Former boxing champ Mike Tyson never fails to cause a stir. From shocking the world with his split-second knockouts and biting off his opponent’s ear, to serving three years in prison for rape and his public run-ins and outbursts, Iron Mike is a complicated figure.
Despite his hard-nosed rep, the boxer has been making attempts to reform his image. These days, Tyson has taken his talents to Las Vegas to star in a one-man show aptly titled, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth and judging from a revelation he dropped during an ESPN interview, he isn’t pulling any punches either.
When asked if he left anything out of his one-man show, Tyson told ESPN interviewer Rick Reilly that he didn’t tell the public about impregnating a prison official while he was incarcerated.
“I didn’t talk about getting a jail official, a prison official pregnant and stuff.” When Reilly looked surprised at the news, Tyson told him that inmates often fraternize with prison guards. “’Oh yeah. In prison, stuff happens,” Tyson said.
While he didn’t reveal who the woman was or if he met her during his three-year sentence in Indiana for rape or another stint in jail, Tyson said the woman “had no baby,” which I assume is one reason we haven’t heard about it before.
