The "baddest man on the planet" lost his fight against getting vaccinated.

Boxing icon Mike Tyson, 55, received the coronavirus vaccination but not willingly. He cited the necessity to travel frequently.

"I didn't do it willingly," Tyson said Tuesday. "I'm a little apprehensive of that. I was pretty much beaten into submission to do this because I travel internationally. And if I don’t travel, we don't eat."

He likely had coronavirus at some point over the pandemic but feels "great now," he said.
