The great Mike Tyson has revealed a lot, in the most recent interview, how his life has become very complicated.
since retiring from the sport, he has been feeling like a shell of a man.
he once was the biggest puncher on the planet and became world champion at 20 years old.
in 1990 he was beaten by James Buster Douglas which resulted in the biggest upsets in boxing history.
Mike Tyson also faced rape charges and send to prison for two years which was a very depressing moment. Once he came back in the ring in 1995 he felt quite the same.
He said in a recent interview.
‘From my experience, from what I believe, the more I know about not existing, the more willing I am to die.
‘Yeah [I look forward to it], I don’t fear it. Living might be more complicated than dying to me… because living takes a lot of courage.
‘Without courage, you can’t handle living. Living is a journey; living is a struggle. People have everything and they still can’t do it, they struggle.
‘We take ourselves too seriously; we think we’re somebody. Who the f, we’re nothing! We come from s; we think we’re special [but] fame is s***.
‘You find out you’re not [special]. You’re capable of going to jail, you’re capable of dying, you’re capable of being mistreated.
‘I don’t expect bad things to happen to me, but when they do happen to me, I understand it and I’m able to handle it. I’ve handled bad stuff before, that’s been my life. I don’t trip over bad things, I know s*** happens. When bad things happen, I will be still striving to do something. I won’t be discouraged.’
