We all know “Iron” Mike Tyson for his immense punching power, his first 19 professional bouts were won by knockout, with 12 of them occurring in the first round. But what people forget is that Tyson was one of, if not the greatest, defenders in boxing history with a bob & weave Peek-a-Boo that made him nearly impossible to touch. This is how you win boxing championships. Tyson’s vicious punching ability certainly carried him a long way but he was arguably the best ever because no one could lay a finger on him.
Defense isn’t glamourous so if you want to see some knockouts here’s the best highlight reel we’ve seen to date. With his 46th birthday right around the corner it shows Tyson’s career from his first fight in 1985 and everything in between leading up to the conclusion where he becomes the youngest heavyweight champion of all-time.
