Just a reminder, we all know about the incidents Mike has caused after his fall. Like that time when he chew on Holyfield's ear. This is not one of those questions, it does not invite to elaborate everything you read in some 7/11's magazine.
I would like to ask boxing fans and sport enthusiasts from all over to go with me just a bit deeper so we can try to unveil the importance of the coach as a father figure in young athlete's life, as well as how important it is to be very careful about making careful steps when choosing your manager.
As duffsmom already mentioned (thank you for your comment), Mike admitted having a mood disorder; Do you see the connection here - when Cus was alive
Mike's disorders were under control, keep in mind, you have to control a teenage heavy weight boxing prodigy! And Cus did it. It is my humble opinion that everything went downhill after his death. Mike was lost. Fragile young mind like that, introspective and shy the way he was, but very aggressive when felt hurt, he was a perfect catch for vultures of all sorts. When they told him that Cus died, they also explained to him that they should go to his bank to take the money from his account (around 100 000 dollars) to "take care of the funeral", he did it of course, but while at the bank, employees asked Mike's manager is everything ok with the kid because he was crying uncontrollably for almost an hour!
All these things make me think that there must be much more about Mike Tyson then Evander's ear bite,(after 4 consecutive had butts but i still condemn him for it), 3 years jail sentence and cursing while talking to a TV host. His environment used him while he performed and there was not a single person next to him when he lost to Buster. Not to mention Robin Givens and her mom, poor souls, 70 million in less then a year, but that is a story for those 7/11 magazines i mentioned above, have a great day all of you, regardless of your religion, skin color of nationality!
