It says, “All my life I’ve been a student of war. Studying the great conquerors from Charlemagne to Achilles. From Alexander the Great to Napoleon. I’ve studied them all. I know the art of fighting and I know the art of war. Now I am working on the art of being humble.”
Often referred to as “The Baddest Man on the Planet,” Tyson is nothing short of an enigma. His larger-than-life persona inside and outside the ring made him one of the most popular sports personalities of the century.
From his fights with Trevor Berbick to beating Michael Spinks, Tyson left nothing but pure devastation in his wake.
Mike Tyson and his comeback to boxing
Mike Tyson (50-6-2, 44 KOs) has been inactive after retiring from boxing in 2005, focusing on his other ventures. However, with a training video he posted earlier this year, Tyson announced his comeback to boxing.
After considering a lot of potential opponents, the name of Roy Jones Jr. was finalized. Jones was a four-weight world champion and was expected to face Tyson earlier in their careers, but the bout simply didn’t happen.
Although Jones will be at a size disadvantage in this bout, he has been relatively active in the ring. Having last stepped foot in the ring in 2018, he most likely won’t be having an issue with his conditioning.
Going into this fight, Tyson will look for the knockout, whereas Jones will look to take over in the later rounds. Whichever way the fight goes, it will be a delight for the fans.
