Mike Tyson discusses his time in prison.
PAGE 7
After his divorce from Robin, Mike's life began to fall apart. He lost his first fight in 1990, and in 1992, he was convicted of rape and served three years in prison.

Upon his release, Mike says he was a changed man. He was more disturbed and angry.

"[Prison] wasn't a good place for me. I don't think I should have been there," he says. "I don't know who the guy in prison was, you know. That's a place where you have no boundaries. You're restricted, but you lose your moral fiber."

Mike says he also lost his faith in God when he was first incarcerated. "[It's] very easy because there's nothing in there but hate reflecting off the walls," he says. "Hate reflecting. Hate. Hate. Hate. I hate you."
