In his day, Mike Tyson was a savage boxer and the most ruthless and vicious athlete in existence. To this day, there has been nothing like Tyson in any sport.
Today, if you follow Mike, he’s a laid back guy who uses his life experiences to connect with athletes and give advice so they don’t make the mistakes he did. A month ago, we caught a glimpse of the old Mike when he was harassed by a drunk passenger on a JetBlue flight. In the video, you can see that Mike is trying to take care of his business, but the passenger kept nagging Mike to hand him a two-piece suit and a soda. The San Mateo County District Attorney has since decided not to charge Mike, but now Mike is finally opening up about the situation on his podcast. Hot boxing with Mike Tyson.
