Kirkpatrick abandoned the family after the birth of young Tyson. Succumbing to the financial burden, the family relocated from Bedford-Stuyvesant to Brownsville when Tyson was ten years of age.
Ever since his early years, Tyson was involved in fights; of course those at this stage were basically only for personal reasons and did not have a professional ground.
He resorted to his fist to solve problems of bullying. By the time Tyson stepped into teenage, he had already been arrested 38 times for knocking out grown men from the street.
Young Tyson completed his schooling from Tryon School for Boys in Johnstown, New York. It was there that Bobby Stewart, a juvenile detention center counselor and former boxer, noticed Tyson’s boxing skills. He honed them a little before introducing the destined-to-be champion to Cus D’Amato.
Under Amato’s guidance, Tyson trained for the sport. He was under the full-time custody of Amato who set a rigorous training schedule for the aspiring boxer. Tyson attended Catskill High School by the day and practiced in the ring by the evening. However, he did not graduate from the school and left his studies as a junior.
Mike Tyson has been married thrice and has fathered eight children.
As at the age of 13, Tyson had already been arrested 38 times. His saving grace came when he was forced to attend the Tryon School for Boys. At the Tryon School, Tyson’s talent in the boxing ring was evident.
Bobby Stewart, a juvenile detention center counselor and former boxer, began to train Tyson and would eventually introduce the phenom to the legendary boxing manager and trainer, Cus D’Amato.

Tyson would go on to win 26 out of 28 professional fights by KO/TKO and began to attract media attention. Tragically, Cus D’Amato died in November 1985.
