Mike Tyson isn't a strange name to boxing fans worldwide. He was the first heavyweight to hold the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles at the same time. The 53-year-old legend caught the media attention last week after he posted a short training video that showed he still possesses plenty of punching power. He was the youngest heavyweight champion in history after defeating  Trevor Berbick in 1986 at the age of 20. He won 50 out of 58 professional fights before retirement.

Tyson's known for his intimidating boxing style with ferocious punches. He's largely considered the best heavyweight of all time. Mike Tyson holds the third-longest consecutive championship reign in history with eight successful defenses.  He was ranked first in the ESPN list of "The Hardest Hitters in Heavyweight History".

Mike Tyson retired from professional boxing in 2006 after his consecutive losses to Danny William and Kevin McBride. He was known for bad habits and controversial behaviors both in and out of the ring. Tyson tends to go overboard with partying and spending money uncontrollably. The "Iron Mike" declared bankruptcy in 2003 with a $23 million debt, despite the fact that he received more than $330 million during his career.

Tyson later said that he was considering making a comeback to the fighting ring to raise money for charity.  His newest video on Instagram displayed the boxer's ferocious power as he growled through a workout session hitting the pads. Tyson showed the world why his punch is one of the sport's most fearsome.

After the information about Mike Tyson's possible return, challengers have been lining up to take a chance at the legendary "Iron Mike". Sonny Bill Williams, a New Zealand rugby player turned boxing, boasted his 7-0-0 record. An Australian former NRL player Paul Gallen also shared a 9-0-1 record in the ring. Many view them as potential opponents of Mike Tyson.

However, the media attention seems to lean towards Evander Holyfield - another legendary champion that Tyson had engaged in several epic bouts with. The 57-year-old boxer has fought Tyson twice in both of their prime time. "Iron Mike" was disqualified in the 1997 rematch at Las Vegas' MGM Grand for biting Holyfield's ear. Despite the infamous incident, Evan Holyfield claimed that he held no grudge against Tyson, and has also been practicing recently.
