Mike Tyson made his debut as a fight promoter this weekend, but the big surprise came in the post fight conference where Iron Mike told reporters that he was on the verge of death.

Tyson has always battled with drugs and alcohol, but has supposedly been sober for quite a while now.  That all came crashing down when Mike told reporters, "I'm on the verge of dying because I'm a vicious alcoholic... I haven't drank or took drugs in six days. And for me, that's a miracle."

Tyson has went from the most feared heavyweight of all time, to a misunderstood fallen champion.  The latest phase of Tyson is a crystal clear picture of the struggles he goes through in his head on a daily basis.

In the ring everyone thought Tyson was fearless, but I think he is showing more courage now by talking openly about his problems, than he ever showed during his career.  I just hope that Mike is able to find the help he needs that will let him live a peaceful life.
