Mike Tyson is popularly known as ‘The Baddest Man on The Planet’. During his prime days, Tyson was famous for his over-aggressive reactions and bad temper both inside and outside the ring. Here are the five times the heavyweight champion lost his temper inside the boxing ring.
One of the most bizarre moments in boxing history happened when Tyson bit off a portion of Holyfield's ear in the third round of their much-anticipated rematch in 1997. He was disqualified from the bout and lost his boxing license.
Tyson was showering his opponent with lethal hooks and uppercuts when the referee stepped in to stop the bout. But Tyson was so keen to destroy Savarese that he accidentally hit the referee with a lethal blow knocking him down.
At the end of the first round, Tyson grabbed Esch's left arm and tried to break it. The referee failed to separate the two and their teams were called in to help.
In a bout with Norris, the 'Iron Mike' at the very end of the first round just after the bell rang, Tyson lent a left-hand blow on Norris that sent him to the canvas. In round two, Norris didn't enter the ring stating a knee injury.
When Tyson bit his opponent Holyfield again the referee stopped the fight and disqualified him. Tyson didn't agree with this decision and the brawl began in the ring with the security leading to which Tyson was fined $300 million by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
