The former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson has held all three major championship belts that boxing has to offer. You also probably know that he was once disqualified for biting Evander Holyfield’s ear. But did you know Tyson is a proud Muslim?

In 2013, Tyson told Fox 411, “I’m very grateful to be a Muslim. Allah doesn’t need me, I need Allah.” In an October 2014 interview with Howard Stern, Tyson then spoke out against Islamic extremists: “I’m really appalled... Religion is not bad. It’s people that make religion bad.”
