Earlier this week, while appearing as a guest on SiriusXM’s OpieRadio show, legendary boxer Mike Tyson came forth with a disturbing and tragic revelation. As a 7-year-old child, Tyson said, he was once “bullied … and sexually abused” by an “old man” who lived in the same neighborhood as him.
The crime was largely unknown to the public, as Tyson had only previously revealed it to those close to him. Opie and his crew were clearly shocked by the announcement. At one point, one of them nervously laughed, and blurted out, “Awkward.” It wasn’t a particularly smooth segment.
On the other hand, Tyson was calm and composed throughout his account of the incident and how he’s dealt with it since. He said that he isn’t “embarrassed or ashamed” of the assault, but did indicate that he hasn’t perhaps fully grappled with the incident and its effects on his life. “I don’t always remember” said Tyson. “But maybe I do, maybe I don’t.”
