Flying High with Iron Mike Tyson

A very interesting profile of Iron Mike Tyson from  This paragraph stood out to me.
As we spent more and more time with him, I would learn that Tyson is predictably sensitive and thin-skinned, perceptive enough to know when someone has taken advantage of him, painfully aware of his own limitations and demons, unable to corral his least flattering qualities, petrified of any situation where he might lose control. In other words, he's the real-life Dr. Bruce Banner. You don't want to see him when he's angry, and frankly, neither does he. Maybe that's why he can't beat anybody like Lewis anymore, because he can't channel his rage. He can't control himself. And he knows it.
Read the rest.

Here is a video discussion as well.

This is a brilliant interview---fascinating even. Thank you for sharing it. It makes me want to hang out with Tyson. I wonder what he'd be like in a big conversation about the gospel?
