“Iron Mike Tyson” has always been a specific athlete who, due to the conditions in which he grew up, had troubled moments and decisions in life. He recently stunned the public by saying he was feeling empty and now gave an even more controversial interview for The Sportsman.
The World boxing legend, many people will say the best boxer of all time, stressed that fame is an extremely bad thing.
I don’t think anything new and important could happen in my life than what I’ve already described in my autobiography. But you never know. The more we learn about ourselves, the more we learn about life. Life is pretty interesting. We are born and die, not knowing where we came from. And life prepares us for death. We still don’t know anything about it, but when we come to certain years we are no longer afraid of death as much as we were afraid when we were young.
This is how Tyson began his story and explained that he was aware of the dangers of the sport he pursued throughout his career.
I knew there was a possibility that I could die during training, during a fight. I knew that. But I wasn’t scared. thought if anybody was going to die, I would do the killing. That self-confidence was in fact a mechanism for survival. But now from my experience, from what I believe in, I’m all set to die.
Tyson then simplified his last sentence:
Yeah. I don’t fear it. Living might be more complicated than dying to me. The belief of it. I don’t know if it’s true. Because living takes a lot of courage. Without the 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 fu*k? We’re nothing! We come from sh*t; we think we’re special! Fame is sh*t.
Everybody says you’re special, and then you discover you’re not. I don’t expect bad things to happen to me, but when they do, I know I can control that. I know there are going to be heartbreaks. I will continue to strive for something, I will not be discouraged.
The legendary boxer also said that he lives a family life and occasionally meets his former rivals Lennox Lewis and Evander Holliday.
“We hug each other, talk a little and everyone goes their own way. I am constantly with my wife, that world is no longer my world. Now I’m a family man. “
Mike Tyson has finally stated that he wants to do one thing before his death:
Boxing is an enigma and in 200 years from now people will probably remember some of the five best fighters in history. We all want to be like Achilles in our heads. Let’s be king of all fighters. Like him, we all have our weaknesses. In fact, one of the things I have to do before dying is to visit Achilles’ tomb in Greece, Tyson said.
