Mike Tyson Candid About Past, Future, Calls Himself ‘a Pig’
Filed under: Action Sports
Mike Tyson is 44 year old, 20 years removed from Buster Douglas knocking him out in Tokyo, and the downward spiral that followed, including prison time on a rape conviction and quitting mid-fight against journeyman Kevin McBride during a 2005 match before promptly announcing that he didn’t have “the fighting guts or the heart anymore.”
Whenever Tyson has spoken publicly about his life, he’s been forthcoming about his mistakes. He ratchets the self-loathing up a few notches in a recent interview with Details, telling the magazine that, “The first stage of my life was just a whole bunch of selfishness. Just a whole bunch of gifts to myself and people who didn’t necessarily deserve it. Now I’m 44, and I realize that my whole life is just a f–king waste. ‘Greatest man on the planet’? I wasn’t half the man I thought I was. So if there’s a big plan now, it’s just to give-it’s selflessness, caring for the people who deserve it. Because I think I’m a pig. I have this uncanny ability to look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘This is a pig. You are a f–king piece of sh-t.’”
