Mike Tyson
In 2002: "I think the average person thinks I'm a fucking nut and I deserve whatever happens to me."
Tyson quotes
"I'm not going to tell you I am a good father. I have to contribute to the world. I have to teach [my children] how to contribute to the world. Thatís our whole existence Ė to contribute to the world and make it a better place in some way. In my life I contributed to make it a bad place.Ē
Tyson
"I'm just a sucker even talking to you guys. I should be ready to rip your heads off your necks. But it's just not the right thing to do."




Tyson Mike quotes
"Her mother is beautiful, but she [Rayna] is so gorgeous she makes her mother look like a junkyard dog."
Tyson Mike
"My career has been over since 1990."
Mike Tyson quotes
"Most writers, in my opinion, are dysfunctional derelicts."
Mike Tyson
"People love you when you're successful, but if you're not, who really cares about you?"
Tyson Mike quotes
2005: ďI just donít have the guts for it anymore. I donít want to disgrace the sport. This is a great sport. It can take men from humble beginnings and have them rub shoulders with royalty.Ē
Tyson
"My main objective is to be professional but to kill him."
Tyson Mike
"Don't be surprised if I behave like a savage. I am a savage."
Mike Tyson
"One of my friends once saw another guy's (criminal) record and said, 'Look, this guy is a born troublemaker, just a loser.' I had to tell him, 'No, that's my record ó and it doesn't include my juvenile history.'"




Mike Tyson quotes
"I still canít believe [ Muhammad Ali] knows my name. It astounds me he knows who I am. I first met Ali in 1976. I was locked up in a juvenile home and he came to visit. Iíve never forgotten it."
Mike Tyson
"I just don't have the desire no more, I don't have the stomach to do it no more. I don't even kill insects in my house. I just don't kill anything no more. I used to kill pigeons, rip their heads off, 'You dirty rat pigeon!' I don't even have the heart to kill an animal no more. I just changed my whole life in general. That probably could have changed the way I fight."
Tyson quotes
1988: "I just have this thing inside me that wants to eat and conquer. Maybe it's egotistical, but I have it in me. I don't want to be a tycoon. I just want to conquer people and their souls."
Tyson Mike
"You guys would rather be with someone else who's equal to your status in life. Tiger Woods, or somebody. I comes across as crass, a Neanderthal, a babbling idiot sometimes. I like to show you that person. I like that person. He makes you want to come and listen to me."
Tyson Mike quotes
"My life has been a total waste."
Mike Tyson
"I got a imam, I got a rabbi, I got a priest, I got a reverend ó I got 'em all. But I don't want to be holier-than-thou. I want to help everybody and still get some (sex)."
Mike Tyson quotes
"I know I was a tough, bad-ass talking fighter, but I ain't no mob figure. I did my time for the rape. I paid my money to Las Vegas. I paid my dues. I ain't the same person I was when I bit that guy's ear off."
Mike Tyson
"Do you want to talk to me? Or what do you want to do with me? Watch my eating techniques here? How I gorge the chicken? How I eat like a barracuda?"
Tyson Mike
"People are trying to force me to redeem (myself) ó certain women, certain mentors. Nobody's going to change me. I'm going to fight that. You can't change me; you can't tame me. When you say that, I'm going to bite you even harder. I'm more ferocious, more complicated. I'm not going to let anybody win a popularity contest off my conduct. You have to understand. It is a pervasive (belief) that I'm an animal ó undomesticated as well. But regardless of the bizarre (stuff) I've done, I'm a very rational individual. But everybody still thinks I'm crazy and stupid because that's what they want to believe."
