Light welterweight TaTina “ Lil Tyson “ Anderson was born on July 10, 1985 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  She is 5 foot tall with a very chiseled physique. She is a single mom raising her seven-year-old daughter Nisia. She has five sisters and four brothers and a family that includes Tina’s parent’s Tina and Earl and many loving aunts and uncles who totally support her in boxing.

Sports are Tina‘s life. At the tender age of five she ran track under the supervision of Coach Tony Stephens. She participated in the Junior Olympics for fours years consecutively and received many awards in School for track and basketball, including the inner city games. Tina also played Football with the Las Vegas Showgirls as a running back and full back. If it was competitive Tina was there participating.

Tina is a very dedicated athlete who goes to the gym religiously, Maria Lomax, a world class bodybuilder and nutritionist, took Tina under her wing and helps her with her diet and weight training conducive to boxing. Tina trains in boxing at LA Boxing for several hours then drives to Gold's Gym to train with Maria, Tina feels an athlete must train out of their comfort zone and always challenge themselves, saying “I train hard but there is always another fighter training even harder, so I have to be at my best always . I box because I love the sport and the discipline, I get a rush from it, I am free when I am in that ring and I am the one that is in control."

Tina trained with former pro boxing heavyweight Leroy Caldwell, Leroy boxing career extended from 1969 to 1985. Tina’s grandfather introduced her to Leroy and asked him if he would train her . Tina trained for three years with Leroy at the famous Johnny Tocco's Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada, where many world champions trained, like Vic Darchinyan, Michael Grant, Hasim Rahman and Jermain Taylor. Mike Tyson would stop by the gym frequently to watch sparring and just hang out and talk to the fighters.

Tina was never in the amateurs, she went right to the pros in 2008. 

She made her pro debut at 147 lbs on August 30, 2008 at Davis County Convention Center in Layton, Utah against debuter Sara Wells (141 lbs) of Las Vegas, winning by a TKO at 1:50 in the second round of a scheduled four.  

On July 17, 2009 at the Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, California, TaTina (143 lbs) won by a fourth-round TKO over debuter Mariama Everett (143 lbs) of  California.

On August 21, 2009 at the Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, California, TaTina (142 lbs) knocked out Tammy Franks (143 lbs) of San Antonio, Texas at 0:51 in the second round of a scheduled four-rounder. Franks fell to 2-9-1 (0 KO's) with the loss. 

On April 4, 2010 at the Convention Center in Tucson, Arizona, Ku'ulei Kupihea (145 lbs) of Honolulu, Hawaii won a four-round unanimous (40-36,39-37,39-37) decision over Tina (145 lbs).  Kupihea had extensive amateur experience and was a southpaw but Tina did not have this information going into the fight.  Kupihea started fighting on the inside until she caught a hard stinging body shot, after that Kupihea kept her distance and boxed. Tina expressed that she would love a rematch because the next time she would be ready for a southpaw!  Kupihea improved to 5-1 with the victory.

After that fight Tina decided she needed a management team that would find her fights and give her more media exposure. She wanted to concentrate on training 100% and not worry about finding fights. After discussing it with Leroy she had to make a break and changed gyms and found a new trainer because of their differences.

She thought it would be better to start with a new trainer, someone that will reevaluate and take her to the next level. At the advice of her new manager she was directed to Rodney Crisler at L.A. Boxing in Henderson, Nevada. She and Rodney hit it off immediately, and she felt very comfortable with Rodney.  She was able to communicate with him and learn many new boxing techniques. She and Rodney have a very close fighter / trainer relationship, many things are left unsaid as they just both know what is expected. 

In 2010,  Tina signed with Butch Gottlieb of Infinity Boxing LLC.

Mike Tyson watched Tina spar many times at Toccos Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada, and he loved Tina because she would emulate his style of boxing. She said I am a short fighter like Mike, so “If Mike can do it, I can do it. I will be a force to be reckoned with!”  Mike would have a big smile when he talked to Tina, he gave her instructions how to throw punches effectively and he gave Tina her ring name “Lil Tyson” because of her Tyson-like style. She has the discipline, heart and dedication to proceed in her boxing career. She lives, eats and sleeps boxing. Tina said that is a good outlet for anyone, women or man, it’s a good way to keep them off the streets away from a bad environment, it gives a person a sense of something different in life, positive surroundings and a feeling of acceptance.

The fans were on their feet cheering for the fighters as they fought on the inside without any break for the entire four rounds.  Both fought so well it ended as a majority draw (39-37 Anderson,38-38,38-38).  Medel moved her record to 4-1-1 (0 KO's).

On May 19, 2011 at a private boxing show at the exclusive Lakeside Golf Club in Burbank, California, Tina (139 lbs) went four rounds with Miriam Nakamoto (138 lbs) of Los Angeles.  They fought in the presence of "Rocky" himself - Sylvester Stallone - who was at ringside cheering the fighters on. Tina won a split (40-38,39-37,37-39) decision, dropping Nakamoto's record to 2-3 (1 KO).

Tina was featured in September 2011’s issue of Ring Magazine, in the women‘s section.

On November 20, 2011 Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Tina (136 lbs) TKO'd several-time world title contestant Victoria Cisneros (132 lbs) of Albuquerque, New Mexico at 1:02 in the third round of a scheduled four-rounder. WBAN's Sue TL Fox stated that this was "an action packed fight from beginning until the end".  Cisneros fell to 5-13-2 (1 KO) with the loss.

WBAN named Tina its "Best Kept Secret" of 2011 for her performance during the year.

Tina has a full schedule taking care of her daughter, going to college full time studying to earn a degree in Nutrition Science, Kinesiology and Physiology, and training.  She tries to spend as much time with her daughter and her very close knit family who all support each other. An entire section at her fights is taken up by Tina’s family and church members. In her spare time she works on cars with her Bishop who is also her Uncle. She also likes watching movies and just being with her family.  Tina’s mother tells her “Keep God first and everything else will fall in place.” 

Tina has the discipline, heart and dedication to proceed in her boxing career. She lives, eats and sleeps boxing and loves the all-time favorites like Mike Tyson, Roberto Duran. Sugar Ray Leonard , Tommy Hearns, Lucia Rijker, Christy Martin, Ann Wolfe and Laila Ali.  She says that boxing is a good outlet for anyone, women or man, a good way to keep them off the streets away from a bad environment, it gives a person a sense of something different in life, positive surroundings, and a feeling of acceptance.
