Former famous heavyweight
Tyson won the world heavyweight boxing champion at the age of 20 and still holds the record of the youngest world heavyweight boxing champion in boxing history. His success comes not only from his dedication, professional ethics and incredible boxing skills, But another important aspect is that he likes street fighting very much. Although Tyson has been trained by the best boxing coach in the world, he still owes his success in the boxing arena to a large extent to the more than 150 street fights he participated in as a child.
Tyson grew up in Brownsville, Brooklyn, New York. Brooklyn is notorious for its rampant violence and drug use. It is one of the most chaotic neighborhoods in New York City. For many people here, criminal activities are a way of life, and fatal fights due to trivial matters have become commonplace.
In a growing environment full of violence and crime, Tyson began to engage in criminal activities very early, and was arrested 38 times when he was 13 years old. He often robbed people nearby, and because he often mingled with older criminals. Tyson's hard growing experience gave him a lot of fighting experience in his early years, because he must learn how to protect himself in the surrounding conflicts, and fight as the only way to protect himself.
Even when Tyson was a child, his talent for fighting was revealed. He has said before that when he was 11 years old, he was famous among his neighbors for knocking down a 20-year-old man. He attributed the secret of his boxing success to the constant fighting during his youth.
In a recent episode of the Hotboxin podcast, Tyson explained that fighting in Brooklyn is a way of life. Before he became a professional boxer, he personally participated in more than 100 street fights.
"I have participated in about 150 street fights," Tyson admitted. "This may be why I did well in boxing. This is what we did in Brooklyn. We have been fighting, fighting, fighting."
Tyson, 54, is preparing to return to the ring on November 28 and hold an eight-round exhibition match with the top four world boxing champions 51-year-old Roy Jones Jr. This "hundred-year-old war" is a hit. With fan expectations and attention, Tyson once again became the focus.
