Mike Tyson to become a Jordan Brand Ambassador
According to recent reports from local Portland Media, Mike Tyson met with executives of the Jordan Brand at the Nike World Headquarters in Portland Oregon last week. The Jordan Brand has been paving its way into the world of boxing signing boxers Roy Jones Jr. And Andre Ward in recent years, so it would be no surprise to hear of such a deal developing between the two. Could this make Mike Tyson a Jordan Brand Ambassador? I think it may be too early to tell, however there is no denying the incredible accomplishments Tyson achieved during his boxing career. Mike Tyson still holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles at 20 years old, and the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles. Mike Tyson has worked hard to change his image outside of the ring. Tyson, now married to Kiki Tyson(Lakiha Spicer) lives in Las Vegas with their two children Milan and Morocco. Tyson has established a charity foundation- Mike Tyson Cares, with the mission to “give kids a fighting chance.” Tyson has also launched a broadway style show called Mike Tyson: The Undisputed Truth directed by Spike Lee and is the star of his own show on Fox Sports 1- Being Mike Tyson. His efforts to live a clean and sober life are evident which could make him a perfect fit for such a role while helping up and coming boxers. The deal between Tyson and the Jordan Brand was developed over the last several months by Matt Jones a representative of FS Online Marketing, a marketing agency based out of Miami Florida.
