Even Gen-Zers are familiar with Mike Tyson thanks to his official website and cannabis business, which have received respectable social media attention. ‘Iron’ Mike, who was born in the early 1990s, has a staggering 20.6 million followers on social media, making him one of the most popular athletes.
Mike Tyson is clearly a well-known figure on the Internet nowadays, as he is very certain to win the 2023 Webby Awards. A number of well-known people, such Megan Thee Stallion and actor Adam Scott, have hosted the prestigious Webby Awards in the past.
The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences bestows the Webby Awards on the Internet each year for outstanding work. Tyson, the newest heavyweight champion in history, is obviously looking to adorn his glitzy headgear with yet another feather.
Mike Tyson is still dominating the big screens
Tyson is a popular face in the cinematic universe too as his cameos have found spots in several Hollywood movies like The Hang Over, IP Man 3, and many more.
Recently, Tyson was spotted in an Indian film titled Liger alongside Anaya Pandey and Vijay Deverakonda.
It is reported that Tyson charged more money than the lead actors for his minor cameo role. Meanwhile, Mike Tyson’s life journey itself deserves to get reflected in a movie. Hulu depicted Tyson’s life in a web series where Trevante Rhodes replicated the boxer’s role.
However, Tyson was unpleased with Hulu for not paying him a penny over the project.
Jamie Foxx is also reported to be in the works for performing Mike Tyson’s character in an upcoming project. Hence, Tyson is still relishing superstardom after 18 years of his professional retirement.
