The WBC heavyweight king is one of NINE pro boxers on his side of the family and his ancestors were all trained as fighting men.
By Tyson’s side throughout his rise to the very top of the sport has been wife Paris – and she has some skilful fighters on her side of the family too.
Her nephew is Levi Frankham, and his cousins are also boxers sharing the same surname, Josh and Charlie.
Charlie’s great grandfather Johnny even boxed the legendary Muhammad Ali when ‘The Greatest’ had exhibition fights in the UK after he was banned from boxing.
The now 73-year-old sensationally FLOORED Ali – something that has inspired his son into the sport.
Here, SunSport checks out how Paris’ extended family are making their own waves trading leather.
Super-welterweight prospect Levi Frankham will be back in the ring on April 29 at the world-famous York Hall in London.
Frankham, 21, made his professional boxing debut last April against Paul Cummings and has so far racked up a perfect 3-0 record.
The Cranleigh clubber, who won numerous titles as an amateur, was last in action last November, defeating Craig Sumner via decision.
He is Paris’ nephew, and was even page boy for his auntie and Tyson’ wedding at Peter in Chains Church in Doncaster back in 2008.
Joshua Frankham turned pro in 2020, beating journeyman Kevin McCauley on debut on points.
He has gone on to win another four fights, the last two by KO at welterweight.
Four-time national amateur champ, Joshua is boxing under Frank Warren’s Queensberry promotions.
Charles Frankham made his debut in May 2019, and has racked up four straight wins at super-featherweight.
The 22-year-old is tipped to go far in the sport.
Charles has been inspired by great-granddad Johnny – and it’s no surprise after he FLOORED the great Muhammad Ali 41 years ago.
The exhibition bout between the light-heavyweight from Reading and the Louisville Lip went eight rounds, but the photo of the ex-British champ standing over Ali will last a lifetime.
Johnny had 40 bouts as a professional, winning 28, losing 11 and drawing one. He retired in 1976.
