Tyson had an illustrious boxing career and the feared puncher won 44 of his 58 professional bouts by knockout.
But the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' also fought personal issues outside of the squared circle and even filed for bankruptcy in 2003.
During an episode of Hotboxin' With Mike Tyson, 'Iron Mike' told Brit superstar Tyson Fury he was thrilled at how his life had turned around.
He explained: "I can't believe I wanted to die so often when I was young [and] I used to think, 'God, I hate living.'
"Now I'm 53. I love living, I don't want to f*****g die, I hate the fact I gotta die now.
"Living is so interesting."
Tyson has also opened up about his collaboration with WWE in the 1990s, saying it helped him at a "crucial time" in his life.
