Former boxing champ Mike Tyson has dedicated the rest of his life to caring for others – because he considers himself a “pig” who has “wasted” so many years of his life.
Tyson shot to fame in 1986 when he became the youngest boxer to ever win the World Boxing Council (WBC) world heavyweight title at the age of 20.
The boxer, nicknamed Iron Mike, went on to become the undisputed heavyweight champion before troubles in his personal life, including his allegedly abusive marriage to actress Robin Givens, began to overshadow his sporting achievements.
Now retired, Tyson admits he let his early fame and fortune go to his head and he regrets the first 44 years of his life as a “f**king waste”.
