Mike Tyson on "Knockout" game: "There's just some evil people"

As part of a special pre-holiday edition of "Piers Morgan Live," this evening at 9 the program welcomes Mike Tyson for a face to face interview that promises to serve a hearty helping of personality, and several side dishes of candor.

As a terrifyingly dangerous trend has given birth to a street "game" entitled "knockout," Piers Morgan asks the former boxing champion for his reaction to an activity which centers around the sucker-punching of unsuspecting strangers in hopes of rendering them unconscious.

"I don't make anything of it, it doesn't make any sense, it's a game to some people. I don't think it's cool," says the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles. "I saw one guy hit a woman, hit a girl, from behind."

Joining the host in his Los Angeles studio, the guest admits that a younger version of himself might have participated in a similar brand of violence, but under entirely different circumstances:

"If I was on a robbing spree, if I'm robbing somebody, yeah, when I was a young kid I've done something like that. But this is just for fun, these guys ... there's just no purpose of doing it," says the man once nicknamed "Iron" Mike. "I just couldn't imagine. The only thing I could imagine, that being my daughter. Or my wife."

Asked by the Morgan how anyone could engage in such brazen yet cowardly behavior, and Tyson finds himself at a loss:

"I have no idea. I don't have no idea. I just don't know, maybe they're just evil. There's just some evil people."

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 mother, his father, and his late daughter.

    This thug admitted to a life of mugging people from his youth to adulthood. He ran with a wolfpack.
    He was managed by gangster Don King and did steroids and cocaine throughout
    his career and ruined the heavyweight division of boxing.
    Bring on Don King to refute what this slug has to say.

    Always knew that Piers was something of an idiot, pandering to the left at every opportunity, but I am amazed that Mr. Morgan or the network that he shills for would ever consider promoting the thoughts of such a drug addicted moron

        @ Andre... I not sure but, I don't think Rush Limbaugh Pander's to the left ?
        As for Hypocrites, We don't have to move much further than the interviewer of mike Tyson to know how hoping defecating in other's mouth's to pander or shock is evil too?
        I'd rather live in a world full of Mike Tysons than a person like you that can't see one damn thing for what it is... evil

    I think Mike stated something very profound " no one has exclusivity to pain"

    Mike Tyson and Rachel Jeantel ( Trayvon's girlfriend ) are about equal intellectually. Why Piers Morgan imposes what they have to say upon the CNN audience is beyond me.

    I'm more surprised that the "knockout game" discussions omit the fact that they are racial hate crimes! Black on white!

    I have to show some thanks to the writer for bailing me out of such a difficulty. After looking out through the world-wide-web and finding techniques which were not beneficial, I figured my entire life was over. Existing without the answers to the difficulties you’ve fixed all through the article is a crucial case, as well as the kind that might have badly affected my career if I had not come across your blog post. Your own talents and kindness in maneuvering the whole thing was precious. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a point like this. I am able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this professional and sensible help. I will not be reluctant to recommend the blog to any person who ought to have recommendations about this area.

    certainly like your web site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I’ll certainly come back again.

    The the next occasion I just read a weblog, Hopefully that this doesnt disappoint me up to this blog. I mean, It was my replacement for read, but I personally thought youd have something fascinating to talk about. All I hear is often a couple of whining about something that you could fix when you werent too busy in search of attention.
