Mike Tyson is arguably one of the greatest boxers of all time, he competed from 1985 and put his mitts down in 2005. His overall career record was forty-nine wins, four losses, and forty-three knockouts! By 1986, at the age of 20, Tyson had garnered a 22-0 record (all but one from K.O.). Mike Tyson joined Floyd Patterson, Muhammad Ali, Tim Witherspoon, Evander Holyfield, and George Foreman as the only men in boxing history to have regained a heavyweight championship after having lost it – in Mike’s case, he defended it nine times!

With as phenomenal of a tribute as that, we’re assuming the legendary boxer is okay with them after all.
