It’s 1981 and a young Mike Tyson quickly made a name for himself in the boxing world. He was an animal. An unstoppable force.
Take, for example, his battle for the junior gold medal against Joe Cortez.
Tyson’s famous speed and agility are evident even at the tender age of 15. He is incredibly developed and skilled in the ring and as a result his opponent had no chance.
In the first few seconds of the round, a young Tyson almost runs towards a helpless Cortez, throwing left and right like a man possessed.
Despite his heritage in sports, Tyson was not voted the greatest boxer of all time by the SPORTbible audience.
The legendary Muhammad Ali was instead named best of all time, beating Tyson, Floyd Mayweather and Sugar Ray Robinson for the title.
In an online poll, the audience of SPORTbible Ali gave the majority of the votes, as ‘The Greatest’ consistently maintained an enormous lead and ultimately received a total of 59% in the overall ranking.
