Has Mike Tyson calmed down or is he just on a lot of meds?

Asked by simone54 (7453 points ) February 13th, 2013

Mike Tyson, one of the most interesting people in the last couple of decades, has come from being a huge lunatic to very calm docile, puppy dog. Has he actually got his stuff together or is he just taking a lot of drugs to stay calm.

I think he was always a good man, humble, just had a lot of shit going on in is his life & surrounded himself with greedy money grabbing bastards.
Whenever he spoke about family life or the history of boxing he came across as sincere, compassionate & well educated. I guess now, he’s allowed to be himself & he’s at peace with that, good for him.

Probably both.

He may be finally mellowing a bit. He was a 13 year old street thug when he came across Cus D’Amato, who turned him around. But when Cus died he got into the wrong crowds and lost his bearing. I hope he’s got it together now.

My guess—For years, he took performance-enhancing drugs and had some nasty ‘roid rage. Now that he’s retired from his boxing career, he’s doing much better.
