22 November. Today exactly 18 years ago Mike Tyson became the youngest Heavyweight Champion of the world by a brutal win over Trevor Berbick. With before unseen power and viciousness in a title-fight young Mike Tyson won his first and personally one of the most important title. By winning the WBC belt he payed homage to his late mentor Cus D'Amato proving the belief of his mentor was not misplaced,..that he not only could be the next heavyweight champion of the world,...but also the youngest heayyweight champion of the world. A record not broken since then and established for a long time to come. By winning the WBC belt Mike also started the unification series; an amazing, unique and bold effort only few great champions ever could accomplish. Today 18 years ago Mike Tysons rule of his first era began and he did it in style no one else has ever done since. Today 18 years ago the whole world saw the phenomenal called Mike Tyson, the whole world was stunned by the talent, force and power displayed by him and the whole world since then has not forgotten this day.
