Recently, a lot is being discussed about Mike Tyson’s life following several roaring incidents have now come to light. Now, the legendary boxer’s former chauffeur Rudy Gonzalez has dropped yet another shocking secret about the boxing legend.
During a recent interview with The Sun, Gonzalez shared how Tyson devised a way to stop himself from killing his opponents in the ring during a fight. He revealed the harrowing secret and shared that he would have sex to “loosen up” before his boxing bouts because he was filled with so much adrenaline that he feared he would kill his opponents.
Tyson would "bang the sh*t" out of random women before entering a fight, simply to keep his adrenaline in control.
"One of the greatest secrets with Mike was that he needed to have sex in the dressing room before fights. He had to get laid to disengage some of the strength he had. So I had girls tucked away in bathrooms and changing rooms," Gonzalez claimed.
Rudy Gonzalez served as the uncontested heavyweight champion’s chauffeur during the 1980s. In 1992, he was convicted of rape and served a sentence of three years. After being released on parole, he continued to participate in fights till he retired in 2005.
Apart from his boxing successes Tyson also decorated the headlines for his activities outside the ring. Recently, he recalled the time he "died" trying to do psychedelic toad venom.
Rudy Gonzalez has also spilled the beans on Tyson's secret trysts with groupies before every fight. The habit supposedly stemmed from his fear of accidentally killing his opponent during a fight.
“He had an anxiety problem where he would be in despair with the anxiety of not feeling good enough or not wanting to screw it up. Mike had the fear that if he screwed this up, he would end up back in his old neighborhood or be locked up," Gonzalez shared.
He further added, "His biggest fear was that he would kill someone in that ring. He knew he could do it."
He also shared that Tyson would often burst into tears in the dressing room ahead of his fights due to his adrenaline rush and emotionally vulnerable state.
"It is no exaggeration to say Mike was like a train hitting these guys. Having sex was his way of disengaging that power and loosening up a bit," he added. "Mike would say, ‘If I do not get laid, I will kill this guy right now.’ Sometimes he’d go in with them [the women] for a minute, bang the s–t out of them, snap his neck and say: ‘OK, this guy is going to live tonight," Gonzalez recalled.
Meanwhile, Mike Tyson is yet to make comments on his past sex habits or his alleged fear of killing his opponents in the ring.
