Mike Tyson is probably the most famous boxer and the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. He was born in 1966 in Brooklyn and grew up there alongside his elder sister and brother. He started training in boxing when he was 10 years old, and in the early 1980s, he began joining some amateur competitions, as well as winning a few serious professional competitions. In 1986, when Tyson was 20 years old, he won his first WBC title becoming the youngest World Champion in the whole history of professional boxing. Two years later Tyson won his first title of the lineal champion which he further defended 9 times. The early 1990s were marked with a conviction and spending a few years in prison, but the late 1990s brought Tyson a few important victories, including regaining the World Champion title back which only a few boxers have ever managed to achieve.
Two historic fights took place in about those times; the one between Tyson and Holyfield in 1997 when Tyson received disqualification for biting his opponent's ear. The other one took place in 2002 when Tyson managed to regain the World Champion title again, at the age of 35. Shortly after, Tyson started suffering from serious financial problems and announced his retirement. For the last 15 years, the boxer has been involved in a number of charity and social projects, as well in taking part in TV and cinema projects. Mike Tyson is a cult personality whose contribution to the development of modern professional boxing is huge. He has a large number of awards and fans around the world.
