The man, considered one of the greatest heavyweights of all time, was found guilty of raping then 18-year-old model Desiree Washington in 1992. He then spent three years behind bars.

Thirty years later, a woman who insisted on remaining anonymous in the trial over fears of being attacked “by the media and all of Mike Tyson’s fans” filed a “rape” lawsuit in a civil court in Albany in early January county a. She is demanding $5 million in damages.

The process is made possible by a New York state law that went into effect at the end of November, which allows victims of sexual assault to file a civil suit for a year without a statute of limitations.

In a brief statement dated December 23, 2022, accompanying the proceedings, the applicant alleges that she met the boxer “in the early 1990s” at a nightclub and then followed him in his limousine, where he allegedly assaulted her before raping her.

She reports on physical and, above all, psychological after-effects that have been following her for years.

Mike Tyson had not responded Tuesday night.

Born in Brooklyn in 1966, Mike Tyson spent his childhood and youth as a petty criminal before becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion in the 1980s, terrorizing his opponents with his in-ring fury and phenomenal punching power.

But after jail, Mike Tyson will not be able to keep his titles, most notably in 1996 he was beaten by Evander Holyfield in a memorable match in which he bit his opponent’s ears until they bled. In the grip of depression and addiction, he continued to get people talking about him, most notably starring in a one-man show where he shares his ups and downs.

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