Mike Tyson’s Menacing Ring Walk Was More Intimidating Than Deontay Wilder’s Entrance

Boxing legend Mike Tyson created a bone-chilling aura when he made his way down to the ring and without the need for an over-the-top entrance.

The 53-year-old ex-undisputed heavyweight champ was one of the most feared and destructive boxers during his prime.


And British Boxing tweeted out a clip of Tyson and how one of his simple entrances created "an aura of menace."


The 'Baddest Man on the Planet' came out with no robe, socks or entrance theme and showed very little emotion.

One of the commentators says that Tyson admitted his entrance made him "feel like a warrior" and that "he's ready to go to work."

Old School Boxing Club trainer Joe Delguyd also praised Tyson for his mentality in the ring walk and being more focused on getting to the fight.


"When you go to war it's Not [sic] like going to a party or a dance," he tweeted.

"You don't give a f**k about ring walks, songs or uniforms. You just want to get in there and fight. Be the steak not the sizzle. Be like @MikeTyson."

British Boxing previously tweeted a clip of when Tyson ditched the "traditional music and enters the ring to a chorus of noise, clanging chains and [sinister] tones" against Michael Spinks.


Fans have also argued that Deontay Wilder needs to take a page out of 'Iron' Mike's book after blaming his defeat to Tyson Fury on his extravagant 40-pound costume.


Tyson recently went viral after he delivered an emotionally-charged speech about feeling vulnerable after boxing and how he feared his old persona coming back.
