Michael Gerard ‘Mike’ Tyson (Brooklyn, 30th June 1966), also known as Malik Abdul Aziz, is an American former boxer. He won the heavyweight world title twice in the 80s. He holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight world title. It was on the 22nd November 1986, when he won the WBC title after defeating Trevor Berbick. Tyson was 20 years, 4 months, and 22 days old then. He unified all the titles later, after facing James Smith (WBA) and Tony Tucker (IBF). He defended his titles several times but was finally defeated by James ‘Buster’ Douglas in 1990.
On 26th March 1992, Tyson was sentenced to 10 years, 6 in prison and 4 on probation. He was released for good behaviour in March 1995, and came back to boxing that same year. Tyson won the world title again in 1996, but lost it to Evander Holyfield a few months later. In 1997 he faced Holyfield again, and bit off part of his opponent’s right ear. After being warned by the referee and after trying to do it again, Tyson was disqualified and lost his boxing license for 12 months. He continued to box, and fought again for the world heavyweight title at the age of 35, losing to Lennox Lewis. He retired three years later. Tyson declared bankruptcy in 2003, despite having received $30 million for several of his fights and $300 million during his career.
Mike was well known for his ferocious and intimidating boxing style as well as his controversial behaviour inside and outside the ring. Nicknamed ‘Iron’ and ‘Kid Dynamite’ in his early career, and later known as ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’. He is considered one of the best heavyweights of all time. He was ranked No. 16 on The Ring's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time, and No. 1 in the ESPN list of ‘The Hardest Hitters in Heavyweight History’. Sky Sports rated him as ‘the scariest boxer ever’ and described him as ‘perhaps the most ferocious fighter to step into a professional ring’. He has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2011 and the World Boxing Hall of Fame in 2010.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Beautiful jersey - simple packaging but efficient.
Only downside is the shipping cost charged (85 euros) when it effectively cost seller 17.50 euros. I know it is part of the system but not ideal.
