Mike Tyson Admits His Bad Temper May Never Go Away

Mike Tyson, who has gone from boxing world's wild child to a devoted family man, has admitted that he still has to work on his temper.

The former boxing champion said that he wanted people to show him some respect.

"What the ---- is this bull----? Eyes on mine", Mike Tyson slams his fist down on the leather sofa. Then he smiles - a smile that travels slowly up from those sadistic-looking incisors to the flames tattooed over his left eye.

"That was what I was like back then. I had this rage inside and suddenly I'd lose it," the Telegraph quoted him as saying in an interview.

"But I couldn't be a nice guy and accomplish what I accomplished. I wanted the people who got in the ring with me to think they were dealing with a savage. I wanted them to show me some respect," he said.

Tyson bit off Evander Holyfield's earlobe and attempted to break both Francois Botha's arms during a fight. He is a convicted rapist; he has Mao's face tattooed on his right bicep.

But talking to those who know him best, he is a changed man: a devoted husband and father of eight who, at 45, has been sober for over three years.

"It's about control. Every day, it's about control," Tyson says, his lisp giving him a curiously childlike air.

"Although I don't think the rage will ever be gone, I do know that I don't want to get into trouble any more.

"I want my wife and children to respect me. I want to build a healthy, functional foundation for us and the kids," he added.

Mike is the real life Incredible Hulk. And like Bruce Banner says in The Avengers, his secret to controlling the Hulk is that he's "always angry". Meaning...he doesn't fight the anger, he controls it and knows where to aim it.

Hopefully he can control that rage and don't relapse again. He is also older and age tend to slow down most ppl

hard to shake a lifetime of getting abused and fucked over by people but he seems like he's been happy since he retired getting out of boxing helped him and getting in the HOF was an appeasing touch for him Mike's calmed down, but still not a man to be fucked with
