The name Tyson is synonymous with the sport of boxing. Iron Mike Tyson was such a ferocious heavyweight in his prime years that his name alone held an aura of intimidation and the hall of famer is held in the highest of esteem despite his troubled times later on in his career. The former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world was also the youngest, winning the WBC IBF and WBA titles at just 20 years of age.
Now a young prospect going by the infamous name of Tyson is stepping through the ropes and is knocking fighters out left right and centre. Ok there is certainly no direct comparison to the great man himself. He isn’t a heavyweight who’s very presence strikes fear into opponents and the watching fight fans and he isn’t the troubled kid from Brooklyn in the concrete jungle of New York City but this boxer, just like his namesake, has got two things in common; his name and big power in his fists.
Jack ‘Bullseye’ Tyson is an 18-year old professional in the 147lbs welterweight division. Originally hailing from the west coast city of Los Angeles in the USA, he is now training in Tijuana, Baja California in Mexico and the machismo, guns blazing Mexican style of fighting seems as if it could be rubbing off on him. He has a 100% knockout record from his first ten fights and even more impressively seven of those ten KO victories have come by way of a 1st round knockout.
He hasn’t yet faced anyone of note yet but to possess enough power to be knocking out fully mature journeymen fighters at the young age of 18 is impressive. It will be interesting to see if he can develop on and keep stopping opponents as his level of opposition increases. The terror of Tijuana is an orthodox and compact fighter and one to watch for boxing fans in the coming years.
