Mike Tyson suggests kids to 'walk away' from bullies

Posted By: Staff

London, May 10 (ANI): Boxing legend Mike Tyson is preaching his children to adopt an anti-violent stance and "walk away" from fights after successfully turning his own chaotic life around.

The sporting icon became notorious for his short temper, especially when he bit off a piece of Evander Holyfield's ear during a heavyweight title fight in 1997.

But post-retirement in 2005, he is trying to be a role model for his five children by advising them to steer clear of any kind of fight.

"What am I gonna tell my son when a bully picks on him? (I used to say), 'Stand up for yourself.' But now I say, 'Forget about that, don't even fight.' Normally I would say stand up for yourself. Don't even stand up for yourself! Just walk away," The Daily Star quoted Tyson as saying. (ANI)
