Mike Tyson – The Most Ruthless

The Boxing world was not ready for Mike Tyson when he emerged on the professional scene back in the late 80’s.  In 1986 at the age of 20, Tyson won the WBC Heavyweight Championship becoming the youngest heavyweight champion in history.  The thing I most like about Tyson besides his ridiculous early round knockouts was that he was a true student to boxing history thanks in part to his training with the legendary Cus D’Amato. Cus, Teddy Atlas, and Kevin Rooney helped Mike from an early age develop and perfect his style which was a constant fluid motion, it consisted of  weaving away from his opponents punches then coming in close to deliver his own trademark hooks followed by his devastating right uppercut.  To me Iron Mike was the most entertaining fighter to watch, which in turn makes him the Greatest in my opinion.  Watch Mike train and knock suckas out below, with music courtesy of Terminator and Requiem For a Dream.

The knowledge Tyson drops in this post-fight interview is the illest shit I’ve ever heard, and gives me chills real talk.  “I was gonna rip his heart out, I’m the best ever.  I’m the most brutal and most vicious and most ruthless champion theres ever been theres noone can stop me. Lennox is a conqueror? No. I’m Alexander, he’s no Alexander. I’m the best ever. There’s never been anybody as ruthless. I’m Sonny Liston. I’m Jack Dempsey, there’s no one like me.  I’m from their cloth. There’s no one that can match me. My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I’m just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!”    and that kiddies is how you end an interview…
