How Mike Tyson went bankrupt after he spent money on jewelleries, prostitutes

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, has admitted squandering his fortune on jewelry, prostitutes, mansions and cars which led to his bankruptcy in 2003.

The controversial former boxer said he was never “crazy” about money, but admitted he “went crazy with it.”.
It would be recalled that Mike Tyson’s financial collapse was as ferocious as his style of boxing.

After earning more than $300 million over his legendary career, the former heavyweight champion filed for bankruptcy in 2003, and later went to jail for cocaine problems.

It would take more than a decade, and a trip through rehab, before Iron Mike would escape bankruptcy.

“I didn’t think I’d make it through my thirties,” Tyson said last week during the SALT Conference, a Las Vegas event that attracts big names in money, politics and sports.
“My thirties were scary, weren’t they?” the 50-year-old former boxer said to nervous laughter from the audience.

He isn’t making a fortune like he once did, but he is making money by putting on a show at the MGM in Las Vegas and through a book coming out soon.

“I plan on keeping it this time,” said Tyson.

Tyson insists that thanks to his wife Kiki and support from friends, his life is back on track. He sounds determined to stay out of trouble, both financial and criminal.

“We made it out of our hellhole,” Tyson said to applause from the crowd. “I just knew it was time to grow up. It was time to be a man. Time to be present in your children’s lives.”

Tyson explained that it took a “whole deal of rehabs and institutions” before he could turn his life around.

“I’m one of the lucky ones,” he said.
Tyson enjoyed incredible success in the 1990s and his relentless fighting style earned him millions of fans.
When Tyson filed for bankruptcy in 2003, he reportedly had $23 million in debt. It was a stunning admission given his blockbuster career.

Looking back on it, Tyson admits he became accustomed to receiving fat checks and was taken advantage of by those around him.
“I can’t even call them leeches. That’s too decent of a word to call them,” Tyson said.
Today, Tyson is spending time with his family, mentoring young boxers and doing a one-man play based on his life at the MGM in Las Vegas called Undisputed Truth.

He also has a new book coming out about his time working with legendary trainer Cus D’Amato.
Tyson joked that when fans see him they “want to take pictures of me biting their ear.” He added, “We charge $200.”

Some of his colleagues were very shocked by the news of his death and also expressed their regret about the manner which his death occurred.




Dele Odule, lamented that Bakare died without reaping the fruits of his labour.

He said, “It is very saddening. I know that death is inevitable and everybody would go someday. The most unfortunate thing about his death is that he did not reap the fruits of his labour. He never enjoyed the dividends of stardom. What is the essence of being very popular without having money to take care of himself? He spent his life entertaining people and making them happy and I’m sad that his life ended that way.”

Fake soldier stabs man to death in Jos(Photo)

25-year-old Pokyes Danladi was stabbed to death by one Victor Oluwole described as “fake soldier.”

The incident reportedly happened on Sunday night at a popular drinking joint in West of Mines, Jos which residents regard as red light district.
Danladi was said to have bled to death when doctors at Birhman Hospital battled in vain to treat him.


The death has reportedly shocked Pokyes’ mother, Mrs. Martha Danladi, a former councillor in Jos North Local Government Area. She is currently on admission at the Nigeria Police Clinic in Jos.

Pokye’s dad, Dakuru Danladi, confirmed his wife’s hospitalisation.

Said to be the ‘baby of the house,’ Pokyes was said to be seeking admission to the university.




Although the suspect has been arrested by the security agencies, PUNCH learnt that the community has been gripped with fear because of speculations that his friends might regroup and cause more havoc.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the Plateau State Police Command, Tyopev Terna, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, confirmed the murder; saying the suspect had confessed to the crime, while the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department.

He said, “One person has been arrested. We don’t need to arrest more people. The suspect was arrested on the spot with the knife and he has confessed to the crime.
“We don’t need any other arrest; it is only when we don’t know the person who committed the act that we can start to look for suspects.
“The suspect said it was just an argument and that he was provoked and had to use the knife on the victim.
“The suspect said it was out of provocation. We wanted to write to Rukuba Barracks to confirm his claim that he was a soldier.
“But on interrogation, the suspect later on confessed that he was not a soldier but just used that as an escape route, not knowing that the Police would not leave him.”

Danladi demanded an investigation of the murder, calling on the government to ensure that justice was done in this matter.
