Years After Making $430 Million in His Boxing Career, Mike Tyson Finally Reveals the Truth Behind the 4 AM Routine That Helped Him Become Youngest Heavyweight Champion in History

Mike Tyson in his prime was a larger-than-life figure. He made over $430 Million during his boxing career and became the youngest heavyweight champion of the world. Not to mention, his childhood was traumatic, to say the least. As a teenager, he grew up in poverty, was bullied, and lost his parents. However, destiny had it for him to become one of the greatest boxers ever.

Tyson lived a life of discipline and continues to advocate for that lifestyle and regime. During an episode of his podcast, Jorge Masvidal, the guest and the former UFC fighter was curious to know why Tyson used to wake up at 4 A.m. In response, ‘Iron Mike,’ revealed that he wanted a holistic day of training that included, spars, road work, and strength training. Waking up early in the morning allowed him to be productive in all those facets. In addition, he claimed waking up at 4 a.m. used to give him mental confidence as his opponents were sleeping while he was grinding.

Reflecting on the same, he stated, “First of all that’s what I like. I wanted all the fight. I want the rest, the running, I wanted that boxing sparring and plus psychologically if I get up three or four in the morning, you know my opponent’s not up at three of four in the morning so that’s my psychological advantage.”
