Mike Tyson was a scary man then and now. Even though he put fear in the hearts of many, he did not want to kill anybody.
The Baddest Man on the Planet allegedly used pre-fight sex to keep himself from committing in-ring murder.
“Mike would say, ‘If I do not get laid, I will kill this guy right now,’” Tyson chauffeur Rudy Gonzalez told The Sun.
Tyson feared he’d kill his opponents if he didn’t first engage in some intense banging.
“One of the greatest secrets with Mike was that he needed to have sex in the dressing room before fights,” said Gonzalez.
“He had to get laid to disengage some of the strength he had,” added Gonzalez. “So I had girls tucked away in bathrooms and changing rooms.”
It ultimately worked out as Tyson got his rocks off, and his opponents walked away with their lives.
“Mike would say, ‘If I do not get laid, I will kill this guy right now.’ Sometimes he’d go in with [the women] for a minute, bang the s–t out of them, snap his neck and say: ‘OK, this guy is going to live tonight,’ ” Gonzalez told The Sun.
Had Tyson not “emptied his gun” before stepping between the ropes, Gonzalez feels Mike might have a few bodies on his record..
“It is no exaggeration to say Mike was like a train hitting these guys,” said Gonzalez. “Having sex was his way of disengaging that power and loosening up a bit.”
Mike suffered from extreme anxiety and sometimes cried because of his fear of failure. According to Gonzales, Mike did not want to risk getting locked up or going back to his old neighborhood.
“He had an anxiety problem where he would be in despair with anxiety of not feeling good enough or not wanting to screw it up…Mike had the fear that if he screwed this up, he would end up back in his old neighborhood or be locked up,” says Gonzales.
