Mike Tyson Speaks On Being Comfortable In Prison. Says When He Was Released He Had About $400 Million, But Didn't Know How To Cope [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

On February 10, 1992 Mike Tyson was sentenced to six years in prison for allegedly raping 18-year-old Miss Black Rhode Island, Desiree Washington, during the Miss Black America Beauty pageant in Indianapolis on July 19, 1991.

 

Fast forward to 2013 and Tyson vividly recalls his time being locked up. He served three of the six year sentence.

 

Iron Mike sat down with CNN's A.J. Hammer to talk about his experience behind bars.

 

 

"I was living the life of luxury in prison too, just not the same as I was outside," Tyson said of his life inside. "I had food, I was able to get what I wanted. I had girlfriends, it's just not like your freedom."

 

The boxing champion became so institutionalized that by the time he was released in March 1995 he didn't think he would be able to cope in the outside world.

 

"After I left prison I have to admit I was scared," Mike admitted during his One Man Show. "You ain't gonna believe this sh*t. I had $380 million to $400 million in my bank account. And not a clue how I was gonna survive the next 400 seconds."

 

Mike has since gotten his life together and is doing very well. Check out the interview below.
