🚨 Mike Tyson names the best performance of his career, it was brutal

Posted by

Mike Tyson is a boxing icon and finished his career with a record of (50-6, 44 knockouts)

β€˜Iron Mike’s’ rise through the sport was incredible, winning his first 37 fights before being shocked by James β€˜Buster’ Douglas in Japan in 1990.

Before that he had bludgeoned the likes of Frank Bruno, Larry Holmes and Trevor Berbick but Tyson was in no doubt what his greatest performance in the ring was.

β€œThe Michael Spinks fight was my best performance,” Tyson told The Ring. β€œI kept moving forward and threw a couple of great three-punch combinations. When I finally caught him on the ropes, I remember turning southpaw in order to throw my right hand to the body and right uppercut.”

Tyson famously knocked Spinks out in just 91 seconds leading to the bout being dubbed as the ’91 second massacre’.

Spinks never boxed again and announced his retirement from the sport just a month later. The Tyson fight was the only loss of his professional career.

Many think this was the peak of Tyson and with this sort of brutal performance it is easy to see why.
