The 50 Craziest Sex Scandals in Sports History

6. Mike Tyson Convicted of Rape

Sports figure(s) involved: Mike Tyson
Year: 1992

Mike Tyson has an absolutely deplorable criminal history that America's been seemingly willing to overlook. Before The Hangover cameos and one-man shows, Iron Mike was famous for biting a grown man's ear off during a boxing match and doing three years in the clink for rape. In 1991, Tyson was convicted of raping an 18-year-old beauty queen and sentenced to six years in prison. Tyson's always denied any wrongdoing, but said of the accuser in a 2006 interview, "I just hate her guts. She put me in that state, where I don't know, I really wish I did now. Now I really do want to rape her." Draw your own conclusions.
