Mike Tyson on Lindsay Lohan: "She's not as bad as I was, but she's catching up"

Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Tonight" gets "ready to rumble," as former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson laces up his gloves and unleashes his patented brand of unfiltered perspective and unedited candor.

As news of actress Lindsay Lohan's latest brush with the law hits the headlines, Piers Morgan asks his guest – who himself was infamous for various legal missteps – to place the 26-year-old's series of incidents into context:

"She's not as bad as I was, but she's catching up. She's going to get there soon," says the the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles. "It's just a bad, dark place to be."

Having seemingly found a place of calm within his own world, Tyson offers some advice for the young woman who's been to five rehab facilities and in court 19 times:

"She needs an epiphany, she needs this paradigm shift in her life, to realize that everything that she's learned in life, even the good stuff that's allowed her to succeed in life, is all a lie. And now we have to start all over, and find out what's true, and what's not true."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening as the member of both the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the World Boxing Hall of Fame opens up about his mentor Cus D'Amato and demonstrates for Morgan the keys to a knockout.

    Nice job Piers interview a rapist, wife beater, felon, and troubled individual and ask him about Obama and the US
    I miss Larry King- he did not try to make anything political about the stupid interviews. Go back to the UK

      Calm down, let the man speak, it's apparent that he's a different man can atleast listen before you ridicule.

    Im glad Mike is getting himself together. For a while i thought he would be found somewhere with a gunshot to the head. SUICIDE! I hope Piers Morgan has him on the show from time to time just to get the raw and uncut Tyson opinion.

    Lindsay Lohan starred alongside Jamie Lee Curtis in the 2003 remake of Disney's family comedy Freaky Friday. At Lohan's initiative, her character was rewritten and changed from a Goth style to be more relatable.:`::
