‘God was Jealous of me’ – Mike Tyson Reflects on his Thought Process After Losing



Mike Tyson was an extravagant star of the sport back in the 90s. He made waves immediately and became a household name because of the way in which he smothered his opponents. In fact, ‘Iron’ Mike lost his first fight after five years of his professional debut. In a new podcast with Hotboxin, Tyson laid out his notions on how he felt after not having his hand raised inside the squared circle. He said, “I believe the reason I lost (because) God was jealous of me. Because I was getting too famous and big and he had to put me into my place. I was a sick dude when I was fighting man, I was really sick. I believed in the mythology and all that s**t. I used them, just used that as my ammunition and my inspiration to fight.” ATLANTIC CITY – AUGUST 17,1986: Mike Tyson looks to take a punch to Jose Ribalta during a bout at Trump Plaza Hotel on August 17, 1986 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.Mike Tyson defeated Jose Ribalta TKO 10.

But, his ideology got shattered in 1990 when James Douglas KO’ed him. However, when he looks back at the same now, ‘Iron’ Mike feels he was on cloud nine and the setback was necessary to put himself back on his feet.

In 2005, he retired with a stupefying record of 50 wins and 6 losses. Out of those 50 wins, 44 came in via T/KO. Even at his current age, Tyson keeps himself relevant in the sport by taking up exhibition bouts and he wishes to do the same frequently. What did you make of his thought process following his defeats? Was it the same after Kevin McBride stopped him in 2005?
