The former baddest man on the planet, Mike Tyson, never fails to amaze his fans. Even at 54 years of age, ‘Iron’ Mike keeps himself among the most spoken-about boxers on the planet. None of the former boxers keep their social media game in check like Tyson.
The American boxer posts frequently on his grilling workouts and regimes he takes on. Recently, he shared an image on his official Instagram handle, wherein he’s seen working out with the boxing gloves on.
“Whatever you want, especially when you want to be the best in the world at something, there’ll always be disappointments, and you can’t be emotionally tied to them or they will break your spirit. Keep pushing,” he wrote.
The American boxer shared an inspiring quote with his image, urging his fans to push all boundaries to achieve what they desire.
Tyson had one of the most decorated resumes in the sport. Ever since his debut fight, ‘Iron Mike’ attracted millions of fans, who followed his every move on the heavyweight roster. Although he accrued vast fame, there came a lot of critics and disappointment on his way too.
But by exhibiting a champion attitude, Tyson kept through and walked the path of all-time greats of the sport. In the aforementioned caption, he asserted that on a way to become the best, disappointments take place, but one should not attach himself to it.
‘Iron’ Mike stirred the boxing world with his astonishing finishes. He molded the retro heavyweight era of the sport by crucifying every opponent he faced. Until the last five years of his boxing reign, Tyson never lost a bout. He possessed a one-punch knockout power that took him to the peak of the sport.
The American boxer fought 56 times in his extensive boxing career and won 50 of them. Out of those 50 wins, a whopping 44 came in via T/KO.
Tyson believed in getting into his opponents’ head outside the ring, not just inside it.
Undeniably, ‘Iron’ Mike was the most intimidating heavyweight the sport saw. He still competes in exhibition bouts and looks to inspire the younger generation of fighters with his actions.
