In February 2020, Mike Tyson went popular overnight on social media. Headline news was a strange story that said the famous boxer was offering $10 million to any guy who would marry his daughter, Mikey Lorna Tyson. Mikey Lorna Tyson is the first child that the 55-year-old had with his ex-girlfriend, Kimberly Scarborough. She was born in 1990. Mikey is now 30 years old, and stories on social media say that Mike Tyson has made a strange marriage proposal for his daughter.
This piece of news caused a huge stir on social media all of a sudden. Large national news outlets picked up on this and ran stories saying that Mike Tyson had made an offer of $10 million. Even so, this turned out to be a big media failure, and it was all because of careless reporting. Hit News releases a story from inside that almost immediately goes viral. It didn’t take long to catch Mike Tyson’s eye. The famous boxer suddenly denied all of the claims and called the story “absolutely false.”
In response, the youngest winner who was overweight wrote a warning to a journalism magazine for spreading false information. Soon after that, it seems that his wa’rning, the real story, was taken down. But by that time, a lot of online journalists had already spread the false story. In an episode of the Hotboxin’ show with former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, Mike Tyson talked about what made him go so far in his career. He said that he always kept an eye on players who left and kept coming back, and he always beat those who had never lost.
