“I’m a Real Fighter Groupie” Mike Tyson Recalls Being Awed by These Legendary Fighters

It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that Mike Tyson was one of the most formidable boxers in the latter half of the 20th Century. From ‘Kid Dynamite’ to ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’, Tyson went on delivering enthralling KO punches in his fights throughout his career. The Youngest Boxing Heavyweight Champion reigned the division with just his presence, and everybody wanted to see ‘Iron’ Mike perform on the canvas. Although he had his downs and went through bankruptcy after retirement, Tyson never accepted defeat. His resilience brought him back to his feet.

Tyson even saw his financial downfall coming before it happened. Anyway, everybody feels pumped to encounter this strong personality, and a lot of boxing fans aspire to meet him at least once. One such question was posed by the Cigar & Spirits Magazine, as they got to interview Mike Tyson for a short moment.

Mike Tyson talks about some awe-inspiring fighters

After shooting one of the episodes of Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, he was encountered by the Cigar & Spirits Magazine staff who wanted to hold a conversation with the boxing legend. So, at first, the Magazine staff expressed their excitement over meeting the great fighter. They even took a poll on being “the Mount Rushmore of the Heavyweight champions“. Needless to say, 24 out of 25 chose the name ‘Iron’ Mike.

Tyson remained modest during this conversation and labelled himself “overrated“. But then, the interviewer asked him whether there was a boxer who got Tyson pretty excited. Tyson said that this was an easy question and quoted, “Muhammad Ali. My brother Roberto Duran. He was a street fighter. I’m a real fighter groupie. I respect fighters.
