Mike Tyson Is Crazy Happy & It’s All Because Of Another ‘Tyson’ In The Boxing Ring
Mike Tyson is considered to be one of the greatest fighters to ever step foot inside the boxing ring. But that doesn’t stop him from showing support to the new generation of boxers making a name for themselves today. Proof of this is his reaction to the results of a recent match between two heavyweights.

In a short video clip posted on Twitter, the former boxing champion can be seen celebrating with the rest of the crowd who came to see the rematch between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.
Tyson was seen pumped up and cheering as Fury emerged from the fight as the WBC heavyweight champion with the match ending in a technical knockout (TKO) during the seventh round.
The 53-year-old boxing legend was in the MGM Grand Garden Arena prior to the fight as he was honored by the World Boxing Council (WBC) earlier. He along with his former opponents Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield were handed medals by the organization.
The remarkable moment showing Iron Mike celebrating didn’t fly by unnoticed by fans of the sport. Netizens were quick to point out the significance of Tyson’s support to Fury.
One fan shared how the British boxer was actually named after Tyson himself. What more, Fury’s rival Wilder has dubbed himself as the ‘baddest man on the planet’. The same descriptor has also been used as an accolade of Tyson.
Meanwhile, another fan commented that Tyson might have seen himself in his namesake for a split second in the ring and thought that he was his ‘heir apparent’.
One More Reason
Other sources, on the other hand, are saying that there might be another reason why Tyson was so glad about Fury’s win. The victor’s rival has previously made some negative comments about the former heavyweight champion.
On more than one occasion, Wilder has stated that he could beat Tyson even during the latter’s prime in the late ‘80s. He cites his height, footwork, speed, and athleticism as his advantages over Tyson.
Wilder further explained how an old-school fighter wouldn’t be able to beat a new-school one given the technology available today. He did backtrack a little bit though saying that he didn’t mean to disrespect the boxing legend.
