18 Yeаrs After Retirement, Mike Tyson Surrenders “Bаddest Mаn on tһe Plаnet” Crown to His Suссessor

The title of ‘Baddest Man on the Planet,’ which was once reserved for heavyweight boxing superstars, has undergone a drastic transformation. It was a title designated for the most dominant heavyweight fighter during Mike Tyson’s fierce heyday. However, as the battle game progressed, this distinguished title may have evolved as well.

It’s been nearly a week since two of the best heavyweights went face-to-face against each other. Tyson Fury won the controversial boxing match via split decision against Francis Ngannou. But for Mike Tyson, the winner seems to be someone else.

It has been over 18 years since Mike Tyson retired from boxing, who is also known as the “Baddest Man on the Planet”. Recently, he posted an Instagram story that indicated his retirement from that title as well.

Previously, Francis posted an image of him and Mike Tyson on his Instagram handle, which Mike Tyson reposted on his Instagram story, saying, “Brother I’m humbled and proud beyond measure. You have proven to be the baddest man on the planet“. The post from Mike indicates that he is giving his “Baddest Man on the Planet” title to ‘The Predator,’ Francis Ngannou.

Coming from Mike Tyson himself, Francis Ngannou must be feeling proud. Ngannou is a man who had to struggle a lot. Making his way from Cameroon to illegally entering Europe out of desperation, he has gone through a lot to achieve what he is today.

Francis Ngannou has all the support and trust from fans all around the world. And he just proved why he is one of the best heavyweights the world has to offer. Tyson Fury, with over 25 years of experience in boxing, couldn’t stop ‘The Predator’. Who would even stand a chance?

Mike Tyson was instrumental in making Francis Ngannou’s dream fight a reality

Since Francis Ngannou was 10, he has dreamed of being like a man. That man is none other than ‘The Iron,’ Mike Tyson. When he was 10, he didn’t know who Mike Tyson was or how he threw a punch, but Tyson being a global icon at the time made him follow in the former Heavyweight Champion’s footsteps.

At the age of 20, ‘The Predator’ immigrated to Paris from Cameroon after a 14-month journey through Nigeria, Morocco, and Spain. He won the UFC heavyweight title only eight years after his first training session. He left the UFC as heavyweight champion in 2022 to pursue a deal that would allow him to follow his childhood ambition of boxing professionally.

Ngannou had to face the World Champ Tyson Fury in his boxing debut. During this dire time, his idol, Mike Tyson, took the decision to help him, joining Ngannou’s team to assist in monitoring his training. This helped him build his morale before getting into the fight. It is a feeling to have your childhood idol appear in your corner and later call you the “Baddest Man on the Planet”.

Now, after his excellent performance against Tyson Fury, Ngannou has opened new doors for his boxing career. But some rumors have been spreading that Ngannou might get his revenge against Tyson Fury in a rematch after Fury faces Oleksandr Usyk to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion. However, it is still to be seen when the match will occur. Do let us know what you feel about the rematch in the comments.
