Tyson is regarded as one of the greatest boxers ever considering his achievements in the game before he hanged his gloves in the year 2005.

However, his career years back was surrounded with lot of controversies which got him into troubles and also being jailed.

In 1991, Mike Tyson had serious issues which forced the police to arrest him and was subsequently sentenced to prison.

Tyson pleaded innocence then, but the judges in charge of his case rubbished his pleas and handed him six-year prison term.

However, Mike Tyson only spent three in jail before he was released in what was a surprise to many then.

According to the report on GMS and Guardian, Mike Tyson explained that he had to date a female councillor in the prison who later helped him to pass his test.

“I got in trouble like the first six months and stuff, cursing, getting written up. And then by that time, I got the hang of the place.
''So I had to start dating this counsellor and stuff, giving her money and doing really some nasty stuff to her, and she let me pass this test.”
