Yesterday evening against Mariusz Wach, Frazer Clarke enjoyed a remarkable triumph. Anthony Joshua took to Instagram to congratulate Frazer while also making a playful dig at Mike Tyson.
One of the most divisive individuals in boxing history is Mike, the former undisputed world heavyweight champion. There hasn’t, however, been any visible dispute between him and Anthony Joshua, but the British fighter appeared to poke fun at ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ in his most recent Instagram story.
Which Iron Mike incident did Anthony Joshua point out?
Mike Tyson’s busiest year of his career, 1985, was technically pointed out by Joshua. Tyson had a super-packed calender, participating in a total of 15 fights and winning every one of them by knockout to solidify his position as a rising heavyweight star that year.

AJ hinted at the legendary year of Mike to appreciate Frazer by saying,” I remember Iron Mike having 15 fights one year. Against who tho? Exactly. Who remembers? It’s not how you start. It’s how you finish.”
However, in 1986, at the age of 20, Mike became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion thanks to a run of victories that catapulted him to that accomplishment. Tyson’s career was greatly impacted by the hectic 1985 he spent.

"I started well, definitely faded. A lot I did right and wrong, not saying I would've lost [to Fabio Wardley], I was an eager beaver. Gonna work on myself, sometimes it's good to listen to the knowledge."

The Briton finally made his pro boxing debut in 2022 after representing England in a number of major events, such as the Summer Olympics, the European Championships, and the Commonwealth Games.
