Mike Tyson might have the reputation of being an invincible man that can do anything and even divide the laws of physics. Sadly, Father Time is catching up to the boxing legend.
Recently, Tyson has said that his “expiration date” was coming soon and in these photos taken Tuesday, he was wheeled through a terminal at Miami International Airport. The icon and Mike Tyson Mysteries star carried his walking stick with him while he took photos with fans.
Mike seemed dressed for the weather down in Florida, wearing an all-white outfit of shorts, shoes, and a white Nike polo shirt. His now-trademark gray beard was there, and he seemed to be cool.
Weeks prior, Tyson was out in New York City with his walking stick. He was moving slowly during the July 26 outing, causing some to be concerned. According to TMZ, he wasn’t dealing with any new complications. He was “dealing with a sciatica flare-up,” and that his condition was “nothing serious.”
It was just some old “wear and tear” from living his life, an “occupational hazard for an athlete like Mike.” What caused everyone to be concerned is that days before this NYC sighting, he said his life was coming to an end.
Interestingly enough, Tyson also discussed his own mortality during a recent episode of the Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson podcast.
“We’re all going to die one day, of course. When I look in the mirror and I see those little spots on my face,” said Mike, “I say, ‘Wow. My expiration date is coming close. Really soon.’”
Mike Tyson might not be getting around very well, but it seems that his spirit is still very much going in full force. We’re all hoping for the best for “Iron Mike.” Thirsty will monitor this developing story.
