Video: Mike Tyson Talks About Where His Money Went, Pacquiao-Mayweather and His Hall of Fame Status

If you’re a Mike Tyson fan like I am, one of the toughest things to witness was the once thought unstoppable heavyweight’s fall from grace and prominence in the world of boxing.

Whether or not you think he’s guilty of the charges that saw him spend some of the best years of his life in prison is irrelevant to his place in Boxing Hall of Fame and the trials and tribulations the beleagured former champion has gone through in his life, from falling victim to the trappings of success to hangers on like Robin Givens to losing a child.

The interviews above and below are must-watch material for any current and former fans or for those who want to know what happened to Tyson, beyond what he touched on in his acclaimed self-titled documentary.

I have an autographed pic of “Iron Mike” in his heyday on the wall of my office that I’m looking at as I write this that depicts the champ like I remember him and before all of his troubles outside the ring caught up to him. That’s how I want to remember him, because I’m a fan of his performances in the ring back then.

Check out the other parts of the interview below.

This Bensinger guy is the worst interviewer ever, hella awkward and stumbles everywhere.

I'm always down for a Tyson interview, but this interviewer made it pretty hard to watch.

Love and respect Iron Mike.

Jon Jones raped me. It's taken me a while to admit it. but, with time and counseling I'm now able to talk about it. And it's true! How, oh how, can I ever go back now!

I think a Jon Jones meltdown would be more him walking away from the sport to join a religious cult. I don't know that he's the raping type.

Rape is A-OK with CP. Now name calling... That's a big NO-NO.
Fatty McDickbutts- June 10, 2011 at 4:27 pm
Do you guys think 20-25 years from now they'll be doing the exact same shit with Jon Jones? I mean, kid's gonna have a meltdown eventually - nobody gets that good that fast and doesn't, if yannos what I means

I loved Tyson as a fighter, love his interviews, and I applaud his surprisingly sober attempts to find a place in normal society these days. But you just brush rape under the rug, and call it "troubles." It is fucking rape! RAPE!

I love Tyson, even when he was at his worst, but even more so when he was at his best. Good shit Ben!

Peter? mmmmyeah, I'm gonna need you to take a seat right over there, mmkay?

That interviewer, Graham Bensinger, is tough to listen to. I think I hate him. He sounds and looks like Chris Hansen fucked Bill Lumbergh and they had a child.
amsterdamheavy- June 10, 2011 at 3:25 pm
I will NEVER buy fucking AXE because of this shitty ad.

War Iron Mike!
