To those of you out there who still see Mike Tyson as a star then be informed that today is his birthday.
Wish him well.
Personally I think people like Mike Tyson are the real celebrities of the world.
Their progress through life and in their field is really inspiring.
The boxer took to his Instagram page to acknowledge the date as well as say thanks to those already wishing him well.
- Michael Gerard Tyson (born June 30, 1966) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1985 to 2005. He reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title at 20 years, 4 months and 22 days old.
- Tyson won his first 19 professional fights by knockout, 12 of them in the first round. He won the WBC title in 1986 after stopping Trevor Berbick in two rounds, and added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker in 1987. This made Tyson the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles, and the only heavyweight to successively unify them.
Happy birthday Mikey!
