Former fighter Mike Tyson does not wish to speak about his 1992 rape conviction, evidently.
When an on-air horde at CP24, Toronto’s TV news channel, brought adult a conviction in during an talk on Wednesday, Tyson regularly swore and seemed to threaten the host.
The talk aired live and uncensored.
Host Nathan Downer had asked about Tyson’s new endorsement of Mayor Rob Ford.
“Some of your critics would say … we know you’re a convicted rapist, this could harm his campaign. How do we respond to that?” Downer asked.
“It’s so engaging to me that we come opposite like a good man though you’re unequivocally a square of sh-t,” Tyson replied. He seemed astounded by a question.

Tyson was on a hire to foster his one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, during a Air Canada Centre. On Tuesday he met Ford during city hall, later calling him a “best mayor in Toronto history.”
He was asked afterwards about his uneasy past and responded that his mistakes, like a mayor’s, have been in a open eye.
But when Downer asked a doubt some-more bluntly, Tyson reacted badly. Downer attempted to pierce on though a former fighting champion would not let it go.
“Hey, come on,” pronounced a CP24 host. “We’re on live TV here.”
Tyson responded that he didn’t care.
“What are we going to do about it?” he said.
The passion continued compartment a finish of a 90-second interview, with Downer signing off and Tyson fast following that with, “F-ck you.”
Tyson is deliberate one of a biggest heavyweight boxers ever, though has led a violent life, including a 1992 rape conviction, for that he served 3 years of a six-year sentence.
He also, famously, bit off part of Evander Holyfield’s ear in a 1997 bout.
Since Tyson’s retirement from veteran boxing, a New York local has seemed in films including The Hangover and embarked on his stream live tour.
Ford has met with with many celebrities and sports stars, including other former veteran boxers such as Canadians George Chuvalo and Charles (Spider) Jones, who have both permitted him in past.
