Mike Tyson, who has had his share of the “celebrity bad boy” spotlight over the years, had a few things to say about the reigning heavyweight champion in that department, Charlie Sheen.
Tyson said Sheen’s life is like a mirror of his own past, adding, "I don’t envy anything about his life," reports FoxSports.com.
Tyson made the remarks before the taping of the “Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen" in Los Angeles, the story says. The show premieres tonight.
"My life is pretty much parallel to his," Tyson said. He noted that his own former wild ways will be the focus of an HBO scripted drama about a young New Jersey boxer.
"The show is going to be all about me … following me around as a kid, going to the gym, getting into trouble, getting people pregnant, unwed mothers, all that s–t, having babies out of wedlock all the f—ing time, getting up to stuff before fights, all that stuff," Tyson said, according to the story.
