On August 1, 1987, he became the undisputed world heavyweight champion by winning the IBF heavyweight championship. He reigned as champion until 1990.


Teddy Atlas (Tyson's coach), in an interview with ringtv, had this to say about young Mike Tyson.

“As far as most pure, God-given talent… raw, from the earliest stage that you saw, it would have to be a 12-year-old Tyson, who was 190 pounds but no fat. He had to impress me and Cus; he had to box his first day with a 27-year-old man who was a professional fighter and he was able to do that”

While he didn't stay undefeated, he always tried to put on a show, which gave him overwhelming public appreciation and following.
