Mike Tyson didn’t want to repeat same mistakes as own dad

London: Mike Tyson is keen to become a good man and a good father to his six children, as he never knew his dad when he was growing up.

The former boxing champion’s dad left him and his sisters to be raised by their alcoholic mother in a small apartment in crime-ridden Brownsville, which is still one of the most violent suburbs of New York, the Sun reported.

Tyson and his wife of 3 years Lakiha “Kiki” Spicer are biological parents of son Morocco and daughter Milan.

He has 4 other kids from previous marriages and relationships.
