He’s getting soft in his old age
Love him or hate him, one thing is true: Mike Tyson is unique and attracting attention. There’s some bitter humor in the fact that he had to get in all kind of trouble to undergo a crucial change and become someone bigger than just a scary, brutal, almost insane killing machine. The guy who, according to his own words, was busy acquiring riches, then lost almost everything. The “used-to-be” Tyson was the founder and the follower of his own personality cult. Today Tyson is a forty-plus year old man whose significant trait is self-irony. And self-irony often makes a good comedian.
“I can quit boxing now and practically go into any kind of business and I’ll be successful just as well as I was in boxing”, Mike Tyson once said. Check this video and a huge number of others on Youtube – you’ll see Mike doesn’t lie.
