Mike Tyson Net Worth $3 Million

A well-known former boxer, how rich is Mike Tyson? According to sources, in 2002, he received a payment of $35 million for his victory against Lennox Lewis. In 2009, Mike Tyson sold his mansion in Farmington, from which he earned $4.1 million. In regards to his total wealth, Mike Tyson’s net worth is estimated to be $3 million, most of which he accumulated as a professional boxer.

Mike Tyson was born in 1966 in New York City, United States, yet due to their financial issues, Tyson’s family had to move out to Brownsville. By the age of 16, Tyson had lost both of his parents, hence Cus D’Amato, a former boxing trainer, took care of him. Tyson later studied at the Tryon School for Boys, where he trained to become a boxer. His skills were eventually noticed by a former boxer Bobby Stewart. Tyson’s professional career started at the Junior Olympic Games, which he won in 1981 and 1982. His rise to fame started in 1985, when he debuted in a match against Hector Mercedes, whom he defeated. A year later, in 1986, Tyson partook in his very first televised match against Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Two years later, Tyson defeated Spinks and became the undisputed world heavyweight champion. Over the years, Mike Tyson managed to maintain the status of one of the greatest heavyweight champions.

When he retired from boxing in 2006, Tyson made an appearance in Todd Phillips’ comedy film called “The Hangover”, participated in WWE events, and appeared in the television series entitled “Breaking In”. More recently, he starred alongside Neil Patrick Harris in “How I Met Your Mother”, with whom he later appeared during Tony Awards in 2013.

A well-known former professional boxer, as well as an actor, Mike Tyson has an estimated net worth of $3 million.

9 The Simpsons (1989) boxer character "Drederick Tatum" was based on him and Riddick Bowe.
10 His 1988 1 min. 30 sec. match against Michael Spinks was compared to challenging boxer John L. Sullivan in Timecop (1994).

13 Won his first 19 fights by knockout.
14 Proposed fights with World Wrestling champion Hulk Hogan and Mixed Martial Art's Champ Royce Gracie never materialized.

17 The character "Blood" from Vendetta (1991) was modeled after him, and his nemesis, Mitchell Green.
18 Served nine months in jail in for assaulting two people after a car crash in 1998.
19 In 2000 he fought three times. His third, against Andrzej Golota, was first a victory, but changed to no-contest after Tyson failed a drug test. The next year he fought only once, knocking out Brian Nielsen in the seventh round.
20 He was fined $3 million, and was banned from boxing for one year for biting Evander Holyfield's ear during a bout.
21 Not long after his release from prison, he was ready for a massive return. It was the most anticipated comeback in generations. In August of 1995, he beat Peter McNeeley in a matter of seconds - 89, to be exact.
22 At 13 years old weighed 200 pounds.
23 His name was dropped from the 1987 classic game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! (1987) because the contract for his name was about to expire, and he lost to James 'Buster' Douglas. Since he was no longer the champion, and with his contract expiring soon after, Nintendo no longer wanted Tyson. As a result, the game title became "Punch-Out!" and the last fight was against Mr. Dream, rather than Tyson himself, with Mr. Dream having the same abilities and sayings as Tyson.
24 Before the game Street Fighter II: V (1995) came to the USA, there were fighters named Mike Bison who was a 6'5" tall boxer, Balrog who was a Spanish assassin with a claw, and Vega who was the leader of Shadowloo. To avoid a possible lawsuit from Tyson, Capcom (the makers of Street Fighter) had a three-name swap between Mike Bison, Balrog and Vega.

33 Was soundly defeated by Lennox Lewis via knockout in the eighth round. [June 2002]
34 The Nevada State Athletic Commission voted to deny Tyson a license to box in Las Vegas, thereby effectively pulling the plug on an April 6 pay-per-view bout with Lennox Lewis that was due to air on both HBO and Showtime and could have produced the biggest take for a heavyweight title fight ever. [January 2002]
35 Wife Monica Turner filed for divorce. [January 2002]
36 In 1991 Desiree Washington, a Miss Black America contestant, charged that Tyson raped her in an Indianapolis hotel room. He was arrested, tried, convicted and served three years in prison.

#Quote
1 I just want them to keep bringing guys on and I'm going to strip them of their health. I bring pain, a lot of pain.
2 God, it would be good to be a fake somebody, rather than a real nobody.
3 If I do a stage show with a big screen, it's because I guess people think I'm a notable guy. That's what I want to do. I love entertaining people. That's what links boxing and acting.
4 Mostly, people who come from my neighborhood are statistics, like a lot of my friends. It was just a dog-eat-dog world. That's how it was. Learning to steal and fight at a young age, I was in a lot of trouble.
5 Now, when we see a boxing match, we know who's gonna win before they start. Very rarely do they have even- matched boxers. And the promoters use only their own fighters to fight each other. That's almost like a slave contract.
6 As a young kid, I used to watch boxing films and I would stop the film when I'd see something I liked - the way he bowed, the way he'd hit somebody, or the way he stood with his belt - and I would rewind it and emulate it. Over and over again. I liked the villains best because you never forgot them.
7 I'm a Muslim, but I think Jesus would have a drink with me. He would be cool. He would talk to me.
8 I don't try to intimidate anybody before a fight. That's nonsense. I intimidate people by hitting them.
9 God lets everything happen for a reason. It's all a learning process, and you have to go from one level to another.
10 I feel like sometimes that I was not meant for this society.
11 Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the mouth.
12 I'm crazy, but I'm not crazy like that.
13 My career has been over since 1990 . . . When I look at my fans, they don't love me. They love what I do. I'm an entertainer. I'm a performer. I entertain them. That's what I do.
14 [6/11/05, on his loss to Irish boxer Kevin McBride] I felt like I was 120 years old. I don't think I have it anymore.
15 [He] called me a 'rapist" and a '"reclulse". I'm not a recluse.
16 I guess I'm gonna fade into Bolivian.
17 When I was in prison, I was wrapped up in all those deep books - that [Leo Tolstoy] crap. People shouldn't read that stuff. When we read those books, what purpose does it serve in this day and time?
