Mike Tyson Opens Up Even MORE About Daughter's Death

Just a few days ago we heard a bit from Mike Tyson about jumping into a marriage to help deal with the death of this daughter, Exodus.

Now, he's opening up even more what that tragic event meant for him, his future, his health, and his happiness.

Here's what he said:

“I was insane. I had this rage – but that’s what made me a great fighter. I wanted people who got in the ring with me to think they were dealing with a savage. I wanted them to show me respect. I was a pig then. A pig. After Exodus’s death I knew I needed to do something positive and not sit there full of anger. I stopped drinking and for six months I only ate tomato and basil soup and water. I lost over 100lb and I haven’t had meat since. I don’t want anything in me that’s going to enrage me — no processed food, no meat. It’s much harder to be a good man than a great boxer. I needed to be a good man and a good father.”

While we're sure you'd much rather have your daughter with you still, we can't help but think that some things have had a very positive result from something so sad.

We're proud of how much you've changed, Mike!
