*The Transformation of Tyson. Once dubbed “the baddest man on the planet,” and a fearsome presence in and out of the ring, former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson enjoyed massive success as a knockout artist, reportedly earning more than $300 million in purses, all of which is gone. Following memorable roles in Hollywood films, including the “Hangover” franchise, the 46-year-old has reinvented himself yet again. Tyson has taken his talents to the stage as the star of a one-man show full of anger, humor and tears. In this REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated collaboration, correspondent Bernard Goldberg goes one-on-one with the pugilist as he sets off on a North American tour and uncovers an introspective side of Mike Tyson few have seen before.

Producer: Nick Dolin.

Reinventing himself after earning and squandering a few fortunes in the ring, Mike Tyson and his wife Kiki see the reality of his financial situation:

MIKE TYSON:  “I'll never be wealthy again.  That's a wrap.  That's history.  That's never gonna happen again.”

HBO’s BERNIE GOLDBERG:  “So you're making a living doing the play?”

MIKE TYSON:  “No, I, that belongs to IRS. All that money goes right to them.  I don't see none of it.”

BERNIE GOLDBERG:  “Really?”

MIKE TYSON:  “Really.”

BERNIE GOLDBERG:  “So you're working for the IRS. right now.”

MIKE TYSON:  “Yeah.  I'm a great client, too.  I work real hard.”

BERNIE GOLDBERG:  “Give me a round number of what you owe the IRS.”

KIKI TYSON:  “Oh, geez.”

BERNIE GOLDBERG:  “What’s the, is it, is it six figures or seven figures?”

KIKI TYSON:  “It's six.”

BERNIE GOLDBERG:  “Six figures?”

KIKI TYSON:  “No, it's seven.”

BERNIE GOLDBERG:  “You owe millions? Plural?”

KIKI TYSON:  “Uh-huh (affirm).”

BERNIE GOLDBERG:  “Whoa.”

BERNIE GOLDBERG: $3 million?

KIKI TYSON:  “No comment.”

They all can't be George Foreman. George is probably the wealthist retired champ.

[QUOTE=billeau2]Correct yourself sir...I can guarantee that with this understanding you will never be rich. Here is the rich mentality: The richest man in China has five sons.
