Mike Tyson's signature move looks even more brutal in slow-motion

  • Tom Ward

Mike Tyson‘s favourite boxing combination has been doing the rounds on social media in recent weeks.

Otherwise known as ‘Iron Mike’, the youngest heavyweight champion in the history of the sport always favoured the right hook to the body, right uppercut to the chin, which almost always ended in the exact same way.

Well, what if we told you that it looks even more brutal in slow-motion?

New ‘slo-mo’ footage of Tyson’s preferred fight-ending sequence has been released – paying a compliment to the boxing legend’s mastery of the sweet science.

Slowed down footage shared on Twitter shows just how accurately Tyson – who made a remarkable comeback against Roy Jones Jr at the age of 54 – managed to find a home for his right hooks and uppercuts.

The montage starts with Tyson perfecting the technique with his legendary trainer Cus D’Amato.

It is then followed by footage of Tyson using it against Jesse Ferguson – who bounces off the ropes before crumpling to the floor in sheer agony.

Back then the American – who was still unbeaten at that time – was barely in his twenties.

While the video also shows Tyson doing the exact same thing to Boyd albeit in a slightly different way.

In the clip, Boyd attempts to employ a crouching stance to get under the incoming punches, only for Tyson to crack him straight in the ribs before rocking his head back with a right hand which lifted him off his feet.

Boyd went down flat on his back, spread-eagled, and the referee stopped it immediately.

Strangely though that wasn’t enough to put him off fighting again as he went on to have 63 more fights before retiring in 2003.

To his credit, Ferguson can be seen trying to cover up as he is backed into the left-hand corner of the ring, but unfortunately for him a right uppercut slips straight through the guard sending him crashing to the canvas.

Which New York borough was Mike Tyson born in?

As reported by GIVEMESPORT, Tyson was recently linked to an appearance against YouTube star Logan Paul.

However, the 55-year-old American has effectively ruled out a return to the ring in the future, as it seems he has apparently lost interest in ever fighting again.

During an appearance on the Nelk Boys Full Send podcast earlier this year, he said: “You know something that’s interesting. I think it was Jake, the youngest one. I’m not even interested in doing this stuff.

“It was just fun at first. If it was back when I first started, yes, and we were both fighting on the same card and both active, yeah, we could do it. But it just turned … it just turned bad. It didn’t turn out right.

“Every, they say it’s 10, but it’s like every 12, or 13 months … boom, something’s missing.

“Like something’s missing. I give it to … boom, I’m losing muscle mass. Boom, it’s something.

“It’s always something different. And I don’t know, I’m just … guys want to fight me for 100 million bucks. I don’t think I’ll ever do stuff like that anymore.

“I wanted to do it the first time just for fun to have fun and then some people took it to another level and made it financial, and then the fun went out of it.”
