Recent images of Mike Tyson in a wheelchair left fans seriously concerned with his health. Last month he was seen at Miami airport unable to walk without aid, which sparked all sorts of rumors about his health condition.
‘Big Mike’ has since revealed he is suffering from sciatica and that an intense flair up was the reason for his use of the wheelchair. “I have sciatica every now and then, it flares up. When it flares up, I can’t even talk! Thank God it’s the only health problem I have. I’m splendid now”, he explained.
Sciatica is a condition which causes severe back pain when pressure is applied to nerves in the lower back. After so many professional fights, such a condition can be considered normal for someone like Tyson.
There was also concern when Mike he said on his ‘Hotboxin’ podcast that: “We’re all gonna die one day of course. Then, when I look in the mirror, I see those little spots on my face.”
However, he’s put all health concerns to bed with his latest post on social media in which he can be seen sparring with his coach. He looks like he’s back at his lethal best.
