Mike Tyson explains his famous broken back speech


Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson recalled his famous interview after the fight with Clifford Etienne, during which he said that he broke his back, which greatly perplexed the interviewer. As the legendary boxer explained, then he simply did not have enough words to properly describe his health problems.

“Look, I had a problem back. Considering all the work I’ve done over the years, my vertebrae started to shift due to wear and tear. I ended up having to have surgery. Then the doctor said I needed to start bending.

I tried to explain my situation, but I was not eloquent enough to do it the way I wanted. I think it was a lot of fun. Oh my god, ha ha ha, “said Mike Tyson in an interview with Dan Cannobio.

We will remind, Tyson also told how he managed to lose 45 kilograms before the exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr.
