Thirty years later, a woman who wished to remain anonymous during the proceedings because she feared “attacks from the media and all the fans” of Mike Tyson filed a “rape” complaint in Albany County Civil Court in early January. She is seeking $5 million in damages.

But after prison, Mike Tyson fails to retain his titles, in particular, in 1996 he was defeated by Evander Holyfield during a memorable match in which he bit his opponent’s ears until they bled. Overwhelmed by depression and addictions, he continued to make people talk about himself, in particular by acting in a one-man show where he talks about his ups and downs.

In November 2020, he returned to the ring at the age of 54 against Roy Jones Jr (51) in a draw.
