Mike Tyson Explains Why He Cried Before Heavyweight Fights

Mike Tyson is a complicated man with a wide range of emotions.

The former Heavyweight Champ says he used to cry before his fights.

Tyson would cry for his opponents, as he felt sad about what he was going to do to them.

“I’m pretty scared and I’m being scared that I’m gonna do something bad to this guy that his family’s not gonna like. And I’m gonna feel really guilty and really bad at the end. That’s how I fight,” he told Claressa Shields on his podcast.

Last week, Logan Paul said he wanted to fight the former heavyweight world champion.

“It’s been kind of possible for a little bit,” he said. “Then the rumors started circulating and we didn’t say anything. And then it got confirmed. And then I was reading the tweets and social commentary and everyone was saying ‘Mike Tyson will f*cking kill Logan Paul.’ So, a fight that I originally hadn’t considered people don’t think I’d win.”

Logan and Mike could still be agreeing to a fight. “I’m kinda considering it just to shut people the f*ck up. I find it absurd people don’t think I’ll beat Mike Tyson,” the Youtuber added.
