Mike Tyson, a former undisputed heavyweight champion who quit boxing 15 years ago says he feels empty without the sports that gave him so much fame.
Tyson(53) who broke down in tears as he spoke about his mental health struggles had won several titles during his 20-year career journey as a professional boxer..
Speaking during the latest episode of his podcast Hotboxin, said, “I’m a student of war. 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. I’m nothing. I’m working on the art of humbleness. That’s the reason I’m crying, I’m not that person no more, and I miss him.”
Admitting that he now feels “empty” like he’s “nothing” because he’s no longer the most feared fighter in the world, Tyson added that discussions like these leave him in tears.
“Sometimes I feel like a b***h. I sound cool like I’m a tough guy. But I hate that guy. I’m scared of him. I don’t want that person to come out because if he does, hell is coming with him,” he added.
