Tyson on Real Sports: 'I'll never be wealthy again'
Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson discusses the accidental death of his 4-year-old daughter, his financial troubles and his one-man show, among other things, during his upcoming profile on HBO's Real Sports, which debuts on March 19.
On Tuesday, March 19 at 10 p.m., former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson will be the subject of "The Transformation of Tyson" in an interview with Bernard Goldberg which will debut on HBO's Real Sports.
In the video, one of the more compelling moments deals with the death in May of 2009 of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus, who was strangled after having become entangled in the cable of a treadmill at the home of her mother, Sol Xochitl.
"One time, I tried to direct him to turn around and look at the picture [of his daughter] and he wouldn't. So I didn't think he could hear me," said Ki Ki Tyson, the former boxer's current wife, according to the report.
Once dubbed "the baddest man on the planet" and the youngest man, at the age of 20 years, four months and 22 days old, to become heavyweight champion, Tyson reportedly earned more than $300 million in purses, much of which has been squandered.
Tyson blew all of the money and went bankrupt, now owing much of it to the internal revenue service.
But following memorable roles in Hollywood films, including the Hangover franchise, the 46-year-old who retired with a record of 50-6 (44 knockouts) has reinvented himself.
"Do you want to entertain people because you want acceptance from the people," asked Goldberg. "you want them to like you?"
