Oprah Gets ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson To Crack On His Daughter, Ear Biting
His first appearence on Oprah in support of the new documentary “Tyson.”
A seemingly medicated and awkwardly emotional Mike Tyson chops it up with “O” on topics from his marriage to Robbin Givens, to the death of his original trainer and father figure, Cus D’Amato in 1985, his time in prison, his new documentary, and his recent loss of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus.
Mike Tyson is the single most tragic figure in American Sports history in my mind. His demise has obviously been well documented and in a society where we feed on such meltdowns we have kept him in the public eye long after his functional fighting days have ended. This interview is the truly sad and proof of the truly flawed individual Mike is and I guess always was.
