Mike Tyson Makes A Grim Prediction About His Future

Mike Tyson is most well-known for his boxing skills. The star became one of the most famous boxers in the '80s, and throughout his career as a professional, he amassed an impressive record. According to LiveAbout, Tyson recorded an impressive 50 wins and 44 knockouts in the process. The star only lost six times, and the result of two other matches were no contest. Tyson's career in boxing paved the way for plenty of other business opportunities, including a small part in the 2009 hit film "The Hangover," where he famously played the role of, well ... himself. 

Tyson has spoken about his boxing career in countless interviews and frequently talked about life and death. In a 2020 interview with The Sportsman, the champion chatted about his perspective. "Living might be more complicated than dying to me. The belief of it. I don't know if it's true," he told the outlet. "Because living takes a lot of courage. Without the courage, you can't handle living." Tyson also pointed out that though he has a lot of success and fame, but it doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. "People have everything, and they still can't do it; they struggle. We take ourselves too seriously," he shared. "We think we're somebody. Who the f**k? We're nothing! We come from s**t; we think we're special! Fame is s**t.

Only two years after his comments on life and death, Tyson is making another prediction about his future, and it's making us very emotional.

Mike Tyson thinks he'll die soon

Mike Tyson is getting honest about how he sees his future. The boxer chatted with his therapist Sean McFarland on his "Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson" podcast, where they discussed a wide range of topics, including death. "We're all gonna die one day, of course," Tyson said. "Then, when I look in the mirror, I see those little spots on my face, and I say, 'Wow. That's my expiration date, it's coming close, really soon,'" the boxer shared. Umm, sad!

In addition, Tyson talked about money and how it doesn't mean much to him because it gives you a "false sense" that nothing bad can happen to you. He also said that his wife talked about security due to money, but he doesn't really get what she means. "​​When you put money in the bank, and you get a check every week, and you can live off of that for the rest of your life, is that security?" he asked. "That means you're not going to catch a disease, you can't get hit by a car? You can't jump off a bridge? I don't know. Is that security? Can money secure you from that?"

This is not the first time that Tyson has talked about death. In 2021, he spoke about his first "drug trip" to New York Post, stating that he thought he had died. "In my trips I've seen that death is beautiful. Life and death both have to be beautiful, but death has a bad rep," he stated. Wow.
