Mike Tyson, known for his incredible power and fearsome reputation, recently named the only heavyweight boxer who hit harder than him. 

Tyson, whose early career was marked by an impressive 19 consecutive knockout wins—12 in the first round—claimed his first world title at just 20 years old, a record still unbeaten.

In a discussion with FightCamp, Tyson brought up George Foreman, a legendary figure in boxing. Tyson admitted that "Big George" had unmatched power. He acknowledged, "I can't match somebody's power who's that big and that much man.

Only thing that allowed me to be exciting was that I did it faster than the other guys."

Tyson also dismissed the idea that his power was natural, saying, "Nothing about me was natural. Only my desire to win was natural, I had a great teacher." He emphasized that while a coach can teach many things, the desire to win must come from within.

Tyson was scheduled to make a comeback to the professional ring for the first time in nearly 20 years against Jake Paul in August. However, due to a flare-up of an ulcer, the fight has been postponed, and a new date has not yet been set.
