Mike Tyson Gets Candid About His Toughest Opponent Ever

Mike Tyson is one of the most successful and controversial boxers to ever compete in the world, he has become an American icon. His career will always be remembered for its highs as well as a few lows. One his toughest opponents was Lennox Lewis who retired undefeated from boxing with a record of 52-0. In this exclusive interview, Tyson talks about what it felt like facing him for the first time and how he got through it.

Mike Tyson is one of the most famous boxers in history. He has had a long and storied career, but he’s also had his fair share of tough opponents. One such opponent was Lennox Lewis, who beat Tyson twice. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Tyson revealed that he would have to fight him again if given the chance.

In his 58 bouts as a professional boxer, Mike Tyson won 58 of them. He had a 50-6 record and two no-contests. The world was shocked in 1990 when James “Buster” Douglas knocked out the previous heavyweight champion in the 19th round after he had won his first 37 matches.

Tyson suffered most of his defeats later in his career. After falling to Kevin McBride in 2005, he lost three of his next four bouts before retiring. Tyson reminisced on his career while viewing a handful of his bouts on the screen during this week’s Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson podcast. When asked who the hardest opponent he had ever faced was, he opened up.

The most feared boxer of all time was Mike Tyson.

Tyson instilled dread in his adversaries. He had a lethal punch, and he did not spare his enemies. In his first 19 professional bouts, he won through knockout. Twelve of the defeats were via knockout in Round 1.

In his first 37 matches, he recorded victories. In addition to being strong and skillful, Tyson openly said he desired to injure opponents.

Rapper Eminem claimed that he was the best knockout artist in a Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson broadcast from 2020.

Nobody knocked people out the way you did, according to Eminem. People have been knocked out by other combatants, but when they were knocked out by you, they were really knocked out.

Tyson said such was the case since his life improved when he injured someone.

Tyson said, “Yeah, that’s how I looked at it. “My life becomes better every time I injured someone and knocked them out. I adore harming others because it makes my life better.

“My life is getting better, and I’m getting the mansions and the f****** chicks. Both the boats and the airplanes are mine. Because I receive what I desire, suffering is sweet. At the moment, it was how I saw the world.

Tyson reviewed his fighting career in his most recent podcast session.

Tyson spoke about his boxing days on the most recent episode of his podcast. He saw some of his earlier videos and discussed some of his finest matches. When asked about one of his hardest battles by his guest, boxer Stephen Fulton Jr., Tyson responded right away.

On the most recent Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson show, he said, “Me.” That has always been my hardest battle.

“Holyfield and Ruddock were excellent. There are many excellent fighters. Another excellent fight, Lennox Lewis.

Despite the fact that defeats weren’t often, Tyson said that they taught him more about himself.

He said, referring to them as a “learning experience,” “I look at some of my defeats as my finest battles.”

Tyson watched a round of his 2000 bout with Andrew Golota with co-host Sebastian Joseph-Day, Fulton Jr., and Tyson. All three of them gasped and oohed as they saw Tyson quickly dispatch Golota.

You can turn this off, it didn’t last long, Tyson remarked.

Joseph-Day questioned Tyson on how he managed to maintain his composure while dominating the majority of his opponents in the sport of boxing.

He remarked, “I believe I was modest. “I wasn’t serious about myself. Humility is defined as not taking oneself too seriously. Even though people were telling me I was God, I knew I wasn’t.
