According to TMZ, Tyson dropped the bombshell at a press conference Friday in New York telling reporters he’s been lying to everyone for years about staying sober.

He confessed,
“I wanna change my life, I wanna live a different life now. I wanna live my sober life. I don’t wanna die. I’m on the verge of dying, because I’m a vicious alcoholic.”

A rep for Mike said,
“Unfortunately Mike has made some mistakes recently but fortunately he now recognizes them and is willing to fight his way back to the road of recovery.”

We wish him the very best of luck in getting clean and sober. We know it’s not easy but he’s Iron Mike Tyson, if anyone can take life’s punches and make it through to the other side it’s him! We’re pulling for you Mike!
