Boxing champ Mike Tyson is Larry King’s special guest tonight. It’s a poignant and often funny conversation that touches on everything from Tyson’s fight with drug addiction to his affinity for pigeons. That’s right, I said pigeons. “Larry King Live” airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET on CNN.
The “tramp stamp”? Not his style. The dolphin on the ankle? Cliché. How about a nice Calvin and Hobbs on the bicep? No, boxing great Mike Tyson went for the oh-so-subtle tribal tattoo. Across the left side of his face. It hurts me just to type that. Did it hurt “Iron Mike”? Larry found out.
Tyson tells Larry he did get into fights as a kid, but he wasn’t very good at it. Here, the two talk about why bullies are bullies, and Larry asks if Tyson’s ever met up with someone from one of his childhood fights.
Undoubtedly, “Iron Mike” Tyson’s done a lot in his life, simply for the bragging rights. Among them, pigeon racing. You got a problem with that?
