Tyrone Booze (born February 12, 1959) is a former boxer who held the World Boxing Organization cruiserweight world championship.

Booze became a professional boxer in 1982 and had mixed success during his early career. He had early losses in the 1980s to Evander Holyfield, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, Johnny DuPlooy, Bert Cooper, Dwigh Braxton (to be known as Dwight Muhammad Qawi), and Henry Tillman. In 1990 he lost to Nate Miller for the North American Boxing Federation cruiserweight title and lost by a unanimous decision. After winning one fight he then challenged Magne Havnaa in 1991 for the WBO cruiserweight belt. He lost a twelve-round split decision. When Havnaa relinquished his title, Booze knocked out Derek Angol on July 25, 1992, and won the WBO title. He defended the belt once, against Ralf Rocchigiani. On February 13, 1993, Markus Bott defeated Booze by a unanimous decision to take the title.

Booze did not fight for a title again and retired in 1998 after losing to Jesse Ferguson.

On September 19, 2011, Tyrone Booze and Super Bowl XXXVII MVP Dexter Jackson began a new radio show called "All Sports" with Randy Harris on Clearwater, Florida's WTAN AM 1340.[1] The show is also aired on WDCF, WZHR and online on the Talking Sports Network.[2]
