During the heights of his career, former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson revealed that he was bedding numerous women per day.
Tyson lived a very fast lifestyle, which he explained in his autobiography. He continued to see women on a very regular basis while serving time in prison for a rape conviction in the early 90s.
“I was having so much sex that I was too tired to even go to the gym and work out. I’d just stay in my cell all day,” Tyson wrote.
Tyson, now 53-years-old and retired from the sport since 2005, admits he could never have the same lifestyle as he did in his younger years.
“You can’t f–k girls like you used to when you were young,” Tyson said on his Hotboxin’ podcast.
“You can’t be having bitches around like you do when you were young. They f–k up money, I didn’t know that. They were fun then, but when you’re older they aint fun no more. f–king all day aint fun no more, you want some f–king money, you know what I mean.”
And in dealing with so many women, Tyson explains that he was blowing through all of his money.
Tyson was forced to file for bankruptcy in 2003, after earning over $300 million during his career.
“Giving people money like f–k everybody, party with everybody and f–k 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 said.
“I was out of control drinking, gorging on food, f–king women.”
Tyson’s former manager, Rory Holloway, stated in an interview that women may have been the reason for Tyson’s downfall as a fighter.
“I knew there was nobody in the ring who could stop him. The only reason he may not go down as the best is because of his weakness for women. Every decision he made was around women and sex,” Holloway said.
“I knew it would catch up with him, and it did. I don’t think there is a single person alive who could’ve changed the outcome.”
