1. Iron Mike
“Mike Tyson is the most ruthless, unforgiving, untouchable, scariest fighter of all time in any form of professional fighting,” @Jvom07 tweeted. In sum, there is no doubt that Tyson was one of the most intimidating athletes in sports history. The New York native was a fearsome knockout artist but also a volatile personality. He served time for rape and once bit off Evander Holyfield’s ear.
Meanwhile, he was a terrifying personality in the ring. He came out in his black shorts with little fanfare and a menacing look in his eyes. “The way Tyson was eyeballing McNeeley in their fight was scary as hell,” LuvDumplings wrote. “Don’t think I ever saw such a menacing look in the ring like that before.” This came after Tyson’s release from prison in 1994 and reflects his fearsome aura.
