Mike Tyson aka Iron Mike or Kid Dynamite is an American boxer who competed from 1985-2005
He is considered to be one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, even today after his retirement.
He notoriously made news in 1992 when he was convicted of sexual assault and sentenced to six years in prison....
....and later in 1997 when he (in)famously bit off a piece of his opponent's ear in the ring during a match
Tyson has mellowed out through the years but was known for his controversial behavior both in and outside the ring
Once he retired from boxing, Tyson once famously said his whole life has been a waste and that he's a 'failure'
He also had a bout with the law when he was charged with drug possession, with the boxer even admitting he's an addict
He has since turned his life around, launching a foundation to help kids from broken homes get a second chance
After making his acting debut with the Hangover in 2009, he has now been roped in to star in Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday starrer Liger, directed by Puri Jagannadh
