Mike Tyson is one vicious boxer whose prowess also extended to the bottle, and now he’s on the ‘verge of dying’ because of his alcohol drinking skills.
Tyson made the startling revelation during a press conference on Friday, telling reporters, ‘I’m on the verge of dying, because I’m a vicious alcoholic.’
Mike says he decided to come clean because he wants to be forgiven by those he has wronged, and also because he does not want to die. ‘I’m a bad guy sometimes,’ he declared. ‘I did a lot of bad things, and I want to be forgiven.’
He continued, ‘So in order for me to be forgiven, I hope they can forgive me. I wanna change my life, I wanna live a different life now. I wanna live my sober life. I don’t wanna die. I’m on the verge of dying, because I’m a vicious alcoholic.’
The heavyweight boxing champ also revealed that he’s been sober for six days. In his own words, ‘I haven’t drank or took drugs in six days, and for me that’s a miracle. I’ve been lying to everybody else that think I was sober, but I’m not. This is my sixth day. I’m never gonna use again.’
