There’s no hiding from the fact he has had a mind boggling career away from the ring, from keeping pet tigers that ended up attacking trespassers or releasing edibles that refer back to his infamous ear bite on Evander Holyfield’s ear.

Despite all his controversies away from the ring and in the ring, he still will go down as one of the best, fighters of all time, entertaining us all in a plethora of ways, something he continues to do, but he certainly kept his boxing career at the forefront of his life, especially as a young boxer.

Mike Tyson at 18

Footage has gone viral of Iron Mike training at the age of 18, watching it is scary viewing. The former heavyweight champion is putting his neck through absolute torture at such an early age, showing just how gruelling it is if you want to get to the very top in professional boxing.

He rolls around on the floor, using his neck to keep himself up, rotating the weight around on his head to strengthen his neck, something that clearly worked an absolute treat for the fighter, who at the age of 18 already had a neck that was 20 inches in circumference.

It certainly doesn’t look like something you’d want to try at home on your own, the training routine looks quite dangerous, but it certainly worked along with his other training, as Iron Mike went on to be one of the greatest fighters to ever do it.

'I did YouTube's most popular "ab workout" every day for a week, here's what happened' .
My before and after pic might surprise you.The Daisy Keech ab workout has had over 23 million views on YouTube since it went live last year. Keech claims that by doing the ab workout every day, you could carve yourself the perfect ‘hourglass waist’, but I’m sceptical. Exercise alone is highly unlikely to change your body shape – various other factors are at play, like genetics and nutrition (check out our complete guide on how to get a smaller waist) – so to promise a ‘cinched waist’ through a single workout seems deductive.
