Mike Tyson Lists Qualities Needed To Be In His Famous Entourage

Boxing icon Mike Tyson has described exactly what it takes to join his huge entourage, in case you wanted to get involved.

Tyson, 54, began his career back in 1985, when he became the heavyweight world champion for three years from 1987.

He recently spoke to former NFL star Terrell Owens on his podcast Hotboxin with Mike Tyson about what he looks for in a follower.

He said: "If people in your life and they don't have a purpose, what the f*** they in your life for?

"Anybody can be on the corner and say, 'Hey Mike, do this, do that'. But who's gonna suffer? Who's going to make this a better situation?

"I'm champ and I got money, what are you going to do to make this situation better?

"I'm a champ and I got all this money. I got $50 million, say $50 million, and I'm a young guy, 19 years old, what are you going to do to make this clan better?

"This situation I'm in, I'm young with a bunch of millions. How are you going to make it better? What are you going to do?

"That's my thing, when I'm in somewhere and I see a room and the room's dirty, I start cleaning the room. I want to do whatever I can to make this a better situation."

Tyson made his boxing comeback last year after 15 years away, and he recently said he smoked weed right before his exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr.

The 54-year-old ended up drawing against his 51-year-old opponent at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and luckily (for Tyson, anyway), drug testing for marijuana wasn't a thing.

Speaking to Bad Left Hook, the boxer said: "I smoked every day, I never stopped smoking," then when he was asked whether he smoked before the fight, he added: "Absolutely, yes."

He went on to say: "It's just who I am, it has no effect on me from a negative standpoint. It's just what I do, what I am, and how I'm gonna die. There's no explanation, there's no beginning, there's no end."

Then, when he was asked whether the weed numbs any pain from taking punches, he replied: "No, it just numbs me, it doesn't numb the pain."
