Khamzat Chimaev Painful Health Rumor Revealed

Chimaev is suffering from a ‘medical issue’ according to Ariel Helwani. You can view photos and videos below, including Chimaev blaming Darren Till for the fight being off.

Nate Diaz and Mike Tyson are seen as two of the baddest men on the planet. Mike Tyson is most definitely one of the most legendary professional boxers in the history of the sport. Triller’s latest event featured Evander Holyfield squaring off against Vitor Belfort and getting knocked out in over a minute within the first round. Due to the match’s reception, new regulations will be imposed and that includes banning exhibition matches. Due to this, Mike Tyson and Holyfield may be banned from Triller. Mike Tyson also previously revealed a racist remark by Jake Paul. 

Mike Tyson recently was involved in an incident, where he punched a passenger named Melvin Townsend, who was bloodied after Tyson hit him in the head many times. This was due to Mike Tyson harassing him and agitating him for a long time.

He returned to action against Roy Jones Jr. in November 2020, ending a hiatus of over 15 years away from the sport. He has talked about dying on several occasions.

In his book, Undisputed Truth, Mike Tyson opened up about how McEnroe inspired him in one of his matches. Opening up about that incident, Tyson wrote,

“I didn’t go into the fight (with James ‘Bonecrusher’ Smith) at a hundred percent. I was suffering from a pinched nerve in my neck that would haunt me for years so I was in a bit of pain. But I walked into the ring like I owned that place. I thought that the ring was my home and it was where I lived and I was totally comfortable in its circumference.”

He added, “But I still wasn’t a seasoned fighter. My ego was out of whack back then. I felt like John McEnroe. F**k you who cares? I had so much respect for him. He was a beast and that was just how I felt. I felt entitled to anything concerning the boxing world. And if I wasn’t getting it you were going to hear from me.”
