  • Mike Tyson admitted he constantly blew money on lawsuits after ‘getting caught up in a vortex of destroying’ during his newfound fame during his initial rise in boxing.

Tyson won his first world championship at 20, less than two years into his professional career.

And he did so in dazzling fashion, winning 26 of his first 28 professional fights via knockout.

During his rise from zero to hero, which he detailed on GOOD TROUBLE with professional tennis player Nick Kyrgios, Tyson’s my mother and brother died.

In addition random people would come up to him asking for pictures and saying they loved him, or to give them stuff. Sometimes, Tyson would not be in the mood and would get violent about it. Then the lawsuits started coming in.

Kyrgios and Tyson discussed several different topics related to boxing and their personal lives


‘I was always being sued,’ Tyson said. ‘Constantly blew my money away from being sued and going to court and just associating with the wrong people and making bad business decisions.’

‘And it was just the whole caboot, pretty much. That was just me getting caught up in a vortex of destroying myself,’ Tyson continued.

‘Love is not buying myself a new mansion, a new car. Love is buying somebody else a mansion. It’s pretty interesting I found that out late in life,’ Tyson said.

How long ago does Tyson actually mean?

‘Not too long. A year or two ago. The more money you give, you’re like the less I need,’ Tyson added.

Tyson has not fought in a sanctioned bout since 2005’s loss to Kevin McBride.

That will change this summer as the now 57-year-old Tyson gets back into the ring against Jake Paul on July 20, as the bout has been approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations.
