Tyson outraged fans with a shocking statement

American boxing legend Mike Tyson said he felt “on the verge of death” and this prompted comments from his fans who expressed sympathy for him.

Social networks were flooded with comments, some of which indicated that the famous boxer was really tired, while others confirmed that these were just baseless conversations.

The confusion arose after the 56-year-old former heavyweight boxing champion appeared on an audio podcast with Sean McFarland, an American trauma and addictions psychotherapist, and spoke about the death.

“Of course we’re all going to die someday,” Tyson said. “When I look in the mirror, I see these little spots on my face and I’m like, ‘Wow! This means my expiration date is very close.”

Tyson added that all wealth does not bring happiness and security, as many believe, explaining: “Money means nothing to me.”

“I always tell people that they think money will make them happy,” he continued, referring to “a false sense of security. You think that nothing can happen. You don’t believe banks can fail.”

Tyson explained: “You think you are invincible when you have a lot of money, which is not true. That’s why I always say money is a false sense of security.”

Tyson gained wide exposure from his youth as he became the youngest heavyweight champion in history after defeating Trevor Berbick in 1986 at the age of 20 and won 50 of 58 pro fights before retiring.

He retired after losing to Kevin McBride in 2005.
