Mike Perry reveals he learned his “Mike Tyson style" of fighting from a female boxing legend

Adam D Martin - May 24, 2020

UFC welterweight Mike Perry said that he learned his “Mike Tyson style” of fighting from female boxing legend Christy Martin. Perry is a mixed martial artist but as anyone who has watched his fights knows, he’s an extremely aggressive striker who relies primarily on his punching power. Obviously, Perry is in a different league from a guy like Tyson, but it’s still cool to see him giving the boxing legend some love. It’s equally nice to see Perry showing some admiration for Martin, one of the greatest female boxers of all time.
