Probably one of the most feared heavyweight fighters in boxing history was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame today (June 12).
Iron Mike Tyson, who became the youngest heavyweight champion in history when he won the belt at 20 years old, was at a loss for words when it came time to receive the honor.
"I've got to be goofy about this or I'll get emotional up here," Tyson said before giving a very short speech, then exiting the stage. "Hey guys, I can't even finish this stuff. Thank you. Thank you."
Sylvester Stallone was also inducted Sunday for writing and acting in the 'Rocky' movies
"There is special reverence for me," Stallone said. "They are the greatest athletes in the world. They are our connection to the past and our way to the future. They are the guys that go in there and take the blows and show that if you really put it out there on the line, you are a champion. You may not be the champion of the world, but you'll be the champion of your life."
