Michael Gerard "Mike" Tyson (also known as Malik Abdul Aziz) (born June 30, 1966) is a retired American professional boxer. Tyson is a former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles at 20 years, 4 months, and 22 days old. Tyson won his first 19 professional bouts by knockout, 12 of them in the first round. He won the WBC title in 1986 after defeating Trevor Berbick by a TKO in the second round. In 1987, Tyson added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker. He was the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles, and the only heavyweight to successively unify them.

From Entertainment Weekly:
The B-plotline of this half hour had to do with Robin’s Marvin-phobia. Early in the episode, we learned that Robin had somehow managed to avoid holding Marvin all these months, and she was happy to continue doing so. That plan came crashing down, however, after Lily left Marvin in her care so that Lily could chase down a bus on which they’d left Marvin’s favorite pacifier. When Marvin started crying, Robin ended up relying heavily on the kindness of an old woman to help her care for Marvin. At least, that’s what she led Lily to believe. Almost two decades down the line, after revealing pieces of the story to Lily throughout the years, Robin finally confessed that it had not been a kind old lady who helped her care for Marvin that day. It was Mike Tyson. (Or, as Lily called him in the flashforward, “Sen. Mike Tyson.”) Only you, HIMYM. Only you.
