The controversial boxer made harsh revelations that shocked his family

The controversial American boxer, Mike Tyson, has made statements and details about his fortune, which did not go down well with his family.

Tyson was one of the icons of boxing in the 90s and he won it all: world titles, fame, excesses and a lot of money.

It was that same position that led him to earn exorbitant amounts of money that, according to calculations by the boxer himself, exceeded 500 million dollars.

However, those piles of greenbacks disappeared, according to what ‘Iron Mike’ indicates, leaving no possibility for his children to inherit any of that amount.

“My last million dollars I spent on my rehabilitation because of the approximately 500 million that I made as a boxer, I had nothing left. Everything went crazy and it lasted me between 15 and 16 years, it seemed like a lot of money but eventually it was over, ”he detailed for a boxing podcast.

In total, Tyson made 56 fights on the professional circuit, leaving an impressive record of 50 wins and only 6 losses, of which 5 were by way of knockout.

Tyson decided to retire from professionalism in 2005 by suffering his second consecutive victory against Kevin McBride.
