Mike Tyson Documentary Covering His Life Is Coming To Netflix And It Looks To Be Emotional
Mike Tyson has revealed 'happiness for him is in death' in an upcoming Netflix documentary that will document the boxing legend's life.
'Iron Mike' is currently training for his first fight in over 15 years and he'll face Roy Jones Jr on November 28.
He is currently training with MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro and he told media per The Sun that the former world champion will be the star of a new documentary.
While filming, Cordiero approached Tyson and asked what true happiness is, to which the 54-year-old replied, "Happiness for me is death, because I saw many bad things and lost many bad things in my life."
'The Baddest Man on the Planet' is widely regarded as one of the most complex individuals in sport and he has battled a number of demons throughout his life.
1992 saw him sentenced to three years in jail after being found guilty of raping Desiree Washington, while battles with drug addiction blighted retirement.
But a turnaround in Tyson's life now means he is fit enough to return to boxing - and he doesn't plan on stopping with Jones Jr.
Cordiero has claimed the Brookylyn-native could go at it another three times following the Jones Jr fight.

"He is very happy to do three more fights next year and suddenly fight for great things," said Cordeiro per The Sun.
"If he wants to do something in the future, he is going to be ready to do that - 100%.
"As soon as we started training I said, 'My Lord.' I didn't know what to expect from a guy who hasn't hit mitts for, I think, almost 10 years...
"I saw a guy with the same speed, the same power as a guy who is 21, 22 years old.
"You would have to be a good guy to spar with Mike, because if you don't prepare, he is going to drop you for sure, 100%.
"The power is different level. I have trained a lot of heavyweights in my career, with not a lot of respect for everybody, but he is almost as powerful as Wanderlei Silva is right now.
"When you talk about power, I held his right hook and thought, 'He is going to kill somebody.'"
