Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight boxing champion of the world, reveals some startling quotes in a new autobiography entitled Undisputed Truth, which is slated to hit shelves Nov. 12.In the book, Tyson provides some troubling insight on his current life, which includes constant battles with inner demons and temptations such as drugs, women, alcohol, and even himself.Here are three of the more notable quotes from Tyson:"Sometimes I just fantasize about blowing somebody's brains out so I can go to prison for the rest of my life."In reference to the rape conviction that landed him in prison for three years during the prime of his career, Tyson claims he was still sexually active while behind bars, luring visitors and drug counselors:"I was having so much sex that I was too tired to even go to the gym and work out."In reference to boxing promoter Don King:"When I think about all the horrific things that Don has done to me over the years I still feel like killing him."Whoa. Tyson is clearly a tormented and angry soul.Of course, Tyson has already made headlines multiple times this year, namely when he said that he was "on the verge of dying" back in August.Tyson is also slated to appear in a Spike Lee-directed HBO special on Nov. 16.Via USA Today
