(BlackMediaScoop) If things sounded bad before for Mike Tyson, who admitted to being “totally broke” in 2010, well … the ensuing years haven’t been overly kind.
The former boxer made his debut as a fight promoter on Friday, and what he said in a post-fight presser at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, NY, is raising eyebrows: “I’m on the verge of dying because I’m a vicious alcoholic and I’ve been, um, wow … this is some interesting stuff, I’ve been, um … I haven’t drank or took drugs in six days,” ESPN reports an emotional Tyson as saying, to applause. “And for me, that’s a miracle.”
The 47-year-old went on to admit to lying about his sobriety in the past and pledge to stick to a sober life in the future. “I’m never gonna use again,” he said.
Watch his confession…
Mike, we’re praying for you!
What do you think…are you surprised he’s been lying?
