Mike Tyson Would Be Uncomfortable in a Room With His Former Self


I’m sorry that I bit him because I started really liking him again. He’s a good guy, you know what I mean? I was just pissed off, and I bit him. Undisciplined. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to do it. I can’t handle being that guy [anymore]. You know, that guy’s a creation. Iron Mike, the baddest man on the planet? There’s nobody like that. People like that don’t exist. I just had the audacity, the idiocy, to say it. If this guy here was next to that guy, I would be uncomfortable.” —Mike Tyson, on Evander Holyfield, whose ear he once bit, and growing up.
