For a while there the public was made to think Mike Tyson has somewhat turned his life around. Of course, turning your life around from being Mike Tyson isn’t the average, everyday chore. However, Mike seemed to be making strides to getting his life in order. Apparently the public was fooled. In an interview where Tyson was discussing his return to boxing as a promoter for Iron Mike Productions, Tyson admitted he’s been drinking and abusing drugs pretty heavily.
According to The Huffington Post, last week Tyson admitted he’s been sober for a mere six days. He said he’s been drinking heavily and using drugs regularly. He said the fact he’s been sober for six days is a miracle. He also admitted he’s “on the verge of dying because he’s an alcoholic”.
Tyson also included in his interview he’s looking to make amends with former trainer Teddy Atlas. It appears as if Mike had a serious come-to-Jesus because he seems very determined to straighten his life out. You can see the interview by clicking the link to the Post above. Mike has always been a troubled guy. We wonder if he’ll be able to finally straighten his life around before it’s too late.
