Addiction is such a nasty, nasty beast!
And it's one Mike Tyson is struggling to fight.
The famous boxer surprisingly admitted at a press conference this weekend that he's been so seriously addicted to alcohol that he's been near death!
During the conference where he was promoting his upcoming fight card with Iron Mike Productions, Mike admitted:
"I wanna change my life, I wanna live a different life now. I wanna live my sober life. I don't wanna die. I'm on the verge of dying, because I'm a vicious alcoholic."
He has apparently now been drug and alcohol free for six days despite claiming in the past that he had been sober for years.
This will most certainly be a battle because he's already been to rehab more than three times before.
We sure hope Mike can fight and conquer his horrible demons before it's too late.
