44 years ago today one of the greatest heavyweight boxers the world has ever seen was born, Mike Tyson. At the age of 20 Tyson became the youngest heavyweight ever to hold the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles. While he had a fare share of drama outside of the ring, his accomplishments as a fighter made him a fixture in the world of entertainment.
So to tip our hats to one of the greatest ever we rounded up some of our favorite Tyson moments, references and tributes.
Mike Tyson managed to make us laugh and still knock a muffuga out in this hilarious scene from “The Hangover”

Tyson was a favorite subject of MCs but he was immortalized next to the greatest “Mikes” ever on The Notorious B.I.G’s “Victory”
“Raw nights I perform like Mike, anyone:Tyson, Jordan, Jackson, action, pack guns/ridiculous”
