Mike Tyson tells people to not feel sorry for Terrell Owens
Former boxer Mike Tyson made an appearance on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia with Mike Missanelli (via SportsRadioInterviews.com).
Tyson was asked about Terrell Owens’ financial problems.
“Well, listen, I can only say about myself,” said Tyson. ”It took a good 18, 20 years for me to go broke, but he got broke pretty quick. It happened quick! We saw him, heard about him signing this contract, but from what you told me, he busted his whole bill. That can happen man when you take liberties for granted.”
Tyson was asked if people should feel sorry for Owens losing so much money.
“No, we should have no sympathy for him, he’s a grown man. We should be jealous and pissed off he has so much goddamned fun. Shoot! That’s what we should be jealous about. Listen, this is one thing. When you’re living that life you think you’re a big boy — and this is one thing I learned when I was rolling like a big boy — I said ‘don’t worry about it, I can handle it, I’m a big boy.’ Big boys have big responsibilities and big circumstances.”
