Why didn’t Mike Tyson want to be like Muhammad Ali?

Mike Tyson once revealed why he did not want to emulate his idol, Muhammad Ali, during his formative years in boxing. The two heavyweight legends, Tyson and Ali, have often been compared due to their exceptional careers and numerous world championships.

Tyson’s rapid ascent to superstardom mirrored Ali’s early career, but ‘Iron Mike’ made it clear that he didn’t aspire to be like Ali. Despite admiring and respecting Ali, Tyson candidly expressed that their upbringings were vastly different.

He grew up in a harsh environment, far removed from Ali’s background, and it shaped his approach to the sport.

While Ali was known for his speed, technique, and flair, Tyson sought to embody the ferocity of Sonny Liston and Jack Dempsey, aiming to intimidate and vanquish adversaries with a single devastating punch.

Speaking in an interview with Steve Bunce, Mike Tyson stated:

“I didn’t want to be like Muhammad Ali because where I came from, Muhammad Ali didn’t come from the world I came from. I came from filth, scum, and sewage, so I wanted to be mean like Sonny Liston and Jack Dempsey. I wanted to be ferocious, I wanted to kill you with my stare. I wasn’t like Muhammad Ali. I love and respect Muhammad Ali, but Muhammad Ali is not like me. He doesn’t come from the world I come from.”
