Marriage helped me cope with rage over my daughter’s death, says Mike Tyson

London: Mike Tyson has revealed that his marriage to Lakiha “Kiki” Spicer helped him to deal with the death of his daughter, Exodus.

The 46-year-old former boxing champion married Spicer just 12 days after his 4-year-old daughter died in 2009, when her neck got caught in a treadmill power cord at her mother’s home in a terrible accident.

“After Exodus’s death I knew I needed to do something positive and not sit there full of anger,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

“I married the woman of my dreams. She’s not dark like me. I want to die with her,” he said.
