Mike Tyson reveals the one person who could withstand his punching power

The Baddest Man on the Planet admitted there was one fighter who could handle his power whilst in his prime at heavyweight.

Mike Tyson has revealed one fighter who was able to take punishment from his heavy hands inside the ring.

"Iron" Mike is one of the most famous boxers of all-time and is hailed as the man who revived heavyweight boxing in the 1980s.

Frank Bruno, Michael Spinks and Larry Holmes are just a few of the heavyweight legends to have felt the force of Tyson's power.

Tyson's overall record is 50 wins with 44 coming via knockout. His 76% KO ratio is the fifth highest of any heavyweight world champion in boxing history.

The Baddest Man on the Planet has revealed, despite dominating the 80s, there was one fighter he fought who had a solid chin.

"I hit Jose Ribalta with everything, and he took everything and kept coming back for more. Jose Ribalta stood toe to toe with me. He was very strong in the clinches," Tyson exclusively told Ring TV.

Despite his claims, Tyson eventually knocked the Cuban out in the 10th and final round.

Tyson confirms only regret

The boxing legend has one regret from his career and that was not making the fight between himself and George Foreman.

Tyson and Foreman are widely viewed as the biggest punchers in boxing history.

The pair were in 'serious talks' according to Foreman, who claimed Tyson 'ducked him' after receiving advice from iconic trainer Cus D'Amato.

"I would have liked to fight George Foreman. There have been many fans who wondered who was the bigger puncher.

"I would have liked to put an end to the discussion one way or the other," Tyson revealed.

Tyson made his ring comeback in an eight-round exhibition against Roy Jones Jr. in November. The bout ended in a draw with no judges scoring the contest.

He is plotting a second fight in September with Lennox Lewis set to be his opponent, according to Tyson himself.
