Mike Tyson is a larger-than-life legend, both in and out of the ring.
With nicknames such as “Iron” Mike, Kid Dynamite, and The Baddest Man on the Planet, Tyson’s legacy is undisputed. One of the most feared boxers in the ring, his resume proves he is one of boxing’s greats: in addition to being the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion, Tyson holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles. He was also the first heavyweight boxer to hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles simultaneously. In 2011, Tyson was inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame, and in 2013 he was inaugurated into the Las Vegas Hall of Fame.
Tyson’s enduring mass appeal owes not only to his incomparable athleticism, but also to his huge personality and unrivaled showmanship. His ability to work a crowd extends far beyond the ring - Tyson’s career in entertainment spans everything from blockbuster movies (The Hangover and The Hangover 2) to documentaries. He has also toured nationally and internationally with his critically acclaimed Broadway one-man show “Mike Tyson: UNDISPUTED TRUTH,” which additionally aired as an HBO special. After a successful run at the MGM Grand’s Hollywood Theater, the show debuted on Broadway under famed director Spike Lee, before a return to the MGM and a national tour.
In 2018, Mike began his newest venture as an entrepreneur, opening up Tyson Ranch where he works to create cannabis-based products like Copper Gel to help alleviate pain. In addition to Tyson Ranch, his podcast HotBoxin’ (on which Tyson talks with some of the world’s greatest sports legends, actors and more) has been listened to over 40 Million times. His expansive digital footprint reaches over 400 million people, and in 2019, Tyson accumulated over 1.4 billion impressions on social media.
A devoted husband and loving father, Tyson splits his time between Los Angeles and Las Vegas with his wife Kiki and their children.
