Considering the amount of crazy moments that he has had in his career, it’s hard to think that there’s anything that Mike Tyson hasn’t done since he emerged on the boxing scene. Well, you can add impregnating a prison guard onto that list. Iron Mike was in Las Vegas for the first of his six one-man shows at the MGM Grand.
The show is aptly titled, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, and patrons in attendance got just that.
However, Tyson left out a rather large detail when he talked to ESPN’s Rick Reilly after the show on Saturday, telling the famed writer that he had impregnated a prison guard during his incarceration.
“Oh, yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby,” said Tyson.
Wow. Tyson’s laundry list of bizarre behavior over the years includes getting a facial tattoo, losing nearly $300 million dollars that he had earned over his career, biting Evander Holyfield’s ear in a 1997 bout and a sudden love for pigeons. And that’s an abridged list mind you.
Nearly having a child in prison might not even crack the top five wild moments in the life of Mike Tyson. Tyson also told Reilly about the copious amounts of drugs that he was hooked on before attempting to stay sober.
“I just liked morphine,” Tyson said, “but I had to take a lot of it because it didn’t stay in your system for a long time. … And I’d have my cocaine, and I had my marijuana, and I had my Cialis and Viagra and my little friends all sitting there. That’s just how I lived my life.”
Impregnating prison guards. Cialis and Viagra. Chatting with Mike Tyson is never a dull moment.
