That's funny,because I'd never heard of him until Space Jam.
Tyson's fame has outgrown boxing and sports.
Jordan is a well know athlete,Tyson is a well known personality

I can only speak for where I live. But in Britain, it's Mike Tyson without a doubt. Michael Jordan isn't a household name here.

Jordan is probably known in some places just for the clothing and sneakers...Tyson hasn't been BIG since he fought Lewis outside of appearances IMO

Lol comparing Mayweather to Tyson that is absurd! Im not saying Michael Jordan isn't known worldwide but Tyson is defiantly more of a household name due to his badass personality. Only Yanks would think Michael Jordan is more worldwide then Tyson but i really cant be assed to debate since you never leave your country so y'all will never understand...

In Canada, MJ was gigantic. He was everywhere. You could not watch an evening of TV without him mugging the camera multiple times. Like someone else said he was a franchise that exists mainly in North America
Tyson was also huge, not quite as gigantic, but his name was still all over the place. He was also always in the news. He was also huge in Europe.
It is a tough call. MJ was as big as a sports celebrity could possibly get in North America to the point of over-saturation. Tyson was big worldwide.
