Mike Tyson reveals he would cry before every fight because he was 'getting ready to change into somebody I don't like'

MIKE TYSON has revealed he ALWAYS CRIED before he entered the ring during the height of his fame.

The Baddest Man On The Planet was one of the most-feared boxers to ever pull on the gloves.

But the seemingly terrifying Iron Mike has admitted he was brought to tears before almost every fight.

And it was all due to him knowing it was because he was about to turn into somebody he did not like.

Speaking on his HotBoxin Podcast, Tyson said: “I always cry before I fight, it’s just who I am.

“I’m getting ready to change into somebody I don’t like.”

Speaking about his former self during his heyday, the former world champion said: “He brought more than just fighting with him.

“He brought like, jealousy, envious, guilt, he brought a lot of stuff.”

The 54-year-old has reportedly rejected a £14million offer to fight Wanderlei Silva in a Bare Knuckle Boxing match.

A rematch against Evander Holyfield looks more likely as talks are reportedly underway while Riddick Bowe has also challenged him.

Tyson will take on a great white SHARK in an incredible man vs beast challenge.

He will feature on the annual summer TV programme Shark Week.

And AEW star Chris Jericho wants to take him on inside the wrestling ring.

But whoever does get the chance to face him, Tyson insists it will not be the same version of himself from his glory years.

He added: “No one ever put that together, that’s who I was, everything that was bad was that guy.

“Everything I remember from my past, my mother, my family, was that guy.

“He had a tough time cutting off, he’s my ego, he doesn’t want to go.”

Buthe warned: “He’s more under control by far. He always sneaks up every now and then.”
