Mike Tyson's former bodyguard and chauffeur, Rudy Gonzalez, recently spoke with The Sun and peeled back the curtain a bit on the boxing icon.
The part of Gonzalez's interview making its rounds are the remarks about Tyson having sex with groupies before fights out of fear that he'd kill his opponent.
“One of the greatest secrets with Mike was that he needed to have sex in the dressing room before fights,” Gonzalez said. “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 continued “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.’ ”
“His biggest fear was that he would kill someone in that ring. He knew he could do it,” he added. “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.”
