Mike Tyson has admitted to lying about being sober, telling reporters, “I’m on the verge of dying, because I’m a vicious alcoholic.”
The former heavyweight champ made the revelation during a startling press conference on Friday (see video below).
After veering into an unexpected tangent about wishing to “make amends” with everyone he’s hurt, Tyson declared, “I’m a bad guy sometimes. I did a lot of bad things, and I want to be forgiven.”
He continued, “So in order for me to be forgiven, I hope they can forgive me. I wanna change my life, I wanna live a different life now. I wanna live my sober life. I don’t wanna die. I’m on the verge of dying, because I’m a vicious alcoholic.”
Tyson says he’s ready to start anew.
“I haven’t drank or took drugs in six days, and for me that’s a miracle,” announced the boxing legend. “I’ve been lying to everybody else that think I was sober, but I’m not. This is my sixth day. I’m never gonna use again.”
