Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has been in the news recently, showing off his boxing skills at the age of 53.
As impressive as Tyson looks throwing punches on video, “Iron Mike” was at his best during the ’80s, when he dominated the division and was considered “the baddest man on the planet.”
ESPN is showing nine of his greatest fights this Saturday (7 p.m. ET), including his incredible knockout victories against Michael Spinks, Frank Bruno, Mike Jameson and James Tillis.
The broadcast will also include part 1 of Mike Tyson’s Greatest Hits, a 30-minute show featuring some of Tyson’s top moments in the ring.
