Mike Tyson is most definitely one of the most legendary professional boxers in the history of the sport. Triller’s latest event featured Evander Holyfield squaring off against Vitor Belfort and getting knocked out in over a minute within the first round. Due to the match’s reception, new regulations will be imposed and that includes banning exhibition matches. Due to this, Mike Tyson and Holyfield may be banned from Triller. Mike Tyson also previously revealed a racist remark by Jake Paul.
Mike Tyson recently was involved in an incident, where he punched a passenger named Melvin Townsend, who was bloodied after Tyson hit him in the head many times. This was due to Mike Tyson harassing him and agitating him for a long time.
He returned to action against Roy Jones Jr. in November 2020, ending a hiatus of over 15 years away from the sport. At the start of the first episode of HotBoxin’ with Mike Tyson on January 15, 2019, he recalled how psychedelics helped him out.
“I died during my first trip. In my trips, I’ve seen that death is beautiful. Life and death both have to be beautiful.
Before I did the toad, I was a wreck… I had low self-esteem. People with big egos often have low self-esteem. We use our ego to subsidize that. The toad strips the ego. It has made me more creative and helps me focus.
“And trying to find your life’s purpose—that’s what we’re all here for…No one’s trying to show that we’re smarter than anyone else. We’re just trying to learn together.
I’ve never been the same. It lasts forever, but it only took 15 minutes…When you think you know everything, and then you realise you don’t know anything, then it is a big awakening…You can call it growth or divine intervention.”
