Mike Tyson: Day Of The Champions - Main Event Mike KO in Sydney, Australia...
Boxing legend and ex con, Mike Tyson, has been trying to get to Australia for years.
Recently Australian promoter Max Markson of Markson Sparks! helped 'The Baddest Man On The Planet' make it down under to Australia for what else - another pay day, and to Tyson's credit, he has turned his life around... gone are the drugs and the ho's, with Mike all family man and entertainer with his new lease on life.
Mike still is no angel, based on his badass public speaking and use of colourful language, but when you look into his heart and eyes you can see that he's cleaned up his act. He even told a women in the audience when quizzed about where he was staying in Sydney that he was staying in his own bed, doing nappies, and that's his only party...publicly showing that any womanising days are a thing of the past.
The Mike Tyson documentary - video package that showed before his talk was pretty interesting and entertaining, and showed footage from teen years to recent, and included the good, the bad and the ugly.
What's next for Tyson? More movies, more public speaking and more pay days. Sure beats getting punched in the head and guts for a living. Good on you Mike for making positive changes to your life and wishing you continued success and happiness.
Words of wisdom from Mike Tyson...
"The message of my show would be no matter what adversity hits you in life, don't give up - that's the only time you will lose," he said.
"Someone can be a champion and never have a title."
"We all have to endure some kind of pain," Tyson said.
"I like Evander. Evander's going to be all right.
"It's all about embracing yourself and looking for happiness through that.
"I learned that lesson. If I can make it in what has been a pretty interesting life he can do it as well."
