Mike Tyson’s Dressing Room Behaviour Showed His Transformation Into An 'Intimidating Monster'

Mike Tyson’s Dressing Room Behaviour Showed His Transformation Into An 'Intimidating Monster'

Boxing legend Mike Tyson was cloaked in an incredible aura of intimidation as he prepared for his fights in the dressing room.

The 53-year-old ex-boxing superstar is widely revered as one of the most dangerous punchers and best boxers in history.

And footage has now emerged of the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' in his dressing room ahead of the Lou Savarese fight in 2000.

While he was far from the prime Tyson of the 1980s, the boxing legend appeared to relish the fact that he was in his element.

'Iron' Mike practised his trademark 'peek-a-boo' technique, despite making it difficult for one of his team members to tie up his groin guard.

Tyson became increasingly aggressive watching a fight on TV and started trash-talking before two members of his camp smeared his upper body.

Even fans have acknowledged how Tyson acted like a caged animal that was ready to be let loose on his prey.

And the entrance he had in his first-round demolition of Michael Spinks remains one of the most spine-chilling ring walks in history.
