On an endless promotional tour prior to his return to the ring, Tyson was inconsistent and tough as he switched his way through an interview with hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.
Tyson started a response saying, “I just want to do this, I plan to do this for a charity (inaudible).” “And I think I’m capable of doing that and that’s what I want to do.”
The 54-year-old has put his body through a punitive training regime to lose 130 pounds in preparation for a performance against fellow boxing Roy Jones Jr. next month.
And the former heavyweight champion said it was late-night tiredness, which led to a series of slewed answers.
Tyson tweeted to Morgan, “Hey mate … I tried to stay up late for the interview but fell asleep and it’s hard to fall asleep like I once was.” “Hard training and going to bed early. I didn’t have a monitor so I couldn’t see you guys and forgot to look into the camera. ”
“No problem, champion,” Morgan answered. “We could see that you were a little tired!” It was too late in LA. Appreciate this message because some viewers were worried. ”
