Mike Tyson names his best ever performance and it’s not the Trevor Berbick fight

Mike Tyson destroyed many opponents.

Mike Tyson burst on the scene in the mid-1980s in an impressive manner as he blitzed his way through a number of opponents on his way to becoming the youngest heavyweight champion of all time.

Despite his mesmerising rise, Tyson would eventually burn out and multiple controversial issues in his life, including a prison sentence, meant he would fall off the top spot.

When resuming his career upon his release, the landscape had changed, and Tyson found himself falling short in high-profile fights against the likes of Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis.

After an embarrassing loss to Kevin McBride in 2005, Tyson walked away from professional boxing, but his name is constantly linked to the lucrative exhibition scene after a 2020 bout with Roy Jones Jr.

In the 58 professional bouts Tyson competed in, what fight does he consider his best ever performance?

“The Michael Spinks fight was my best performance,” said Tyson when speaking to The Ring in 2014 about his one round destruction of Spinks in 1988.

“I kept moving forward and threw a couple of great three-punch combinations. When I finally caught him on the ropes, I remember turning southpaw in order to throw my right hand to the body and right uppercut.”
