Mike Tyson just revealed to Sean Hannity the one thing he does that makes him great

Apr 8, 2024

In his prime, Iron Mike Tyson absolutely dominated heavyweight boxing.

His powerful punches terrified opponents leading to a series of first round knockouts.

But Mike Tyson just revealed to Sean Hannity this one secret that might have been the reason for his greatness. 

Mike Tyson earned the nickname “The Baddest Man on the Planet” during his championship boxing career.

He became one of the most feared boxers in the ring after he won his first 19 professional fights by knockout including 12 in the first round.

Now the 57-year-old former world heavyweight champion is stepping back into the ring for what could be his final match.

Mike Tyson squaring off with Jake Paul

Tyson is going to fight in an exhibition match against 27-year-old YouTuber Jake Paul at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Paul is a YouTube personality who’s transitioned into putting on celebrity boxing matches where he has fought other social media personalities, retired UFC fighters, and even former NBA player Nate Robinson – a 5’8 guard.

Tyson last fought in 2020 against former champion Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match which was his first fight since 2006.

But a recent training video for the Paul fight showed that Tyson was still a force to be reckoned with.

Mike Tyson talks to Sean Hannity about the fight

Tyson appeared on Fox News where he told host Sean Hannity that he’s “scared to death” about his upcoming bout against Paul.

“I have a weird personality – I don’t think it’s weird though. Whatever I’m afraid to do, I do it. That’s how it is,” Tyson told Sean Hannity on Tuesday night. “I was afraid of the great Roy Jones Jr.”

“I was 100 pounds overweight, I was however old, 54, 53, and I said ‘Let’s do it.’ Anything I’m afraid of, I confront it. That’s my personality. Right now, I’m scared to death,” Tyson added.

But that fear is what drives his success in the boxing ring.

“I always believed that adversity and nervousness pretty much catapulted me into success,” Tyson explained. “If I didn’t have these feelings, I wouldn’t go into this fight. I have to have these feelings to fight. Without them, I would never go in the ring.”

The closer it gets toward the fight the more Tyson said his confidence would pick up.

“As the fight gets closer, the less nervous I become, because it’s reality and in reality, I’m invincible,” Tyson said.

Paul has 10 boxing matches under his belt after he made his name on YouTube.

“I think it’s, you know, he came a long way from YouTubing — and listen, I’ve seen the YouTube of him at 16 doing weird dances,” Tyson stated. “That’s not the guy I’m going to be fighting. This guy is going to come out and then try to hurt me, which I’m accustomed to, he’s going to be greatly mistaken.”

Jake Paul is going to have to have the toughest match of his young career.
