Mike Tyson is most definitely one of the most legendary professional boxers in the history of the sport, and he attended the US Open recently, with fans suggesting he looked high on mushrooms, as seen below. 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. Sylvester Stallone has now said Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight ever, not Mike Tyson, in a new interview with Fury.
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 then some.
Mike Tyson, former world heavyweight champion, built his career on iconic fights and a quirky personality outside the ring. This made him one of the most financially successful boxers of all time. Despite this, Tyson faced challenges both mentally and financially, having grown up in poverty and committing crimes for survival. He candidly describes his difficult upbringing, including his mother’s rebukes for his thefts, in his autobiography.
Tyson released his autobiography, Undisputed Truth in the year 2014. The book co-written by Larry Sloman, saw Tyson open up about the thunderous highs and the heartbreaking lows of his life. It also detailed his life from his childhood to becoming one of the most feared boxers of all time. The book also included an excerpt of his mother’s reaction to him becoming a thief.
Tyson’s family originally lived in Bedford-Stuyvesant but had to move to the rough neighborhood of Brownsville due to financial difficulties when Tyson was 10. In Brownsville, Tyson got involved with the wrong crowd and, along with friends, resorted to theft. He recalls how the victims, mostly women, would report the crimes to his mother, Lorna Smith Tyson.
Lorna Smith Tyson was undoubtedly disappointed with her son’s actions. ‘Iron’ Mike revealed that she did not hold back and shouted at him, saying, “You’re nothing but a thief. I’ve never stolen nothing in my life. I don’t know where you come from, you thief.”
