The Moment Mike Tyson Got So Emotional In An Interview He Told The Reporter To Leave

The Moment Mike Tyson Got So Emotional In An Interview He Told The Reporter To Leave

Mike Tyson was so emotional in an interview he had to politely ask the interviewer to leave saying 'you understand' as he calmly walked away.

Back in 2009 Tyson's four-year-old daughter Exodus died, after accidentally strangling herself on a wire. In an interview the former world heavyweight champion was discussing the incident.

'Iron Mike' visibly gets emotional talking about his feelings in the aftermath, eventually asking the interviewer to leave, in as polite a way as possible.

It's quite incredible to see 'the most dangerous man on the planet,' as he was known in the prime of his boxing career, be so vulnerable and open to emotion.

Exodus was found by her brother Miguel 'unconscious and tangled in a cord, dangling from an exercise treadmill,' her mother administered CPR but the child died a day later in hospital.

Just 11 days later Tyson got remarried, in an already arranged service, to third wife Lakiha "Kiki" Spicer, with whom he has two children.

The former two time world champ might have had a reputation for being a hard hitter but outside of the ring, since his boxing career has been over, he's shown a side of himself that is far more connected to his emotions.

In a more happy pouring out of his emotions, Tyson was in Las Vegas for his namesake Tyson Fury's fight against Deontay Wilder.

Whilst the Brit has respectfully said he wouldn't have beaten a peak 'Iron Mike,' Wilder spoke in the build up about he'd have beaten the Hangover star.

It was no surprise after the Bronze Bomber was outboxed for seven rounds that his fellow countryman was pretty happy.
