Notorious for his ear biting incident against Evander Holyfield and his somewhat questionable face tattoo (one he doesn’t regret). Tyson’s career took a stunning downfall after the 1997 fight with Holyfield, resulting in many poor financial choices by Tyson. At the height of his career, Tyson’s reached a net worth of some $300 million, making him one of the richest, and most valuable, names in the entire sporting world. Even among boxers, his name held a lot of weight. Notably, he was even included as the main boss in the hit video game Punch-Out!! In many ways, Tyson’s career saved him from a potential future mostly behind bars. The boxer had been 38 times by the time he turned 13. However, he took up boxing as a teenager, and even competed successfully in several Junior Olympics matches. At 18, his professional career began with a first-round knockout win. He held onto the undisputed championship title for over 5 years, until his personal life began to draw him away from training as rigorously as he had in the past. In 1990, he lost the title. Nevertheless, his career, which spans from 1985 to 2005, includes 58 fights with 50 wins, 44 of which were knockouts.
