Think you really know Mike Tyson? Think again

In this Feb. 11, 1992, file photo, boxer Mike Tyson hitches his pants as he leaves the court in Indianapolis after being convicted on one count of rape and two counts of criminal deviate conduct. At one time he was the baddest man on the planet, a heavyweight champion who terrorized anyone who got in his way, inside the ring or out. More recently he's unburdened himself as perhaps the most tortured soul on earth, with a one-man show on Broadway that Spike Lee has turned into an HBO special airing Nov. 16. Now he's got a new autobiography that might be the most soul baring book of its genre ever written. The title is "Undisputed Truth," and the truth is that Mike Tyson is one messed up dude.

The urge struck me about halfway through Mike Tyson’s latest adventure, just after he told the audience about how his mother loved the bottle more than she loved him. Or maybe it was when the big video screens showed a young Tyson serving as a pallbearer for Cus D’Amato, the man who molded his boxing career and the only man he really loved.
