Known for his insane punching-power and tenacity, Tyson became the greatest heavyweight of his generation and quite arguably of all time.
Now 56, ‘Iron Mike’ no longer participates inside the ring for obvious reasons, but he is busier now more than ever.
In recent years, the former world champion has taken up things such as acting in cameo roles in films and TV shows, being the host of his own podcast and many more.
Mike Tys on’s massive 8-second KO
Now with all that being said, let’s take a look at this knockout.
At just 15 years of age, one of Tyson’s earliest great successes was at the 1981 Junior Olympics w here he would go on to win the heavyweight competition’s gold medal.
In the fight which lasted just eight seconds, ‘Iron Mike’ was the aggressor from the word go and his opponent, Joe Cortez, didn’t know what had hit him.
In a flash, Tyson would hit a right hook followed by a devastating and powerful left hook to knock Cortez out and just like that, the fight was called off and Tyson was already celebrating before the referee called for the bell.
