Concerned about Mike Tyson!
The former heavyweight world champion in boxing reveals details about his current state of health on “Newsmax TV”. In August, pictures circulated around the world of Tyson sitting in a wheelchair at Miami Airport. In the meantime, walking without a cane is hardly possible for the former champion.
The 56-year-old suffers from sciatica, a nerve disease that causes pain from the lumbar region through the buttocks to the leg.
The disease restricts “Iron Mike” so much that he sometimes cannot get a word out: “The disease keeps flaring up. When it flares up, I can’t even speak anymore. But I thank God that this is the only disease from which I suffer”.
Despite the complaints, the American is currently doing “greatly”, according to his own statement. And the optimism never stays away from Mike Tyson: “Everyone at my house is blessed, we are all grateful for what we have.”
In the last few days, Tyson has even been to Dortmund, where he attended a tobacco trade fair, according to “RP Online”.
