Paige Spiranac labels Mike Tyson as the spookiest athlete

In her recent post on Halloween, Spiranac assembled her rankings based on athletes whom she considered the most intimidating. Five former athletes made it to the list, which majorly comprised UFC and baseball icons. But the top honors went to Mike Tyson, whom Spiranac considered the “Monster of the Heavyweights”.

Spiranac, who sported the MLB franchise Philadelphia Phillies’ outfit, made the rankings in association with her sponsorship deal with PointsBet Sportsbook.

She has made exclusive posts for the betting website, with the caption “@_paige.renee is all dressed up for Halloween as she ranks the spookiest athletes ever”.

The Bahamas-born Ferguson was multifaceted in a variety of domains. He was a mixed martial artist, boxer, and professional wrestler. Additionally, he worked as an actor in a number of action-based movies such as ‘Blood and Bone’, ‘Circle of Pain’, ‘Locked Down’, and ‘The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption’.

While Kimbo Slice made his UFC debut in 2009, he was already a popular entity. His roles in combat street fight videos went viral back in the day. The clips took notice of popular wrestlers on the circuit, with the Rolling Stone naming him “The King of the Web Brawlers”.
