The mere mention of “Iron Mike” used to send chills down the spine of fans and fellow boxers alike, but he must have been the only one feeling afraid when he filed for bankruptcy in 2003. From his expensive divorce to his penchant for exotic animals (he owned tigers), it’s no surprise Tyson’s reported $300 million in career earnings went down the drain. But Tyson’s had a bit of a comeback recently, his latest book Undisputed Truth has done well, and with some recent movie cameos and public appearances, he seems to be doing much better these days.
These athletes once had millions—and then lost it all.
