Personal Information

Michael Gerard Tyson is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1985 to 2005.

Nicknamed Iron Mike and Kid Dynamite in his early career and later known as The Baddest Man on the Planet, Tyson is considered to be one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time.

He reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1990.

Tyson won his first 19 professional fights by knockout, 12 of them in the first round. Claiming his first belt at 20 years, four months, and 22 days old, Tyson holds the record as the youngest boxer ever to win a heavyweight title.

He was the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles, as well as the only heavyweight, to unify them in succession.

The following year, Tyson became the lineal champion when he knocked out Michael Spinks in 91 seconds of the first round. In 1990, Tyson was knocked out by underdog Buster Douglas in one of the biggest upsets in history.

In 1992, Tyson was convicted of rape and sentenced to six years in prison, although he was released on parole after three years.

After his release in 1995, he engaged in a series of comeback fights, regaining the WBA and WBC titles in 1996 to join Floyd Patterson, Muhammad Ali, Tim Witherspoon, Evander Holyfield, and George Foreman as the only men in boxing history to have regained a heavyweight championship after losing it.

After being stripped of the WBC title in the same year, Tyson lost the WBA title to Evander Holyfield by an eleventh-round stoppage.

Their 1997 rematch ended when Tyson was disqualified for biting Holyfield’s ears, one bite notoriously being strong enough to remove a portion of his right ear.

In 2002, Tyson fought for the world heavyweight title, losing by knockout to Lennox Lewis.

Tyson was known for his ferocious and intimidating boxing style as well as his controversial behavior inside and outside the ring.

With a knockout-to-win percentage of 88%, he was ranked 16th on The Ring magazine’s list of 100 greatest punchers of all time, and first on ESPN’s list of The Hardest Hitters in Heavyweight History.

Sky Sports 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 and the World Boxing Hall of Fame.

Michael Gerard Tyson was born into a Catholic family in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, New York City on 30 June 1966.

He has an older brother named Rodney and an older sister named Denise, who died of a heart attack at age 24 in February 1990.

Tyson’s mother, born in Charlottesville, Virginia was described as a promiscuous woman who might have been a prostitute.

Tyson’s biological father is listed as Purcell Tyson, a humble cab driver on his birth certificate but the man Tyson had known as his father was a pimp named Jimmy Kirkpatrick.

Kirkpatrick was from Grier Town, North Carolina, where he was one of the neighborhood’s top baseball players.

Kirkpatrick married and had a son, Tyson’s half-brother Jimmie Lee Kirkpatrick, who would help to integrate Charlotte high school football in 1965.

In 1959, Jimmy Kirkpatrick left his family and moved to Brooklyn, where he met Tyson’s mother, Lorna Mae Tyson. Kirkpatrick frequented pool halls, gambled, and hung out on the streets.

My father was just a regular street guy caught up in the street world, Tyson said. Kirkpatrick abandoned the Tyson family around the time Mike was born, leaving Tyson’s mother to care for the children on her own. Kirkpatrick died in 1992.

The family lived in Bedford-Stuyvesant until their financial burdens necessitated a move to Brownsville when Tyson was 10 years old.

Tyson’s mother died six years later, leaving 16-year-old Tyson in the care of boxing manager and trainer Cus D’Amato, who would become his legal guardian.

Tyson later said, I never saw my mother happy with me and proud of me for doing something, she only knew me as being a wild kid running the streets, coming home with new clothes that she knew I didn’t pay for.

I never got a chance to talk to her or know about her.

Professionally, it has no effect, but it’s crushing emotionally and personally.

Throughout his childhood, Tyson lived in and around neighborhoods with a high rate of crime.

According to an interview in Details, his first fight was with a bigger youth who had pulled the head off one of Tyson’s pigeons.

Tyson was repeatedly caught committing petty crimes and fighting those who ridiculed his high-pitched voice and lisp.

By the age of 13, he had been arrested 38 times.

He ended up at the Tryon School for Boys in Johnstown, New York.

Tyson’s emerging boxing ability was discovered there by Bobby Stewart, a juvenile detention center counselor and former boxer.

Stewart considered Tyson to be an outstanding fighter and trained him for a few months before introducing him to Cus D’Amato.

Tyson dropped out of high school as a junior.

He would be awarded an honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters from Central State University in 1989.

Kevin Rooney also trained Tyson, and he was occasionally assisted by Teddy Atlas, although Atlas was dismissed by D’Amato when Tyson was 15.

Rooney eventually took over all training duties for the young fighter.

Tyson resides in Seven Hills, Nevada.

He has been married three times, and has seven children, one deceased, with three women: in addition to his biological children, Tyson includes his second wife’s oldest daughter as one of his own.

His first marriage was to actress Robin Givens from 7 February 1988 to 14 February 1989.

Givens was known at the time for her role in the sitcom Head of the Class.

Tyson’s marriage to Givens was especially tumultuous, with allegations of violence, spousal abuse, and mental instability on Tyson’s part.

Matters came to a head when Tyson and Givens gave a joint interview with Barbara Walters on the ABC TV newsmagazine show 20/20 in September 1988, in which Givens described life with Tyson as torture, pure hell, worse than anything I could imagine.

Givens also described Tyson as manic depressive which was later confirmed by doctors on national television while Tyson looked on with an intent and calm expression.

A month later, Givens announced that she was seeking a divorce from the allegedly abusive Tyson.

According to the book Fire and Fear: The Inside Story of Mike Tyson, Tyson admitted that he punched Givens and stated, that was the best punch I’ve ever thrown in my entire life.

Tyson claimed that the book was filled with inaccuracies.

They had no children but she reported having had a miscarriage; Tyson claimed that she was never pregnant and only used that to get him to marry her.

During their marriage, the couple lived in a mansion in Bernardsville, New Jersey.

Tyson’s second marriage was to Monica Turner from April 19, 1997, to 14 January 2003.

At the time of the divorce filing, Turner worked as a pediatric resident at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

She is the sister of Michael Steele, the former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland and former Republican National Committee. Turner filed for divorce from Tyson in January 2002, claiming that he committed adultery during their five-year marriage, an act that has neither been forgiven nor condoned.

The couple had two children; a son Amir and Ramsey who is non-binary.

On May 25, 2009, Tyson’s four-year-old daughter Exodus was found by her seven-year-old brother Miguel unconscious and tangled in a cord, dangling from an exercise treadmill.

The child’s mother, Sol Xochitl, untangled her, administered CPR, and called for medical attention.

Tyson, who was in Las Vegas at the time of the incident, traveled back to Phoenix to be with her.

She died of her injuries on 26 May 2009.

Eleven days after his daughter’s death, Tyson wed for the third time, to longtime girlfriend Lakiha Kiki Spicer, age 32, exchanging vows on Saturday, 6 June 2009, in a short, private ceremony at the La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton.

They have two children; daughter Milan and son Morocco.

In March 2011, Tyson appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss his new Animal Planet reality series Taking on Tyson.

In the interview with DeGeneres, Tyson discussed some of the ways he had improved his life in the past two years, including sober living and a vegan diet.

However, in August 2013 he admitted publicly that he had lied about his sobriety and was on the verge of death from alcoholism.

In November 2013, Tyson stated the more I look at churches and mosques, the more I see the devil.

But, just a month later, in a December 2013 interview with Fox News, Tyson said that he is very grateful to be a Muslim and that he needs Allah in his life.

In the same interview, Tyson talked about his progress with sobriety and how being in the company of good people has made him want to be a better and more humble person.

Tyson also revealed that he is no longer vegan, stating, I was a vegan for four years but not anymore.

I eat chicken now and then. I should be a vegan at all, no way! I would be very sick if I ate red meat.

That’s probably why I was so crazy before. In 2015, Tyson announced that he was supporting Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy.

On 20 April 2022, on a JetBlue flight from San Francisco to Florida, Tyson repeatedly punched a male passenger who was harassing him.
