No discussion of great heavyweights would be a complete without the infamous Iron Mike. As a child growing up in Brooklyn, New York, Mike Tyson was often teased for his lisp and his high-pitched voice. After a string of arrests, and seemingly heading for a life of crime, the 14-year-old Tyson was lucky enough to meet Gus D’Amato, the legendary boxing trainer who had coached former world champion Floyd Patterson. Armed.
with D’Amato’s guidance, a team of trainers and a furious desire to win, Tyson’s debut in the fight game revealed to the world a prodigious and intimidating talent.
Featuring Tyson’s first seventeen professional fights, many of which were not screened on TV, this programme exposes the fresh, raw talent of a naturally gifted fighter learning his craft. Post-fight interviews with the teenage Tyson reveal his studious and analytical approach to the sport,
while contributions from the likes of George Foreman bring an expert eye to the development of one of the most precise and powerful heavyweight game.
Michael Gerard Tyson (born June 30, 1966) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1985 to 2005. He reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title, at 20 years, four months, and 22 days old.
Tyson won his first 19 professional fights by knockout, 12 of them in the first round. He won the WBC title in 1986 after stopping Trevor Berbick in the second round, and added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker in 1987. This made Tyson the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles, and the only heavyweight to successively unify them. Tyson became the lineal champion in 1988 when he knocked out Michael Spinks in 91 seconds of the first round. He successfully defended his titles nine times, which included victories over Larry Holmes and Frank Bruno. In 1990, Tyson lost the titles to underdog Buster Douglas, who knocked him out in the tenth round. Attempting to regain the titles, Tyson defeated Donovan Ruddock twice in 1991, but pulled out of a fight with then-undisputed heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield (who had defeated Douglas later in 1990) due to a rib injury.
