Mike Tyson once said, “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” The saying has survived his illustrious career, being retold on multiple platforms.
The former undisputed king of the heavyweight division was known for his fierce power inside the boxing. In an incredible career spanning almost 2 decades, Tyson cruised past almost all of his opponents with his sheer knockout power.
However, the former heavyweight champion has had his ups and downs. Be that as it may, he has never felt better than he is feeling right now. Talking about his ego, which had taken a toll during the tough times, here’s what Mike had to say.
“It’s so much more healthier than it has ever been.”
He has taken on some of the most prolific boxers, skilled punchers, and lethal strikers. However, after everything was said and done, it was Iron Mike getting his hand raised inside the ring.
“I am gonna go to Plan B, punch him back.”
In response to his famous quote, Tyson was asked what his plan will be if he gets punched in the face in the upcoming exhibition bout. Needless to say, he had a reply for the ages.
Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. will share the boxing ring this weekend inside Staples Center in California. Boxing fans have expressed their concern over the safety of both the boxers.
After CSAC’s decision to not judge the bout in light of the exhibition match being held just for entertainment, the organizers feel otherwise.
WBC has designed a special belt called the “Frontline Championship” which will be on the lines this weekend. The bout will be judged, knockouts would mean a victory.
Additionally, a winner will be announced in what is being billed as the “Frontline Battle” between two of the best to ever step inside the boxing ring.
Both Tyson and Jones Jr. have looked incredible ahead of the bout. Needless to say, Tyson at 54, and Jones Jr. at 51 have set an example for fans around the globe that age is just a number.
