He has two siblings; an older brother named Rodney and an older sister named Denise, who, unfortunately, died of a heart attack, aged 24 in February of 1990. Apart from this, he also hаd а hаlf brоthеr nаmеd Јіmmіе Lее Кіrkраtrісk. Jimmy was into gambling and would be found hanging around in areas where people of that nature are to be found. Years later, Jimmy abandoned the Tyson family and Mike faced the loss of his mother when he was just 16.

Since Mike lived in areas that had a high crime rate, he was actively involved in crimes which resulted in him being arrested about 38 times by the time he was only 13. He later went to the Tryon School for Boys in Johnstown but dropped out.

In 1978, Tyson was sent to a reform school in New York, where Bobby Stewart, a social worker, and a former boxer, acknowledged his skills and directed him to a well-reputed trainer Cus D’Amato, who was to later become his legal guardian.

 

Mike Tyson Personal Life:

Mike married his longtime girlfriend Lakiha Spicer in June of 2009,  two weeks after the death of his daughter, Exodus, at the La Bella Wedding Chapel and shares two children, Morocco and Milan, with her.

Before this, he dated Robin Givens and was married to her in February of 1988 but the marriage ended up in a separation one year after. He went on to marry Monica Turner in 1997 and had two children together, named Rayna and Amir. However, they were divorced 5 years later.

In between the marriages, Tyson had an extremely active love life and he dated many women namely, Tabitha Stevens, Lauren Woodland, Kola Book, Luz Whitney, Suzette Charles, and many more.

 

Mike Tyson Career:

Mike’s first professional debut in boxing was at the age of 18, in 1985, against Hector Mercedes, winning the battle in a first-round KO. Before this, he won gold medals in the Junior Olympic Games by defeating his opponents Kelton Brown and Joe Cortez in 1981 and 1982 respectively. He also fought twice against Henry Tillman in the Summer Olympics of 1984, however, lost both times.

Tyson quickly rose to fame by winning 26 of his first 28 fights, either by KO or TKO which made him known as one of the best heavyweight champions. His back-to-back victories instilled the belief in people that Tyson was after all undefeatable. However, this was later proved wrong by Buster Douglas. It is also a well-known fact that Douglas’s mom passed away the night before his match with Tyson, stating that her son would obtain victory over him. Douglas made his fight with Tyson last so long as no one ever had and ended up winning the match.

Tyson is also known to be the first fighter to hold the IBC, WBC, and WBA titles, all in the same year. He went after the world’s top heavyweight champions around the globe, defeating and winning the belts from James Smith, Pinklon Thomas, and Tony Tucker. “Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!!” a smash-hit video game was released by Nintendo in 1987.

However, his constant substance abuse, and a 6-year prison sentence for being convicted of raping 18-year-old beauty pageant contestant Desiree Washington, left a major scar on his reputation and career. After serving 3 years and setting out of prison, he tried to get back in the game, but his time was short-lived.
