Back in the 1990s, Tyson was the flamboyant face of heavyweight boxing. He transformed the entire boxing universe with his exuberant in-ring performances coupled with his fair share of controversies.

Prior to him, no one in the sport ever witnessed that level of stardom. But in no time, ‘Iron’ Mike turned himself into the most followed star of boxing.

He hammered every opponent thrown in front of him and captivated everyone’s attention with his sublime knockout power.

But as he went out of the game, the 50-6 boxer abruptly gained a lot of weight and lost his colossal heavyweight boxing frame. However, being a former champ, ‘Iron’ Mike put his stern mindset to the test, and he regained his old shape.

He looks to inspire the modern era with every activity he does. And with the transformation he’s had, it’s safe to admit that Tyson inspired individuals across the boundaries of boxing.
