London, Oct.26 (ANI): Former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has said that he has no regrets about his controversial career, adds that he became one of the greatest fighters in spite of his flaws.
At 43, Tyson a.k.a. "Iron Mike" now understands that he grabbed the headlines for all the wrong reasons during his quest to become the most fearsome fighter.
"Everything I have done, the good and the bad, catapulted me to become the person I was willing to become - and that's one of the greatest fighters that ever lived. I was happy to be the person who was savage because all my life I used to hear about these fighters who were savages, monsters and animals.
It made them almost inhuman and I loved the stigma behind those guys," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"That's why they continued to live in my head and that's why I wanted to be like them. They motivated me to be the guy that I became at that stage of my life. But that's all in the past now," he added. (ANI)
