When he was alive, Mike Tyson was a formidable opponent. James Tillis ended his winning run for the first time. Now, this gave the other boxers encouragement that they could defeat “Iron” Mike.
Many boxers saw hope in Tillis’ victory because it showed Tyson wasn’t unbeatable. And Mitch Green’s chapter began with him challenging Tyson to a boxing battle. He made videos criticizing him, and HBO used to play them in between broadcasts. Well, in the year 1986, Mike Tyson accepted his challenge and entered the boxing ring with him.
The supporters are now ecstatic as they are reminded of this boxing match because Green resigned from boxing following this match and returned to the streets. The best heavyweight boxer of all time was Mike Tyson, who later achieved fame.
But after a while, Mike Tyson ran into Green in front of a restaurant, and Tyson punched Green in the face. Tyson also tore Green’s eye out during the altercation. Although there isn’t any concrete proof of the disaster, both of them insist that it took place.
