One of the most spectacular heavyweights in history, Mike Tyson, is celebrating his 54th birthday today.
Born in New York in 1966 and named Michael Gerard Tyson, his career spans a sphere from many different eras and tastes in history. Tyson has not only been a great boxer, but an inspiration and an icon.
Tyson twice won the world title in the 1980s, being the youngest champion in history to hold aloft the heavyweight title, when on November 22, 1986 he defeated Trevor Berbick at just 20 years old, 4 months and 22 days
Mike Tyson, a member of the Canastota Hall of Fame, is currently in good shape with strong intentions to return to the ring for some charity exhibition fights. Plus, he keeps himself busy tending to his personal business.
Happy birthday Dear Mike!
