Mike Tyson, during an interview on HBO’s Real Sports spoke about his highs and lows of his life and had some interesting things to say. From what he can remember of course.
“I remember my drug days better than I remember my fighting days. I have to talk to people that were there, because I don’t remember too much about my boxing days. Either I don’t want to remember them, probably, that’s probably part of it. Some of them– like, even the good times were really not good. You know. Even the fun times weren’t really fun. You know, they just appeared to be fun.”
So let me get this straight he remembers the part of him rotting his brain with drugs but not the part when he was taking blows to the head?
Tyson also referred to how he is currently living and why he is at peace with his life now.
“This is the best time of my life, ever. This is so interesting about my life, that I realize now. It’s because at this stage in my life, with so little, I did so much. And at that stage of my life I had so much, I couldn’t even do a little.”
Tyson is referring to his current stage of life now being a devoted Muslim and transforming his life. Tyson was bankrupt and had all but hit rock bottom a few years back before he turned to his new religion.
I do miss the old Mike Tyson though![youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQvet1iUkYY[/youtube]
