Mike Tyson vs legendary wrestler the Undertaker? It is not fantasy, but a concrete reality. In fact, it would seem that Iron Mike would like to close 2021 with a challenge to the Deadman: at Wrestlemania 37 there could be a surprise entry by Tyson, who in addition to interfering in some matches, should launch an iconic challenge to the Undertaker, now withdrawn from the ring, according to the latest rumors.
The Undertaker, considered one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, as well as one of the greatest legends in WWE history [, was ranked second in the 50 best wrestlers in history by the IGN website in 2012, while in 2013 the Digital Spy portal recognized him as the greatest superstar to ever fight in WWE, a federation of which he was the longest-serving athlete, having been under contract for 30 years (from 1990 to 2020).
Mike Tyson, considered one of the best heavyweights in boxing history and among the most recognizable and paid athletes of the eighties and nineties, despite the low height for the category, Tyson, thanks to his remarkable physical prowess, was one of the most effective and fearsome hunters in the history of the division.
He occupies the 16th position on The Ring's 100 Greatest Hunters Ever, and 1st in that of ESPN's Greatest Heavyweight Hunters.
Mike Tyson challenges the Undertaker!
Sky Sports named him the most fearsome boxer ever and described him as arguably the Fiercest fighter to ever set foot in a ring.
Also known for his behavior both in and out of the ring, he was rated by ESPN as the worst sportsman of the past 25 years. He was named fighter of the year by Ring Magazine in 1986 and 1988, and is inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
Tyson won his first 19 fights by knockout, 12 of them in the first round. In 1986, at the age of 20, 4 months and 22 days, he won the WBC crown against Trevor Berbick, becoming the youngest heavyweight champion in the world, a record that still remains unbeaten.
The boxing match between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield was held in Paradise, Nevada, near Las Vegas on Saturday, November 9, 1996. Holyfield won the world title for the third time, reaching the record of The Greatest. In the post-match press conference, Tyson praised him: "Thank you very much.
I have the utmost respect for you." The rematch was again held in Las Vegas, June 28, 1997: even in that case the victory went to the reigning champion Holyfield, who won the match due to the disqualification of Mike Tyson in the 3rd round, following repeated attempts by Tyson himself to bite the opponent's ear.
