76% Of People Would Take Uppercut From A Prime Mike Tyson For £10 Million
Mike "The Baddest Man on the Planet" Tyson will forever be known as having one of the most devastating punches in boxing.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion recorded a number of memorable knockouts with those powerful shots, including the 1998 demolition of Michael Spinks, who was previously undefeated until "Iron Mike" knocked him out after 91 seconds in Atlantic City.
Tyson's famous victory over Trevor Berbick in 1986, when he became the youngest heavyweight champion in history at the age of 20 years and four months, also lives long in the memory.
Not to mention that brutal overhead right to Henry Tilman in Las Vegas four years later.

So after taking those previously mentioned bouts into consideration, would you take an uppercut to the chin from a prime Mike Tyson for the tidy sum of £10 million?
We asked our audience on SPORTbible's official Twitter account if they would indeed do such a petrifying act and we expected the majority to say "no".
But to our shock and horror, it actually turns out a huge amount of people WOULD stand there and take a punch from one of the greatest of all time.
In fact, 76% of our audience decided to take the millions in exchange for a smack, while a sensible 24% would walk away without the cash - and without serious injury.
Here's are some of the stand out comments from that poll.
"Most definitely," said one Twitter user. "First thing I would spend the money on would be removing my teeth from my forehead." while another said: "Reconstructive surgery is going to probably cost half of that. Out of work for 6 months. It will probably come out even."
I don't know if you'd be alive to spend it....
