Legendary boxer Mike Tyson told the world he believes his death is coming “really soon” and he opened up about his feelings on money.
The former world heavyweight champion made the prediction on the podcast Hot Boxin’ with therapist Sean McFarland.
Mike said on the podcast: “Some people want to analyze their success, which is ridiculous.
“We’re all going to die one day, of course.
“Then I look in the mirror and I see those little spots on my face and I go ‘wow, my expiration date is coming close, really soon, what do you do with that, how do you think about that death thing?”
“I would rather not die screaming. I’ve heard the last rights of a lot of people – a lot of famous people—and they’re getting ready to die, and they leave this planet screaming.”
He added that “money doesn’t mean s*** to me” and said it does not provide the security people think it does.
“What is security?’ he said.
“I don’t know. When you put money in your bank and you get a cheque every week and you can live for the rest of your life, is that security?
“It doesn’t mean you won’t catch a disease, or get hit by a car”.
Tyson, who his first professional fight in 1985 and hold the record as the youngest boxer ever to win a heavyweight title.
He later some s time in prison after being convicted of rape and was released in 1995.
The podcast was not the first time that the ex-boxer has spoken candidly about death.
At a conference on psychedelics in Miami in 2021, Tyson revealed he had used Sonoran desert toad venom for psychedelic purposes, saying he felt like he “died” on his first trip.
