Mike Tyson Goes Under the Knife For a Dental Makeover
In a recent interview, Mike Tyson revealed that he’s going under the knife for a dental makeover. Although Tyson admitted that he is focusing on acting, his new transformed teeth suggest that he is finally leaving the gap-toothed club. What exactly is a diastema? It is the space between two teeth (or molars and premolars in his case). It is a natural feature in many mammals, most often between the upper incisors and lower molars. Diaastemata are caused by an unequal relationship between the teeth and jaw.
Tyson’s front tooth was once a gold-capped one. This caused some controversy. Kiki Tyson, Tyson’s wife, claims that Tiger is responsible for the missing tooth. The boxer has two writing projects with Tyson’s film company. Despite Tyson’s other talents, Tyson’s crooked front teeth are a source of fascination. He took risks in his relationship and was rewarded by a resurgence in his career.
Some fans also question whether Mike Tyson’s best asset is his teeth. Although it is impossible to determine if Tyson’s teeth have been damaged, they do show that he has a lot of power. Some even speculate that he could be the next “Barbie” and try to cut Evander Holyfield’s teeth. He has been called Dracula, and has been accused mouthwashing, ear-blowing and ear-flapping.
Although Evander Holyfield still has the scar from Mike Tyson’s teeth on his face, the two boxers are now best friends. Tyson and Evander Holyfield fought on June 28, 1997 at the Las Vegas strip. It was advertised as “The Sound And The Fury”. It was later renamed as the “Bite Fight.” Tyson was already known as “The Baddest Man on Planet” by Evander Holyfield.
The infamous ring incident at the MGM Grand Prix in Las Vegas has been considered one of the most gruesome fights in history. Tyson’s teeth bit Evander Holyfield’s ear in the ring and, after the fight, he ate some fava beans and chilled Ciante. Mills Lane, the referee, ordered Tyson’s gum shield to be replaced after the fight. Tyson removed the mouthpiece and sunk his teeth into Holyfield’s right ear, chewing off several inches of cartilage. Holyfield cried in pain immediately, and Tyson justified his actions by stating that he had children.
A training camp colleague of Tyson claims that the former boxing champ knocked out a sparring partner’s tooth during training camp. The former world champion will make his return to boxing on Saturday, where he will take on Roy Jones Jr. in a bout that has broken all of the pay-per-view records. The fight is controversial and has a no knockout rule. If any fighter is cut in the ring, the fight will be stopped.
