‘I’m not that person no more’ Tyson said, “I know all the warr*ors From Charlemagne to Achilles – the number one warr*or of all warr!ors – and then Alexander and Napoleon, I know them all. I read about them all. I know the art of fighting, I know the art of war. That’s all I’ve ever studied. That’s why I’m so f*ared, that’s why they f*ared me when I was in the ring. I was an annihilator, that’s all I was born for. Now those days are gone, it’s empty, I’m nothing”.
“I’m working on being the art of humblen-ess. That’s the reason I’m crying, cause I’m not that person no more, and I miss him. That guy’s kind of d*ad now… but that wasn’t easy. That guy didn’t want to leave. He wasn’t leaving easy. He fought, scr*amed and cr!ed and scratched all the way until he d*ed, you know?” Mike Tyson, to date, remains the youngest f!ghter to ever win a world heavyweight title. Back in 1986, Tyson had b*aten Trevor Berbick. 15-years-on, Tyson is still battling his mental demons as he struggles to come to terms with the fact that he will never compete in the ring again.
While explaining why the discussion had left in tears, the 53-year-old said, “Because sometimes I feel like a b***h, 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 scar*d of him”.
