Mike Tyson admits to ‘sick past” of drinking, gorging on food and f***ing women
Mike Tyson had admitted he was 'sick' in his younger years as his boxing talent propelled him to worldwide stardom.
The American became the youngest ever world heavyweight champion at the age of 20 after beating Trevor Berbick in 1986.
But as he sat atop of the boxing world, Tyson found himself struggling to cope with the money and fame that came with the job.
And now speaking candidly, the 53-year-old admits he was sick and needed help back in the day.
"When I was young I was an animal with money," Tyson said on his Youtube show, Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson.
"Giving people money like f*** everybody, party with everybody and f*** their mothers, their sisters and their cousins… orgies. I was crazy.
"I was so sick and I had no idea I was so sick.
"I bought a lot of cars for girls too."
Tyson also spoke candidly about his life earlier this month in a conversation with fellow boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard.
The power-puncher admitted he was 'scared' of the man he used to be.
“I’m a f***ing student of war,” Tyson said.
“I know all the warriors. From Charlemagne to Achilles – the number one warrior of all warriors – and then Alexander and Napoleon, I know them all.

“I read about them all. I studied them all. I know the art of fighting, I know the art of war, that’s all I ever studied.
“That’s why I’m so feared, that’s why they feared me when I was in the ring. I was an annihilator. It’s all I was born for.
“Now those days are gone it’s empty, I’m nothing. I’m working on the art of humbleness…
"That’s the reason I’m crying because I’m not that person no more, and I miss him.
“Because sometimes I feel like a b****, because I don’t want that person to come out because if he comes out, hell is coming with him.
“And it’s not funny at all. I sound cool, like I’m a tough guy [but] I hate that guy. I’m scared of him."
