not by his Manager Mr King but many of his " friends ". It’s a pity to see this Super Star who reigned supreme in the Realm of Boxing fall to the bottoms of penury and defamation as " Mr Nobody " to talk about in exulted terms. The truth is nobody can break Iron Mike’s Track Records. But Mike Tyson lives on…! May God bestow upon him all the peace, power and prosperity he needs now.

  13. Mike Tyson had every opportunity to change his life , but CHOSE to be a criminal after CUS have him a chance. Floyd Paterson took his chance and made a great life for himself. Sonny Liston had no opportunity to get easy from the mob who tool him over. Tyson is always the victim. He’s a rapist , a thug a criminal he has a criminal mentality.

  14. I honestly don’t think Robin Givens demands of taking over Tyson’s career was bad. After all she was his wife, and any money she tried to get her hands on was legally, equally Tyson’s money as well being that they were a married couple. It was Don King and everybody else who were really the outsiders.

  15. fuck Larry!!! Larry is a nerd and loser!! Once again…. Larry is a Loser! Once again Larry is a Loser! My name is Rich McCready ! I am saying Larry is a Loser! larry is a Loser!

  16. My mother told me that most people believed back when he was on trial that he was innocent. And it wasn’t unfounded like there’s so much evidence that she consented. What a shame.

  17. Tyson could of been the greatest of all time he only lost to himself, those bitchs and Don did not help, but Tyson had no mental ability to control himself either, bloody shame,

  18. and for the rape….!!!!..BS…some fuckers promised her millions to take MIKE down,king was probably the master mind……
