Mike Tyson is one of the most recognized celebrities for his sporting exploits in the ring, but also for his history of scandals. The former boxer was born in the slums of New York. He had a hard life, in which from a very young age he learned that force and blows were synonymous with earning respect. Not to mention, he was also a way to get money off the streets.
A climate of violence that brought many consequences in his life. Since he was a child he got into trouble, and spent time in the correctional facility. He had such a distinct strength that he decided to bring it into the world of boxing. A man that many considered as someone built to rob, beat and capable of living in the worst human conditions.
However, who decided to bet on him was D’Amato, since it allowed him to know the effort and love for this sport. A professional career, where Mike stood out, although he constantly needed to release energy. Everything seemed to indicate that Tyson did not have it easy, his life history in one way or another marked him, and that was a reflection in his combats and in his daily life.
Nonetheless, Tyson was able to afford a life of great luxury and enjoy being behind the wheel of incredible cars. Among them, we can highlight his Gold Bugatti Veyron. A car that was exclusive design of the brand and with a terrible power. One of the most luxurious cars on the market that has a W16 engine and has a top speed of 407 km/h.
This car has valued at more than $10 million. However, this allows us to measure the great fortune that the boxer had. Nonetheless, parties, women, alcohol and drugs were the reasons why Mike lost everything. In addition, he was accused of raping an 18-year-old model and was sentenced to 6 years in prison. Due to this, between lawyers, loss of contracts and compensation, it is estimated that he lost more than 50 million dollars. However, he served 4 years in prison and was able to get out for good behavior.
At one point, his career was worth $300 million. But lavish spending and some poor financial decisions led him to lose everything. In 2003, Mike Tyson filed for bankruptcy.. He returned to the ring, but it was never the same. Tyson did not recover that life full of luxuries and excesses, that dangerous slide that led him to loss. However, little by little, it is back on its feet and continues to amaze us with its outstanding cars.
