Former Boxing Heavyweight Champion of the World
Mike Tyson is a larger-than-life legend-- both in and out of the ring. Tenacious, talented, and thrilling to watch, Tyson embodies the grit and electrifying excitement of the sport.
With nicknames such as "Iron" Mike, Kid Dynamite, and The Baddest Man on the Planet, it's no surprise that Tyson's legacy is the stuff of a legend. Tyson was one of the most feared boxers in the ring, and one look at his resume proves he is one of boxing's greats: Aside from having been the undisputed heavyweight champion, Tyson holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles. He was the first heavyweight boxer to hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles simultaneously. In 2011 Tyson was inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame and in 2013 he was inaugurated into the Las Vegas Hall of Fame.
Tyson's enduring mass appeal owes not only to his incomparable athleticism, but to his huge personality and unrivaled showmanship. His ability to work a crowd extends far beyond the ring- Tyson's career in entertainment spans everything from blockbuster movies (The Hangover and The Hangover 2), to documentaries. In 2015, Mike worked with director Bert Marcus on a star-studded documentary, Champs that examines like lives in and out of the ring of the boxing greats. Last year Mike starred alongside Donnie Yen in the well-received film Ip Man 3 and appeared in the "Meet The Blacks." Most-recently, his character has hit the small (mobile) screen with the TysonEmoji where fans can choose their favorite Mike Tyson expressions from biting an ear to a golden gloves.
Tyson is also making a major name for himself in television. He not only starred in his own docu-series on FOX Sports 1, "Being Mike Tyson" in the Fall of 2013-his most recent project, a Warner Brothers hit animated series, "Mike Tyson Mysteries" which airs on Adult Swim, is currently going into its third season after a hugely successful debut. Last year he joined the hit FOX's, "SUPERHUMAN," which will continue into it's second season this summer. Tyson is a New York Times best selling author.
