How Mike Tyson Got Revenge For Muhammad Ali.

The legacies of Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson will always be remembered as legends in the world of heavyweight boxing. An interesting story that is not well-known is that Mike Tyson, in a way, avenged the defeat Ali experienced in his penultimate bout against Larry Holmes.

When Mike Tyson was 14 years old and already showing promise as a boxer, he spoke to Ali on the phone and promised to avenge the loss. Seven years later, Tyson kept his promise by defeating Holmes in just four rounds. Tyson later referred to this moment as a highlight of his career.

Adding to the satisfaction of the revenge was the fact that Mike Tyson was able to achieve it in front of Muhammad Ali himself.
