Further, Tyson even got to know that this year is the 35th anniversary of him becoming the youngest heavyweight champion. ‘Iron’ bagged the heavyweight gold at just 20 by beating Trevor Berbick. Acknowledging that, he said, “To be honest I don’t remember that night and most of my boxing career is a blur. And so I live this life now.”

Although Tyson may not remember, fans and purists know every detail of his boxing career. ‘Iron Mike’ was the most devastating knockout artist in his prime and he completely redefined the heavyweight roster with his brilliance.

That said, his love for boxing still prevails over anything, and ‘Iron’ Mike fulfills his love by taking on exhibition fights.
