Mike Tyson’s Career

Mike had a chequered career to say the least, both inside and outside the boxing ring. In 1992 he was convicted of the crime of rape and subsequently spent the next 3 years in jail. When he was released from jail he went back to the boxing arena to take up where he left off.

After several fierce bouts with renowned boxers of the likes of Frank Bruno and Bruce Seldon, Tyson went on to fight Evander Holyfield and it was in a rematch with Holyfield that Mike Tyson was famously disqualified for biting the ear of his opponent.

The Tough and Committed Boxer

He was well known for his brutal and menacing style which assured fans of an enthralling and entertaining match no matter where in the world he was fighting. His fans adored him, and still do to this day. He is an inspiration to many, despite his controversial past, and that is why so many people want a poster of a champion to hang on their walls. There are no better posters that portray a tough, committed boxer than those of Mike Tyson.


Tyson’s Demise

Mike Tyson retired from the professional boxing arena in 2006 after being knocked out in fights against both Danny Williams and Kevin McBride.

During his career it is estimated that Mike Tyson earned around $600 million, but despite this he actually filed for bankruptcy in 2003 unable to keep pace with his extravagant lifestyle. He was known to indulge in expensive hobbies such as the purchase of elite cars, motorcycles, boats, Clubbing and Hollywood style mansions.


Unfortunately, as happens for so many celebrities, Mike Tyson’s lifestyle was unsustainable. It was a tragedy for him to lose so much wealth.


Rumor has it that Mike is now living in Nevada.
