Mike Tyson was a rich man who was worth almost $400 million during the heydays of his boxing career. His earnings came from his boxing matchups and the stints he did as endorsements. However, with time, his life too was subject to rapid changes. His lavish lifestyle entailed parties, booze, and other luxurious spending that cost him his fortune. In 2003, the boxer filed for bankruptcy, sending a shockwave in the boxing community. After having lost his entire life’s earnings, he paved his path toward financial stability one step at a time. And today, through his business acumen, the boxer is now worth $10 million, according to Marca.

The reputation that he built over the years was instrumental in starting over again. But to make something that would last and yield more profits, the boxer had to tap into potential avenues. One such opportunity was cannabis. An entire brand based on it, the fighter has interestingly harnessed the opportunities cannabis held and the name he made to make some big bucks. And now, his business venture might get an extra push after it gets a nod from a renowned influencer.

Generally, such celebrity meet-and-greets are attended by notable fans and major influencers who can cross-pollinate their followers with celebrities. Tyson’s little event at his cafe will perhaps do the same. A fitness influencer, Alisha Gra took to her Instagram stories to talk about the moment she could potentially meet Tyson. Flexing her insane pump after a probable gym sesh, the influencer said that she remains excited to meet the boxer. She further said she’d love to fulfill her dream to “lift up” the former world champion.

She said, “Getting the pump in the hope that I can make my dream come true to lift up @miketyson at the @coffeeshoptyson tomorrow.” 

The director of the cafe welcomed Tyson to the venue. Eduard Kempel in a press release, said, “We’re thrilled to welcome Mike Tyson to Coffeeshop Tyson 2.0 in Amsterdam. His passion for the cannabis industry resonates deeply with our city’s rich history and culture.
