Kenny Simmons is one tough son of a bitch, and that's exactly why Mike Tyson asked him to be his bodyguard. He first met Tyson training at Gleason's gym in NYC back in the 80's. After that, Kenny went on to do protection for a bunch of celebrities including Madonna, Christopher Walken and Sam Kinison. Before he started fighting he was a Marine and fought in Vietnam.
Kenny is also a survivor of 9/11 and a first responder by virtue of being there and wanting to help as the dust settled. He has never before seen footage of the tragedy as it unfolded and is releasing a film The Rise: America's Unsung Heroes on Nat Geo, to honor the memory of the victims and their families.
