The first things that come to mind when you think of Mike Tyson are his vicious fighting style and his infamous reputation.
The former Heavyweight Champion also has a podcast—did you know that? The unfiltered style of “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson” frequently results in unexpected and humorous situations, as Tyson converses with guests from many walks of life.
The conversation between Mike Tyson and Tommy Davidson
During a recent episode of “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson,” comedian and actor Tommy Davidson was the guest, and he revealed something unexpected to Tyson and his daughter Milan. When Milan asked Davidson what he was up to, he replied, “Uhh, the proud family is number one.” Confused, Mike Tyson asked, “What?” Davidson clarified, “The proud family, my current deal.”
It was then that Tyson realized that Tommy Davidson was the voice of Oscar Proud on “The Proud Family,” an animated sitcom that aired on the Disney Channel. Astonished, Tyson turned to his daughter and asked, “You listen to that sh*t? You listen to that for real?” Davidson proceeded to do his impression of Oscar Proud, saying “GOOD DAY, WHERE YOU AT, SUGAR MAMA.”
Mike Tyson’s parenting advice to Kamaru Usman
Mike Tyson’s usual warning to his daughter was revealed during his conversation with Kamaru Usman on Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson. Kamaru Usman talked about his daughter’s unique quirk of always needing to get the last hit and how he wants to observe more as a father instead of screaming and shouting.
Tyson related to this on a personal level and shared his own experience with his daughter, saying that he warns her against constantly wanting to fight as it could cause problems in finding a partner. Both Tyson and Usman agreed that they want their children to find their own paths at their own pace, without going through the same struggles they faced.
