Mike Tyson, the former World Champion, returned to the ring on November 28 for an exhibition battle against Roy Jones Jr. after nearly a decade and a half away.
At the age of 20 years and 22 days, Mike Tyson, unquestionably one of the best heavyweight boxers of all time, became the youngest person to win a World Championship.
From 1987 until 1990, he was the undisputed Heavyweight Champion.
Mike Tyson, on the other hand, has had a tragic existence. He’s been through it all, from losing his mother at a young age to serving time in prison.
The death of his four-year-old daughter, Exodus, was possibly the greatest tragedy of his life.
Exodus Tyson died in what manner?
Exodus, Mike Tyson’s four-year-old daughter, died in a tragic and regrettable accident.
Exodus Tyson was discovered with a treadmill machine cable looped around her neck by her seven-year-old brother at their home in Phoenix, Arizona, according to sources.
The small child notified his mother, who attempted CPR on Exodus before dialing 911.
Exodus was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support. Mike Tyson, 42 at the time, was in Las Vegas at the time of the tragedy. As soon as he heard the news, he flew to Phoenix.
Exodus Tyson died on May 26, 2009, at 11:45 a.m.
Exodus was only playing with the cords, according to Sgt. Andy Hill of the Phoenix Police Department, who spoke with the media.
The equipment was not turned on, and she was not running on a treadmill when the accident occurred.
“We believe the child was on the treadmill at the time, but it was not running. She may have pretended to be someone else.”
“She was playing on this treadmill for some reason, and there’s a cord that hangs under the console in a loop.
Either she slipped or her head got caught in the loop, but it acted like a noose around her neck, and she was clearly unable to free herself.
There was nothing in the investigation that raised any red flags.”
Mike Tyson on the death of his daughter
The Tyson family issued a statement shortly after his death was announced, as is traditional.
“The devastating death of our beloved Exodus can’t be described in words.
We beg you now to kindly respect our need at this very difficult time for privacy to grieve and try to assist each other heal.”
Mike Tyson has spoken about the incident on several occasions over the years, but rarely with a level face and a firm voice.
Mike Tyson came on Oprah Winfrey’s show and broke down in tears when talking about his late daughter barely five months after her death in one of the most well-known interviews.
Mike Tyson admitted that he didn’t want to know whether his daughter’s death was genuinely the fault of someone.
“There was no resentment. There was no rage directed at anyone. I have no idea how she died, and I don’t care. There will be an issue if I know who is to blame for it.”
Mike Tyson’s return fight with Roy Jones Jr. ended in a ‘draw,’ but the 54-year-old looked in fantastic shape.
