According to former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, the current generation of boxers have a lack of personalities - and that factor has contributed to its decline.


“It’s just different because they are not the big personalities,” said the 52-year-old when asked why boxing’s popularity declined after the 80s.


“Most of the (current) fighters are very straightforward guys. They are real nice guys and they are good individuals.


“I was always in trouble. I was always here and there so that’s why I was always in the papers and that’s why it’s different. These are really straight gentlemen guys. I was really wild and a young kid getting into trouble.”


Note that during his career, the American twice went to prison. One more time he faced problems with the law after the end of his career.
