Mike Tyson, the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world in his time, is a retired American Boxer. He was born as Michael Gerard Tyson on June 30, 1966 in Brooklyn, NYC, New York to a poor single mother and had a pretty notorious childhood as he was arrested for more than thirty times before the age of thirteen.
Mike’s journey to stardom, as a boxer, started when he won gold medals in the Junior Olympic Games in 1981 and 1982. Mike’s career got a hike when he trained under his trainer Cus D’Amato, who even became his legal guardian after his mother died when he was 16 years old.

In his boxing career, Mike has appeared in a total of 58 international level fights, among which he has won 50. He won 44 of those games by knockout, giving him the name of Iron Mike.
The heavyweight champion has seen some pretty darks sides in his life. In 1988 his domestic life started to fall apart as he divorced his wife, fired his trainer and on top of that, lost a fight to Buster Douglas, the then underground boxer. With all the negativity flowing in his life, Mike also went through some serious law embezzlements and was arrested for the rape of an eighteen year old for which he got sentenced for ten years.
Mike served three years in jail and when he got out, he was already bankrupt. Mike’s then net worth of over $300 million went down to zero showing the rock bed of his career. In 2003, Mike announced his retirement from boxing which ended a golden era in boxing.
Tyson has been married for the third time and lives his retired life with his wife, Lakiha Spicer. He is a father of eight children, one deceased. Maintaining his life with many media appearances along with movies like The Hangover and a program in Animal Planet, Mike is in the verse of sobering from his years’ long problem of alcoholism.
