Mike Tyson plays Punch-Out for the first time


The man known as “The Baddest Man on the Planet”, “Kid Dynamite”, and “Iron Mike” has never played the game after his own name. I grew up hearing about Tyson and watching recorded fights of his with my family. So I was shocked to learn that he hasn’t played this.

But after thinking about it, it’s not that hard to believe that Mike Tyson has not played Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!; when he was at his prime of boxing he was knocking people out in seconds and when he wasn’t at his prime he was in and out of jail. Then he retired and did cameo roles on movies. So we’re going to have to forgive him.

Well, recently Mike Tyson was on Fox Sports, and while backstage they decided to let him play the game. And the results shouldn’t be so shocking.

Check out the clip of “Iron Mike” playing the game below.
