Clips From Last Night: Mike Tyson on losing his own and the Trayvon Martin case

In a primetime exclusive, last night Piers Morgan sat down with Mike Tyson to talk about his challenging life, and his new show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth – Live on Stage".

A few years ago, Tyson's daughter died, and on Thursday he told the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host that the experience was indescribable:

"I'm waiting for it to stop bothering, everything," Tyson said. "But some people say it never stops."

As the revealing interview continued, Tyson also shared his feelings on the story that's grabbed the nation's attention, the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Like many Americans, Tyson is using the media coverage to draw his own conclusions:

"I just know that a young man shouldn't be dead from this ordeal," explained the former heavyweight champ. "I want to believe that Mr. [George] Zimmerman did something wrong and illegal, but I wasn't there."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as the boxing Hall of Famer reveals a candid and engaging side of his persona.

    Dear Piers, in your interview with George Zimmerman's brother, you conducted yourself as a complete, total, pathetic piece of a$$ wipe. You made numerous incorrect statements which showed you (or your researchers) had not even researched for facts. The video you commented on is of very poor quality and appears to show Zimmerman as a bald man when recent pictures show that he definitely isn't. And then you climbed up on the lynch-mob bandwagon with rapist Mike Tyson! Zimmerman's brother conducted himself with dignity and class.

    I am a former Paramedic and Firefighter; if Mr Zimmerman had his head banged against concrete, he would have had a lot of bleeding a hematoma and possible fracture. The scalp and the head bleeds a lot because of all of the blood vessels that are near the scalp surface....The vidio at the police station indicated no such injuries.
