A statue of Mike Tyson has left fans bewildered after for appearing to show little resemblance to the youngest heavyweight world champion of all time.

Resorts World unveiled a 10ft high bronze statue of 'Iron' Mike Tyson in Las Vegas on the weekend, but fans couldn't help but compare it to the infamous Cristiano Ronaldo statue debacle.

Standing in front of the monster statue, Tyson appeared happy with the gesture.

Statue Tyson showcased him with his gloves on and his signature face tattoo.

However, many fans thought that was as close as it came to resembling the boxer who won his first world title at just 20 years old in 1986.

Many fans said it would be unrecognisable if it wasn't for the face tattoo.

Not long after the statue reveal, it was reported Tyson would be fighting YouTuber Logan Paul in an up-coming bout in 2022.

Paul is coming off a fight with legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather, while Tyson fought boxing icon Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout earlier this year.
