How Mike Tyson’s Polite Threat Turned Rock, Paper, Scissors into a $50 Million Showdown

Mike Tyson had a rock, paper scizzors match with auction owner Ken Goldin for a memorabilia belonging to the late great Muhammad Ali.

Boxing legend and former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson made an appearance on the King of Collectibles show. The host Ken Goldin is an auction owner worth 50 million dollars. Tyson had brought up some of his items from his legendary career to put for an auction. The former heavyweight champ then set his eyes on something on Goldin’s shelf.

Tyson saw Goldin had a signed pair of Muhammad Ali gloves with the writing in gold. It is no secret that Tyson loves Ali and wants to have the memorabilia. He then told Goldin that he had a collection of Ali memorabilia, and the glove would be the “Crown Jewel” of the collection. Goldin then challenged Tyson to a game of rock, paper, and scissors for the gloves.


Iron Mike said he would fight Goldin for the gloves and needed them. Tyson proclaimed himself as a master in rock, paper, and scissors and proved it when he won against the auction owner. Goldin had to give up the legendary memorabilia to the former boxing champion.

Tyson is one of the most dangerous boxers in the history of boxing. He won his first 19 professional fights via knockout and was the youngest boxer to win the heavyweight title and was also the first heavyweight boxer to unify the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles. He has an impressive record of 50 wins, six losses, and two no-contests.
