YouTuber with 1.7million subscribers explains how to survive a punch from Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson is not a man to be messed with, but a YouTuber has explained what to do if you end up on the wrong side of him.

Tyson is considered to be one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, and for good reason.

Iron Mike, who enjoyed a 20-year career between 1985 and 2005, once won 37 consecutive matches, 33 of them knockouts. Only five boxers ever managed to beat him in the ring.

The 56-year-old hall-of-famer is known to have a short fuse, but don’t worry – here’s how to survive a Mike Tyson punch.

A few months ago, YouTube channel ‘How to Survive’ published a video titled ‘How to survive a punch from Mike Tyson’.

The video details five pieces of key advice that you should follow if you don’t want the last thing you see in this world to be Tyson’s fist.

Firstly, you should keep your eyes open at all costs. The natural instinct when bracing for impact is to close your eyes, but doing the opposite would serve you better.

“If you see the punch coming, your body’s natural instincts have a better chance to react to the threat and act to minimise the damage,” the video explains.

The next key stage is to roll with the punch. Most people tend to take punches straight to the face, but turning in the same direction as the punch lands would lessen the impact of the blow.

Tightening your neck muscles and pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth would also help.

Tyson’s preferred method of attack was to land body shots. Defending your abdominal region with your forearms and elbows would provide some protection to your vital organs.

The next tip takes a little more preparation. Boxers have big, strong neck and trapezius muscles which help support the head when it takes blows.

The more the head rocks around when it is punched, the greater the chance of concussion or blacking out. Strong neck muscles reduce the chances of that and whiplash.

Perhaps the best piece of advice is to just avoid him. We’re sure Mike Tyson is a nice enough fella, but if you can’t resist pestering him for photos then maybe just stay well clear.
