Former boxing heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson says the best thing that has ever happened in his life was his mother’s death.

In his stunning revelation that shocked fans, Tyson who had a bad experience as a child buttressed his points to exemplify the shocking revelation.

Tyson, in an interview with ShayShay Club, said if the mother were to be alive, he would not have had the opportunity to become a professional boxer because she would have given birth to babies that he would probably have to look after.

He also added that the mother was high-handed and would not have allowed him to be involved in street fights that made him discover his career.

Tyson said, “You know, one of the best things that ever happened to me is that my mother died. Because my mother would have made me babies. There’s no way I would ever get into a street fight. No way I would ever learn to stand up for myself.

“My mother really did a lot. Always going to police stations to get me out. She would beat me so bad in front of the police.

“She was loving, but she was kind of aggressive,” he added.

According to Tyson, who is the youngest boxer to have won the world heavyweight championship, the mother was fearless, drunk, and aggressive who would, at the slightest provocation, react ferociously.

He said, “Never had her life together, never pretty much worked. Wasn’t afraid to really beat you, hit you with anything, pretty much. Drank heavily. She had a lot of boyfriends and stuff. Sometimes her boyfriend would come over and be drunk, I would cut their pockets and rob their money.”
