Mike Tyson of course went on to become one of the single greatest professional boxers of all time as he racked up a spectacular 50-6-2 record which saw him KO 44 of his opponents. Throughout the course of his historic career, Tyson won numerous titles including the WBC, WBA, and IBF heavyweight titles. In 2005, Tyson decided to hang up the gloves after dropping back to back KO/TKO losses, marking the first time since his losses to Evander Holyfield that Tyson suffered back to back defeats.
