Mike Tyson‘s life and career are unparalleled. His rise to the top of the boxing world at just 20-years of age was incredible, but it all came unraveled just a few years later. Tyson went to prison in 1992 on rape charges and he would never be the same in the ring upon his return. So as you could imagine, the man has quite a story to tell. After a long wait, his autobiography ‘Undisputed’ is set to hit stores on November 16th.
So as per usual, a few excerpts from the book have been released to entice people to buy. Here’s a couple of the crazy lines you can find in Tyson’s book:
“Sometimes I just fantasize about blowing somebody’s brains out so I can go to prison for the rest of my life.”
“I was having so much sex that I was too tired to even go to the gym and work out.”
“When I think about all the horrific things that Don has done to me over the years I still feel like killing him.”
To give some context to those lines, the first one deals with the constant battles in Tyson’s mind. He’s made no bones about his dark side and the line about shooting someone in the head, really drives the point home.
The second line is actually about his time in prison. Tyson claims he was having tons of sex with visitors and counselors.
The final line is about none other than promoter Don King. Promoters don’t have the greatest reputations and obviously Tyson hates King’s guts.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to read Undisputed.
