    Tyson would go missing in his training camps for weeks. A lot of the time it was because of the contractual disputes and he wanted to retire after each defence he had. Tyson was motivated to train and destroy Biggs because he remembered him looking down on him in front of reporters as he made the Olympic team and Tyson was just an observer.

    Tyson trained less and partied hard and said he was not in condition to fight Bruno but still won. He was due to fight Ruddock but told Don to cancel the fight because he was not training but thought he could beat Douglas as he was an easier opponent. Tyson does not respect Douglas for giving up his title against Evander and said he was at an autograph signing event and hardly anyone wanted his autograph.

    it's a really good autobiography, isn't it?

    Tyson was genuinely a throwback to the Dempsey and Sullivan eras. A genuine nutcase, which is why people were so frightened of him.

    He might well have been happier in those days ..... if he wasn't black obviously

    I was shocked the amount of times he was sued for trivial and made up altercations.

    Mike found out that his first child was not his when he paid the mum $100,000 before he went to jail and she sued him for millions with that money by hiring a lawyer. There had to be a paternity test.

    The rest of the book, after his boxing career ended, is about battling his drug and sex addiction. Even when he lost his daughter in the accident, got married, got a new baby he still continued to take his cocaine. He could not stop.

    There was no one light bulb moment for him to stop, Tyson gradually understood that it was not a productive way to live.
