Mike Tyson Admits that Women, Drinking and Extravagant Eating Ruined his Boxing Career.
Mike Tyson remembers how his rough lifestyle ruined his career.
Tyson confessed to being sick with drinking, womanizing and extravagant eating.
At the age of 20, Mike became the youngest heavyweight champion after defeating Trevor Berbick in 1986.
He held the title for years until he was beaten by James Douglas which was caused by his rough lifestyle.
Tyson acknowledged that he was sick and needed help back in the days when things were still rosy for him.
He said in his statement:
“When I was young I was an animal with money,” Tyson said on his Youtube show, Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson.
“Giving people money like f*** everybody, party with everybody and f*** their mothers, their sisters and their cousins… org***. I was crazy.
“I was so sick and I had no idea I was so sick. “I bought a lot of cars for girls too.
” Tyson also revealed that he was scared about the man he used to be with legendary boxer Sugar Ray Loenard
“I’m a f***ing student of war,” Tyson said. “I know all the warriors. From Charlemagne to Achilles – the number one warrior of all warriors – and then Alexander and Napoleon, I know them all. “I read about them all. I studied them all. I know the art of fighting, I know the art of war, that’s all I ever studied.
“That’s why I’m so feared, that’s why they feared me when I was in the ring. I was an annihilator. It’s all I was born for.
“Now those days are gone it’s empty, I’m nothing. I’m working on the art of humbleness…
“That’s the reason I’m crying because I’m not that person no more, and I miss him. “Because sometimes I feel like a b****, because I don’t want that person to come out because if he comes out, hell is coming with him.
“And it’s not funny at all. I sound cool, like I’m a tough guy [but] I hate that guy. I’m scared of him.
Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in 1985 when he defeated Trevor Berbick through a knockout and had a great moment in his career.
