I don't feel sorry for a lot of people, but Tyson's really had a shitty life. From the time he was born, he's been in a shitty situation. He never really knew his father, his mother died when he was a teen and the best influence he's had, Cus D'Amato, died just as he was hitting stardom. He was thrust into the spotlight and was preyed upon by thieves and vultures like Don King.
Just like most people, his kids changed his life. For him to lose the most important thing in his life is a damn shame.
