Mike Tyson made a living by delivering winning punches.

It is perfectly reasonable for him to deny the 1988 suicide attempt. If successful, it would have stripped the history books from one of the most emblematic heavyweight champions.

However, no one can deny the facts. Tyson called his former wife Robin Givens, threatening to suicide. “I’m going to go out and kill myself; I’m going to crash my car.”

The later investigation showed that the 22-year-old boxer was not wearing a seatbelt and that there is no other plausible explanation for his BMW crashing into a tree.

The 30 minutes knockout was by far the longest in his career. Nevertheless, Tyson lived worst moments than this. The boxing legend spent three years behind bars for rape and saw his daughter Exodus die in a tragic treadmill accident.

The next star that attempted suicide will leave you speechless.
