Mike Tyson holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles. He is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1985 to 2005. He holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title at 20 years, 4 months and 22 days old. Tyson won his first 19 professional fights by knockout, 12 of them in the first round. He won the WBC title in 1986 after stopping Trevor Berbick in two rounds, and added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker in 1987. This made Tyson the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles, and the only heavyweight to successively unify them.

Mike Tyson holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles.
