One of the greatest boxers of all time, the youngest world heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson, in an interview with ESPN, discovered a long guarded and terrible secret.
It is known that the controversial world heavyweight champion as a child grew in extreme poverty, that the father left the family while he was a child and that his mother and sister died when he was 16 years old.
But no one knew that Tyson was sexually abused as a child.
“I was a kid. He was an adult. He beat me and sexually harassed me. I never saw him again, “Tyson said in an interview with ESPN.
After a shocking discovery, the journalist asked him if he had told anyone about this case. Totally broken Tyson was silent first, and then answered with a question: “Why are we still on this subject sexual harassment?”
The journalist’s response was logical: “Because I have never heard you talk about this topic before.”
“I never told anyone this,” Tyson said.
The steel Mike then said that sexual harassment had no effect in his later life, that is, the boxing helped him overcome it.
“Of course, I carried the anger in me, but no one would touch me anymore,” Tyson concluded.
