At the tender age of 21, Mike Tyson became the youngest fighter ever to unify the three major boxing belts. But allegedly, for some reason he didn’t realize that pugilism is best left in the ring, which doomed his marriage to actress Robin Givens. The union itself was a boxing match of sorts in which Tyson, who married Givens when he was the most feared fighter on the planet, claims he was put in a continual battle for his manhood and dignity by a woman who just wanted his money. Givens, on the other hand, said she lived in fear of him, particularly after a well-publicized television interview with the couple by Barbara Walters when Givens says he flew into a rage in their New Jersey mansion.
After that, enough was enough for both of them. They ended their tumultuous relationship, which seemed to inspire so many reality shows today, by Tyson offering Givens $10 million. Both went on with their careers with new marriages — and divorces.
