Tyson ended his boxing career in 2005 with a defeat to Kevin McBride. As a phenomenon, Tyson"s greatness extends beyond the ring. As well as a scintillating boxing career, Tyson"s personal life has been controversial. Tyson was jailed for the rape of a beauty contestant, Desiree Washington, who was 18 years old at the time. Tyson was jailed as a result.

In addition, Tyson was also accused of physically and mentally abusing his wife Robin Givens. Tyson also became dependent on alcohol and drugs, before he was rescued by the cannabis plant. Tyson then built the cannabis industry through his company, Tyson Holistic. In 2020, the cannabis company Tyson recorded a profit of 500 thousand pounds - equivalent to Rp 10 billion - per month.

In the middle of 2020, a study was conducted to measure the strength of Mike Tyson"s punch. 44 KOs from 58 fights are definitely not a haphazard record, no? In a report published by Thrillist, Tyson"s hit power is calculated to be equivalent to being hit by a Vespa motorbike with a speed of approximately 15 kilometers per hour.

The study was computed by various models in joules, which took into account height and range, among other things. Tyson is estimated to have a punch power of up to 1,600 joules. Rocky Marciano, the only world champion who has never touched defeat has ever been measured by the power of his blows. The result is only 1,256 joules.

But Tyson isn"t the only one. Previously, another legendary boxer, Frank Bruno, was also noted to have the same punch power as Tyson. However, a combination of other aspects proved Tyson"s tetal above Bruno. After all, Bruno was also a victim of Tyson. He was knocked out by Tyson on March 16, 1996. Bruno lay helpless after being hit by two Tyson"s punches.

In addition to the Vespa collision, Thrillist also illustrates the power of Tyson"s punch is equivalent to being shot by 13 people using a 22 caliber pistol using a flak jacket. On the other hand, Tyson"s hit felt the same as falling from a height of 2.1 meters.

The way Mike Tyson trains his punches

Mike Tyson shows extraordinary consistency in his physical abilities. At 53, when he hasn"t been in the ring for 15 years, Tyson is still showing incredible speed and hitting power. This was shown by Tyson in a training session in mid-2020.

Tyson"s toughness cannot be separated from Cus D"Amato and Kevin Rooney, two important figures who have shaped him since he was 13 years old. Cus D"Amato has looked after Tyson since his mother died. Cus D"Amato has built an important foundation in Tyson"s development: self-confidence.

Another value that Cus D"Amato instilled in Tyson was dedication and discipline as well as a winning mentality. At the age of 13, Cus D"Amato assigned an incredible portion of training to Tyson. The boy born in Brooklyn, New York, United States (US) practiced his punches using 135 kilograms of sand sag. Cus D"Amato is also used to thrusting out sparring opponents who are more senior than Tyson. Tyson often wins.

Detailing Tyson"s other workout menu, Cus D"Amato assigns Tyson"s portion of strenuous training to a duration of 50 to 60 hours per week. Tyson was also asked to do two hundred sit-ups, 50 dips, 50 push-ups, as well as weight training in the same frequency.

Reported by Forsight, the exercise is said to be done ten times throughout the day, which is reduced to ten times per day every six days per week. Cus D"Amato often added that training when Tyson was going to have a fight.

The Tyson training schedule starts at 04.00 and ends at 21.00. Cus D"Amato also routinely targets 200 sparring times for Tyson.

In this practice, Tyson usually takes off his headgear because it has the potential to make boxers lose their sensitivity. In this series of exercises, Tyson"s weight will usually drop 7 to 9 kilograms.

However, Cus D"Amato passed away a year before watching Tyson lift the belt to the youngest heavyweight title in 1986. Kevin Rooney has since taken over from Cus D"amato as Tyson"s coach.
