From the Bronx to ‘bite’ fights – The Mike Tyson story | BBC Sport

by

In 1985, Mike Tyson became the youngest ever world heavyweight champion and looked unbeatable. With a unique fighting style and intimidating aura – the ‘baddest man on the planet’ was dominating the fight scene.

But by the time of his retirement from the sport in 2003, Tyson’s career and personal life had seen many highs and extreme lows.

BBC Sport investigates the journey of the Brooklyn born brawler, who not only transcended the sport of boxing, but who was also at the centre of some of it’s most controversial ever moments.
