Mike Tyson Finally Explains Legendary "I Broke My Back, Spinal!" Comment And Can't Hold Back His Laughter

Mike Tyson Finally Explains Legendary "I Broke My Back, Spinal!" Comment And Can't Hold Back His Laughter

Mike Tyson has finally explained his famous "I broke my back, spinal!" comment and he couldn't hold back the laughter.

'Iron Mike' lost to Lennox Lewis back in 2002 and was asked about his performance moments after the fight.

He attempted to tell the audience he had an injured back, but instead blurted out: "I broke my back, my back is broken. Spinal!"

18 years later, he's addressed the comments in an interview with Compubox TV and said: "Well listen right, I have a bad back and since all of the work that I've put over the years, the spine in my back just starts shifting.

"I have to get the operation but the doctor said, 'Hey eventually you're gonna have to start bending over'.

"And so I was trying to explain my situation. I just wasn't eloquent enough to explain it in the way I wanted it to be explained."

Interviewer Dan Canobbio then explains that he laughs every time he watches the clip, before Tyson interjects with: "I think it's funny, it's really funny! What's wrong Mike? Spinal!" before roaring with laughter.

Mike Tyson Shows Off Frightening Hand Speed And Head Movement At 54-Years-Old

published ata month ago

Tyson is coming off the back of an exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr, with the two heavyweights battling to a draw last month.

His latest public appearance came on Logan Paul's 'imPaulsive' podcast, when he discussed the YouTuber's upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather.

When asked by co-host Mike Maljak for his take, the 54-year-old didn't hold back and flat out stated: "Floyd's gonna beat his f**kin' a**!

"But it's gonna be good! It's gonna be good, he's gonna fight back though!"

While his comments regarding Paul may come off as dismissive, the Brooklyn-native gave praise to Logan and brother Jake in November.

"Listen, my ego says so many things, but my reality is they help boxing so much," Tyson explained. "Boxing owes these guys. They owe these YouTube boxers some kind of respect. They should give them some belts because these guys make boxing alive.

"Boxing was pretty much a dying sport. UFC was kicking our butts, and now we got these YouTube boxers boxing with 25 million views. Boxing's back. Thanks to the YouTube boxers."
