Tyson was clearly destined for the top thanks to his raw power, often put down to his muscular frame.

It was aged 20, when he became world champion for the first time, that he begun to live up to his 'Baddest Man on the Planet' moniker.

He'd maintain an intimidating physique for the remainder of his career, despite a number of issues inside and outside of the ring.

Tyson has admitted to being a cocaine addict previously and it was in 2009 he realised he had hit 'rock bottom', even ballooning to over 400lbs.

The Brooklyn-native explained he once started fighting prostitutes while high on drugs, as he was paranoid they wanted to steal from him.

He explained to Las Vegas Weekly in 2012 per Daily Mail: "This is really dark. I am in my hotel suite, I've got seven women there, and I have a morphine drip, and I had my cocaine, and I had my (Viagra-like pill) Cialis, I had my marijuana, I had the Hennessy.

"And I am at my lowest point because I got paranoid and I thought these women were trying to rob me and set me up.

"I started beating them. I was in a dark place. There was a purpose, though, because I didn't want to give them any more of my soul."

But the last seven years have seen Tyson turn his life around in the most remarkable way.

He now lives a healthier lifestyle and recent training pictures show he could be in the best shape of his life, aged 54.

"I just came out to my partner's house. She lives out here, [Dana Point, California]" Tyson told FightHype earlier this year. "We've just been training, boxing, and it feels great man. I come from 289lbs to 220lbs. And I feel good."
