And the Winner is…

February 23, 2009


This weeks winner is Iron Mike Tyson. One of the hardest hitters of the boxing world, Tyson was the undisputed heavyweight champion for over two years. He won his first 19 professional bouts with knockouts, 12 of which happened in the first round. Maniac. In 1992, The Baddest Man on Earth made a choice that some people thought was a bad idea. He raped a woman and was sentenced to three years in prison. After his release in 1995, he tried for a comeback and regained a portion of his heavyweight title only to lose it to Evander Holyfield in 1996. Tyson is probably going to be remembered for his Holyfield rematch in 1997 in which he was disqualified for biting a piece of Holyfields ear off. Bad choice number 2. In 2003, he filed for bankrupcy. I guess the $300 million he made throughout his career just wasn’t enough to support him. Tyson retired in 2005 after a few disappointing ass beatings. He is number 16 on Ring Magazines list of the 100 greatest punchers of all time.
