They are very, very, very difficult to leave alone once they become a part of your life. Wish everyone in this situation the best.

I feel like he is a man who has a really good heart deep down, but has a dark labyrinth of demons that he finds himself fighting with. I don’t always feel like I understand what prayer is, but Mike, you are in mine. In a certain sense, I feel a very strong sense of looking up to him for going through such a real and personal transformation. And I feel privileged to have the opportunity to witness it.

We will see who wins but you can bet any decent person will be betting on good mike. We all struggle with the back and forth to certain degrees. None of us got taught everything when we were growing up. Its up to us to learn all that. We can’t sit here and blame our parents or whatever else about how things are. We are adults now,we need to take responsibility for ourselves and get better,fix the things we need to fix. Have strength.

I grew up watching him fight, i watched him lose his mentor, i watched him go through the robin givins thing, watched don king destroy him, watched him lose the belt, the rape charges, the loss of exodus, the ridicule from media, the rebirth…everything. this dudes been through some shit. Hell, writing this almost makes me tear up. I usually dont give a crap about a celeb, but im truly a fan of mike tyson the person. WAR IRON MIKE!!! Log in to Reply wcoastassassin August 26, 2013 It was obvious in more recent videos, he sounds much more intelligent here. Mike is not a stupid guy, he is actual very intellectual I just hope he can defeat his demons before it is too late. He looks pretty good for a vehement alcoholic Log in to Reply shocktime August 26, 2013 Good Luck Mike. Just fight those demons like you did your foes in the ring, and you will be victorious. Log in to Reply chamberfool August 26, 2013 Mike is one of the most interesting human beings. He has such a checkered past, he’s like a beast and a philosopher at the same time. You can tell that he has a brilliant mind that is assaulted by his own self destructive tendency. His heart is absolutely pure. But his mind is filled with ghosts and weakness. His life is one that someone could dissect to show how wide the spectrum is being a human being. I am fascinated by him and I root for him to overcome, always. Log in to Reply YoGonGetGot August 26, 2013 At least he’s honest. I’d love to party with Mike Tyson, but i’d keep my ears away from him. Log in to Reply dankarelli August 26, 2013 I have grown to love mike tyson, his candor, his constant attempts at self-improvement and his unrelenting and unwavering introspection in the light of his troubled past. This guy has gone from what I once thought was a savage animal with no redeeming qualities to a man I can look up to. On so many levels this guy has become an inspiration to me. Log in to Reply drewblood August 26, 2013 Look at you scared now, you hoe. Scared like a little white pusssy. Scared of the real man. I’ll fuk you ’til you love me, faggot. Log in to Reply Damn August 26, 2013 He’s done some sick, disgusting things that may be unforgivable, but this is a dead honest person. Very real, and one of the most interesting public figures I’ve ever watched. I wish Tyson well. I respect him in a weird way. Log in to Reply the pope August 26, 2013 i wish him the best. for his fam and himself . hope he cleans up for good and would be cool for teddy to accept his apology. takes me back to his old fight days . him teddy n cus were unstoppable. Log in to Reply CMOS August 26, 2013 Good for u mike Log in to Reply steamer August 30, 2013 We live in a society in which someone points a finger and everyone turns and gasps pretending to be horrified, hoping that no one will suspect what they themselves are hiding. Mike is so brave to say the things he says, but it’s not necessary for him to feel the way he does about himself. He is flawed and human, just like the rest of us.
