Tyson, who has previously spoken about his mental health issues, explained: “Boxing was a big platform for me to spread the word about mental health and I did my best to do that. I’ve been very vocal about my mental health struggles, especially since my return.

“There was a lot of press about my ups and downs, ups and downs, so I did my best to keep talking about it as much as possible and try to break the stigma.”
