Today the newest members of the IBHOF were annoucned. I will be profiling them in the upcoming days. We start with "Iron" Mike Tyson.
There have been a lot of characters in boxing history but Tyson stands over them all. He started out as an unstoppable teenager then morphed into an almost mythical force as the youngest heavyweight champion ever.
He had guys beat before they ever stepped into the ring and won his first 37 fights and only four of those men saw the final bell.
He owns wins over Michael Spinks, Larry Holmes, Pinklon Thomas, Trevor Berbick, "Bonecrusher" Smith among others.
We then saw his fall from grace his eventual comeback and he was still the biggest star in boxing. He was always a huge star and still is for that matter.
Why was he inducted: I don't think I need to tell anyone this.
