Description:
Emmanuel B. Aghassian, anglicized as Emmanuel "Mike" Agassi (born 25 December 1930 in Salmas, Iran), is a former boxer and the father of Andre Agassi.

Born to Armenian and Assyrian parents, Agassi was first exposed to tennis by American and British servicemen. He represented Iran as a boxer in the 1948 and 1952 Summer Olympics, losing in the first round both times.

After he emigrated to the United States in the mid-1950s, he changed his name to Mike Agassi. He met and married Elizabeth Dudley while living in Chicago, Illinois. They moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, and had four children, the first three of whom Agassi has described as "guinea pigs" in the development of the methods he used to mold Andre into a world-class player. His book The Agassi Story was published in 2004.
