Boxing legend Mike Tyson is in the mood to give his social media followers something to reflect on.
For over a decade now, the world has been enjoying a seemingly reinvented “Iron” Mike Tyson.
Unlike in the past, Tyson now likes to utter some words of wisdom to celebrities and some of his fellow professional athletes through his own podcast “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson.”
On social media, Tyson also developed a habit of sharing his on point and sometimes mind-boggling thoughts. In fact, his latest pair of tweets is once again hard to decipher but it gives his millions of followers a hint at his take on his success and about being a “man” in general.
“Man is a compound of needs and necessities that can never be satisfied,” Tyson tweeted.
“I’m successful because I’m valuable, not valuable because I’m successful,” he wrote on another tweet.
Tyson last fought in November last year in an exhibition match against his fellow boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. Since then, fans have been clamoring for more, particularly a trilogy fight with his former heavyweight nemesis Evander Holyfield.
At 55 years old, Tyson is even being urged by some to make a stunning return to professional boxing. However, the “Baddest Man on the Planet” insisted that what he does now is way more fulfilling than winning a world championship.
“This is bigger than fighting and winning the championship,” he said after the draw against Jones in November via CBS Sports. “We’re humanitarians and we’re helping people.”
