Michael Gerard Tyson is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1985 to 2005. He reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1990 and was the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles, as well as the only heavyweight to successively unify them.
Life after boxing
In October 2012, Tyson launched the Mike Tyson Cares Foundation. The mission of the Mike Tyson Cares Foundation is to “give kids a fighting chance” by providing innovative centers that provide for the comprehensive needs of kids from broken homes.
In August 2013, Tyson teamed up with Acquinity Interactive CEO Garry Jonas to form Iron Mike Productions, a boxing promotions company, formerly known as Acquinity Sports.
In September 2013, Tyson was featured on a six-episode television series on Fox Sports 1 that documented his personal and private life entitled Being: Mike Tyson.
In May 2017, Tyson published his second book, Iron Ambition, which details his time with the trainer and surrogate father Cus D’Amato.
On May 12, 2020, Tyson posted a video on his Instagram of him training again. At the end of the video, Tyson hinted at a return to boxing by saying, “I’m back”.
On May 23, 2020, at All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing, Tyson helped Cody defeat Lance Archer alongside Jake Roberts and presented him with the inaugural AEW TNT Championship. Tyson alongside Henry Cejudo, Rashad Evans, and Vitor Belfort appeared on the May 27 episode of AEW Dynamite facing off against Chris Jericho and his stable The Inner Circle.
Tyson is just as tough as he was in his boxing prime.
They don’t call him “IRON MIKE” for nothing. Mike Tyson was spotted presumably working out with a steel cage at a Los Angeles beach this week. Yes, a steel cage. The former professional boxer, who turned 54 this week, bared his many tattoos and concrete abs for the outdoor sweat session.
Tyson, who appeared to have on a weighted vest, sported a fully grown oldie’s beard. His hands were wrapped in the white tape as if he just came out of the practice and was about to hop in the ring with his old rival Evander Holyfield. And, that wouldn’t have been the craziest thing to happen, as Tyson noted on his Instagram video on May 12, that he’d consider a rematch with Holyfield for charity.
Tyson was seen flipping the massive steel cage. He appeared to be filming some sort of project, as cameramen and a crew (all of which wore masks) surrounded him on the beach. He was also seen carrying buckets of fish, tossing life rafts in the sand, and wearing snorkeling equipment.
He is also starring in an upcoming movie about his life, Finding Mike, with actor and singer Jamie Foxx set to play him. Back in June, the Oscar winner, 52, gave an update on the process of transforming his body to portray the boxing legend. Jamie shared a series of shirtless snaps of his buff bod looking very muscular as the biopic was heading into pre-production.
