Mike Tyson Leaves Eminem Shook To The Core With Powerful Statement About Killing People

Mike Tyson Leaves Eminem Shook To The Core With Powerful Statement About Killing People

Boxing legend Mike Tyson stunned Eminem by insisting that he would "f*****g kill" anybody that would have disrespected his former legendary trainer, Cus D'Amato.

D'Amato, who passed away in 1985, took 'Iron' Mike under his wing at a young age and played an instrumental role in his development as the ultimate fighting machine.

And Tyson's former trainer instilled confidence in the ex-undisputed world champ and taught him to adopt his now-trademark 'peek-a-boo' boxing technique.

The 'Baddest Man on the Planet,' 53, opened up to Eminem about meeting D'Amato and how he would have manhandled anyone who laid a finger on his father figure.

Tyson told the rap legend on Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson: "My confidence was so low, I had such a low self-esteem, I was just a criminal.

"I first met Cus, I saw his house and was like, 'I'm gonna rob these white motherf*****s.' And then he gave... he kept talking to me and gave me self-esteem.

"And then he made me want to be his watchdog, and if anybody said anything about him I'd kill them."

Eminem's face turned serious and he responded: "I believe you. I believe you [chuckles]."

Tyson, who made a stunning cameo in the rap legend's music video for his 'Godzilla' song, doubled down on his comments and explained why he would have killed anyone for D'Amato.

"He had my mind just like that. If anybody disrespected him... he made me feel something, he made me feel like something I never felt before," he said.

"And I said that if anyone disrespected him, I would f*****g kill them. That's just how it is.

"Because in the ghetto that's how you show your love by killing somebody or hurting somebody for somebody."

Eminem, who is a massive Tyson fan, also shared his two cents on a viral clip of 'Iron' Mike rolling back the years and showing his incredible boxing skills.
