Here is “Iron” Mike Tyson at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend. A documentary on his life is featured at the festival:
“I lived a wild and extreme life,” the former heavyweight champion
told reporters Saturday. “I used drugs. I had altercations with dangerous people. I slept with guys’ wives that wanted to kill me. I’m just happy to be here, you know. It’s just a miracle.”
Tyson spares no details in describing his sex life, and covers his career’s low points, like biting Evander Holyfield’s ear in 1997. He admits to many, many bad decisions. But on one issue, he still refuses to take responsibility. He insists he is innocent of the 1991 rape of an 18-year-old beauty queen for which he served three years in prison.
“I’ve been abusive to women before in my life,” he acknowledged. But in this case, “I thought (the conviction) was wrong, I thought it was unfair.”
That should be an interesting tale. We all know Mike got major issues.
