Michael Gerard Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs) held the undisputed world Heavyweight championship and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF Heavyweight titles at 20 years, 4 months and 22 days old.

In 1988, Tyson became the lineal champion when he steamrolled Michael Spinks in 91 seconds. Tyson was ranked No. 16 on The Ring’s list of “100 Greatest Punchers of All Time” and No. 1 on the list of “The Hardest Hitters in Heavyweight History.”

Tyson, throughout his ups and downs both inside and outside the ring, has maintained his status as an icon.

Whether you remember him as “Kid Dynamite,” “The Baddest Man on the Planet” or “Iron Mike,” it’s hard to find a boxing fan who doesn’t consider him one of the most captivating and exciting fighters of all time.
