GRINNING Mike Tyson was ringside to watch Canelo Alvarez's shock defeat to Dmitry Bivol in Las Vegas.

The legendary heavyweight took in the action alongside his wife Lakiha Spicer.


Tyson, 55, appeared in a joyful mood and the happy couple were all smiles as he put his arm around Lakiha.

They were filmed making their walk into the T-Mobile Arena hand in hand to take their seats before the blockbuster fight of the night.

Iron Mike married third wife Kiki in 2009 after she went into prison while pregnant with their first child together, daughter Milan – son Morocco followed three years later.

But they were in for a surprise last night as Canelo, stepping up to light heavyweight, lost on a unanimous points decision against the Russian.

Alvarez was widely tipped to claim the WBA light-heavyweight world title.

But from the off, Bilov's jab was a huge problem for Canelo who could not get in range to land his power punches.

Frustration grew through the contest, as Bilov picked off Alvarez with fast countering and superb movement.

And it became apparent in the closing stages that Alvarez needed a knockout – but looked completely gassed as he failed to land a killer punch and was even booed by some sections of the crowd.

All three judges scored the bout 115-113 in favour of the Russian and Canelo had "no excuses".

The 31-year-old said: "I lost, he won.
