Considered to be one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, Mike Tyson’s explosive career has seen him become the undisputed world heavyweight champion from 1987-90. As the first heavyweight fighter to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles, the now-55-year-old had a knockout-to-win percentage of 88%.

Tyson spent three years in prison on a rape conviction before being released on parole in 1995. His subsequent comeback fights helped him regain the heavyweight championship title. After two scandalous divorces, Tyson has been married to Kiki Spicer since 2009. The father of seven has been inducted into both the World Boxing Hall of Fame and the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
