Good point India. Boxers seem to have a lot of 'issues' probably stemming from getting knocked upside the head so much.
I wonder if they research boxer brains like they do football players will they find the same traumatic brain damage?
Hopefully he gets the help he needs before it is too late.
Sorry but Mike Tyson was messed up in the head long before he got into boxing.
He was basically homeless and when as a kid people found out he was good at boxing they basically used him (enter Don King!). This made his mental situation even worse .. causing him to act out - biting off ears, beating up women and all the rest of that crazy s*** he did years ago.
He had a troubled, abusive childhood ... this is at the root of his problems.
He has tried to get help for his mental problems for years and years now .. so at 47, honestly I am not so optimistic that he will overcome his problems - he might make it though.
I think he is already sick though ...as I see his eyebrows and other facial hair is ... gone. He looks odd about the face.
