Mike Tyson has been having a career renaissance. Tyson unretired back in 2020, but even if we take the boxing out of the equation Tyson has captured the attention of the young audience thanks to his podcast Hotboxin with Mike Tyson in addition to lucrative business moves.
However the boxing great fears his time on this Earth might be coming to a close.
“We’re all gonna die one day of course,” Tyson said. “Then, when I look in the mirror, I see those little spots on my face, I say, ‘Wow. That means my expiration date is coming close, really soon.’”
“Money don’t mean s–t to me,” Tyson said. “I always tell people — they think money’s gonna make them happy, they’ve never had money before — when you have a lot of money, you can’t expect nobody to love you. How am I gonna confess my love to you when you have $500 billion?
“The false sense of security. You believe nothing can happen. You don’t believe the banks could collapse. You believe that you’re invincible when you have a lot of money, which isn’t true. That’s why I always say money is a false sense of security.”
Tyson shared with his guest therapist Sean McFarland who specializes in trauma. Of course Tyson also dabs in hallucinogenics so its entirely possible he feels like that as a result of a trip.
Several months ago him and Joe Rogan exchanged DMT trip stories. Back then he told Rogan:
“I did this toad, this DMT stuff and I lost the weight. I don’t know what happened, I just said I’m going to do this. I did this toad and I said, you’ve got to do this… you have to do that [and] I lost the weight. It started with me fighting Bob Sapp, that was going to be the first fight. The fight with Roy Jones was supposed to be with Bob Sapp. Roy Jones got involved, other fighters got involved, Holyfield got involved and it turned into a fiasco. Jake Paul got involved and that was the birth of Jake Paul.”
