Mike Tyson is a former heavyweight boxing champion and definitely deserves a spot on Famous Bald People.
Born on the 30th of June 1966 in Brownsville, Brooklyn, New York, United States.
In the mid to late 1980’s Mike Tyson had a bald spot on the front part of his head just above his hairline.
This was apparently due to stress of boxing and the hounding from the World’s media. A bald patch that appears on ones head is in fact quite common and often resolves itself within a few months as it did in Mike’s case.
When Tyson First Shaved His Head Bald
As reported on July 9, 1991 in ‘The Baltimore Sun‘. Mike shaved his head bald to try and convince George Foreman to fight him.
Don King, Tyson’s manager and promoter at the time was quoted as saying ‘Tyson shaved his head in deference to the fighting preacher’.
And Don King again…
“Mike has shaved his head in tribute to Foreman. This starts the promotional wheels turning. Two bald monks of the same clan, the fighting preacher against the villain, Peck’s bad boy.
“Isn’t bald beautiful?” King asked.
Unfortunately for boxing fans, the fight between Tyson and Foreman never went ahead.
From 1991 and with a shaved head, Tyson seemed to switch back and forth over the years from short visible hair to fully shaved head. The style he prefers to this day.
