53-year-old Mike Tyson said that he had reached the bottom in 2009, when there was an incident involving seven prostitutes and cocaine use. The former world champion in the heavyweight division said that he began to beat up women because of a paranoid attack:
“I was lying on the bed in the hotel room. Try never to be alone, even if it is a prostitute or a dog. It was really dark. I was in my hotel room, I had 7 women, and I had morphine, cocaine, pills Viagra, more marijuana and Hennessy.
I was on the bottom because I was overtaken by paranoia. I thought that these women are trying to Rob and ruin me. I started to beat them up. All around was dark. However the goal was because I didn’t want to give them more soul.
It was the devil, and he won. I drove them all. So that was my low point. I was in a sweat. Barely survived, a little heart is not stopped. Since then, no more cocaine”.
Tyson said recently that he has resumed training and is going to participate in exhibition fights for charity.
