“I saw somebody who has his whole body from neck to toe and he was fit like myself and he looked beautiful and I said ‘Wow.’ He’s body was all tattooed out and I thought that was beautiful,” he added.

During his prime, Tyson’s former coach Jeff Fenech decided to leave the training camp a week before the fight against Clifford Etienne because the former champ decided to have his face tattooed up. In a recent interview with Fox League Live (via, Fenech revealed the entire story from his point of view and admitted that he still regrets not being part of the said fight.

According to Fenech, a week before the fight, Tyson didn’t show up to training. Instead, he went out to meet a friend who was a tattoo artist and ended up getting a tattoo on his face.

Fenech was so upset with Tyson’s decision to skip training for a tattoo. He was certain that Tyson couldn’t fight with face still healing from the tattoo. As per Fenech, it was an attempt to skip the fight because Tyson was not really prepared to fight from the beginning. The veteran coach was so disappointed in Tyson that he decided to leave that very night. But even without a coach, Tyson still managed to KO Etienne in the very first round.

“A week later he fought and knocked out Clifford in one round and I was upset. I was happy for Mike that he won, but I was also upset that I had trained him for eight weeks and I wasn’t a part of that win,” Fenech said.
