Tyson said, “I’m Mike Tyson, I’m labelled a dangerous guy, a bad guy. But when I was in Boston, you know I figured out? Umm, when I was going through these extensive tests, I figured out why am I going through these tests?” When he asked about the same, they said that they were afraid of Tyson hurting somebody. But he replied asking “What about somebody hurting me? No one care about me being hurt? No one ever cared about Mike.”

Tyson remains one of the greatest heavyweight boxers ever fighting inside the ring. His ferocious fighting style and iron chin helped him become one of the fiercest fighters in combat sports history. Joe Rogan once said that the prime version of Mike Tyson remains the most dangerous version of a fighter in history.

Mike Tyson came out of retirement in 2020 and fought Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition bout that resulted in a draw. It doesn’t look like Tyson will fight anytime soon, but the right money can bring Tyson back to Boxing in the future. It appears Tyson is happy doing his podcast and reliving past glory with his guests with recent appearances from The Undertaker and Bruce Buffer.
