Mike Tyson

Regarded as one of the most feared, powerful and skilled boxers of all time, Michael Gerard Tyson has made quite an impression on popular culture. He was the first boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles and the only fighter to hold the three titles simultaneously. With a record of 44 knockouts out of his 58 matches, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world was known for his hard-hitting style and ferocious tactics. He is also famous for biting Evander Holyfield's ear during their historical re-match in '97. The hall of fame boxer is recognized for his tumultuous life outside the ring, including his rocky marriage to actress Robin Givens, run-ins with the law and three year prison term tied to his infamous rape case. Since retiring in 2006, "Iron Mike" has dabbled in everything from acting (including a star turn in "The Hangover") and wrestling to philanthropy and competing in dance competitions. In April 2012 he launched his own stage show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth-Live on Stage, to detail the ins and outs of his life as a boxing legend and chided public figure.
