Greatest heavyweight ring walk – mike Tyson’s – Tyson v spinks. #fightnight— knighty (@___knighty) September 22, 2018
His body posture, style, looks, face, eyes, and everything else spread a sense of fear. The champion or as one would say, the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ just came out without a robe, socks, or an entrance theme song. His face was blank, and one could tell that he was strong and powerful just by his body language.
According to one of the commentators, Mike admitted this as well. He agreed to the fact that his entrance made him “feel like a warrior.” Tyson also said that “he’s ready to go to work.” Joe took to Twitter and wrote how Tyson used to enter like he was going to war and not to a party or a dance. How Mike never bothered about songs, ring walks, or uniforms. That all he wanted was to just get in there and be able to fight — to be the steak and not just the sizzle.
Mike Tyson chucked the background music and the traditional ways of making an over-the-top entrance. He was one fighter who could simply intimidate everyone around with the way he walked. British Boxing took to its Twitter account and wrote, “Mike Tyson ditches the traditional music and enters the ring to a chorus of noise, clanging chains, and sinister tones. In his 1988 one round annihilation of former champion Micheal Spinks. What are your favorite ring entrances?”
