MIKE TYSON has claimed he got a prison worker PREGNANT while he was in jail for rape.
The American’s boxing career came to a juddering halt in 1992 when he was sentenced to six years in prison after being convicted of rape in Indiana.
But he was released in 1995 after serving less than three years of his sentence.
Now Tyson, who is making a return to boxing at the age of 54 to fight Roy Jones Jr in November, has opened up on life behind bars.
And in an episode of Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson, he told presenter Jim Gray how he ‘had a ball’ inside.
He said: “I thought that this was the worst thing that could happen to a human being.”
He described how he felt ‘safe and secure’ locked up.
Tyson then went on to explain a sexual encounter he had in jail with a woman ‘who worked there’.
He added: “I had a girlfriend and I got a girl pregnant in prison. I was living a life in prison.
“It was just meant to be. I was Mike Tyson and everybody gave me what I wanted.
“Everyone talking like I was some tough guy or some cool guy. I was just a pig.”
SunSport previously reported how Tyson received prison visits from rap royalty Tupac and once hit a fellow inmate while ‘upset and miserable’ behind bars.
He told rapper TI: “The guards didn’t like him, the inmates got rowdy and pumped up when he came which is a safety concern.
“He was a bolt of energy there. When he came in everybody knew him, he had mad respect. That’s how he lived his life, he had mad respect.”
In prison Tyson converted to Islam and used the jail gym to prepare for his boxing comeback.
That came in 1995 when he defeated Peter McNeilly by DQ after his opponent’s manager Vinny Vecchione entered the ring.
