 Tyson owes his secret to 150 fights and 38 arrests as a child


Tyson won the world heavyweight champion when he was 20 years old. He still has the record of the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history. His success not only comes from his dedication, professional integrity and incredible boxing skills, but also because he likes street fighting very much. Though trained by the worlds best boxing coach, Tyson owes much of his success in boxing to more than 150 street fights he took part in as a child.

In a growing environment full of violence and crime, Tyson started his criminal activities very early, and was arrested 38 times at the age of 13. He often robbed people in the neighborhood and mingled with some older criminals. Tysons hard growing up experience gave him a lot of fighting experience in his early years, because he had to learn how to protect himself in the conflicts around him, and regarded fighting as the only way to protect himself.

Even as a child, Tysons talent for fighting was exposed. He has previously said that when he was 11, he was famous in his neighborhood for knocking down a 20-year-old man. He attributed his success in boxing to constant fighting in his youth. In a recent episode of the hotboxin podcast, Tyson explained that fighting in Brooklyn was a way of life and that he had personally participated in more than 100 street fights before he became a professional boxer. Ive been involved in about 150 street fights, Tyson admits. Thats probably why Im good at boxing. Thats what weve done in Brooklyn, weve been fighting, fighting, fighting Tyson, 54, is ready to return to the ring on November 28 to hold an eight round performance match with Roy Jones, 51, the world champion of the first four levels. The centenary war is expected and concerned by boxing fans, and Tyson has become the focus again. Source: Netease sports Author: boxing plus wrestling editor: Wang Chengcheng_ NB12651
