June 30th 1966 a man was born. June 30th 1966 a myth was born. This is the day that "Iron" Mike Tyson was created. A soon to be legend in the world of boxing. Raised in Brooklyn, New York, Tyson was known around the neighborhood as a young thug with a pension for petty crimes.
Left to fend for himself at the age of 16 because of his mothers death, Tyson moved in with famed boxing manager and trainer Cus D'Amato who then began training Mike to be the next big thing in the world of boxing.
Tyson competed in the 1981 and 1982 junior olympics. Twice winning the gold medal. He won every fight by knockout. Infact he still owns the record for quickest knockout at 8 seconds. March 6th 1985 Tyson made his professional debut with a first round knockout of Hector Mercedes. It's time to start onslaught. Mike won 26 of his first 28 fights by knockout. 16 of them in the first round. It's about this time I discovered "Iron" Mike Tyson. We're the same age. I needed a modern day hero and he became mine.
In November of 1985 Cus D'Amato passed away. It's at this time Kevin Rooney and Teddy Atlas took over managing and training Tyson. It's about this time that famed snake in the grass promoter Don King became involved with the Tyson camp. This motherfucker promised Mike the world as he stole from him day after day.
November 22nd 1986, Tyson knocked Trevor Berbick out in the second round to become the youngest heavy weight champion of the world at the age of 20 years and 4 months. At this time the legend continues to grow. He's being compared to Ali, Marciano, Louis and Holmes.
About this time Don King introduces Tyson to actress Robin Givens. To be honest she's nothing but a money hungry whore with bad intentions. She's jumping on the Tyson gravy train as fast as she can. She's the type of woman to suck a cock for 2 quarters. Straight up whore I tell you!
June 27th 1988 Mike knocks out Mike Spinks in 91 seconds to become the "undisputed" heavy weight champion of the world. Holding 3 titles at once. A man's man! After firing his handlers, Tyson gets KO'd by James "Buster" Douglas on Feb. 11th 1990. This is the the turning point of life for Mike Tyson. His marriage to Robin Givens is over by now. He's paying out the ass in alimony to this skank whore.
In July of 1991, Tyson was charged with rape of 18 year old beauty contestant Desiree Washington. It's a he said she said type of trial. She has accused other people of raping her in the past and they were found innocent. Not this time. Mike is convicted of rape. Time for prison. Here's how much of a cunt she is. She offers to drop the charges for one million dollars in cash. Another money hungry whore!
Tyson does 3 years in the joint in Indiana. He converts to Islam for his religious beliefs. He gets out and visits the Mecca. Life might be getting back to normal now. Mike wins back one of his title belts and all seems to be going well. That is till he fights Evander Holyfield and bites off part of his ear. I'm sensing it's a cry for help. Tyson and Holyfield fight again. Guess what? Same fucking thing happens again!
An end of this story is that Mike ended up with major money problems. Thanks to Don King and a bunch of hanger on's. Mike is one broke motherfucker now. He's trying to get right. He's trying to lead a good life with his family. He's the misunderstood legend that was fucked over time and time again by people who were supposed to be looking out for his best interest. Thats fucking bullshit! He should have been the king of the world! Now he's a shell of the man he once was. Thanks Mike for the memories. May God bless you and I hope the people who fucked you over burn in hell.
