For boxing legend Mike Tyson, controversies are the norm, and it seems like he doesn’t care about being in the news. But what he should have cared about, is his tooth. 

Tyson has knocked out many boxing greats during his career, but little did he know that his decision to pet a tiger would knock his teeth out one day.

The reason for a gap between his teeth is his pet tiger Kenya, who headbutted him when he tried to kiss her.

“On one occasion I went ‘give me a kiss’ and she put her head in and boom I had gold teeth back then and she knocked my teeth out because her head is like concrete,” Tyson explained. 

For people who can afford golden teeth though, losing a tooth shouldn’t be a problem.
