Boxing legend "Iron" Mike Tyson did an interview with conservative news station Newsmax over the weekend. During the interview, Tyson talked about a gradual shift in his political views.
The former heavyweight champ was hesitant to talk politics at first.
“Listen if I start talking politics, my friends are not going to like me,” Tyson said. “Hey, let’s just not do that, okay? Let’s just not do that.
“My family gets mad, my friends get mad when we talk politics.”
Newsmax host Greta Van Susteren was able to get him to open up a bit about his political stances.
“Now listen, when I was younger, I was all-out liberal,” Tyson said. “But as I get older and I look at my children and I see what’s out in the world, I get a little conservative.”

After he admitted he's becoming a bit conservative, the took things a bit further.
“It’s common sense, looking at the world at the stage it’s in right now,” Tyson said. “You want safety.”
When it was mentioned that Tyson moved to Florida, home of Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump, Tyson wouldn't go any further.
“Hey listen, I can’t name...I can’t talk about no politicians,” Tyson said. “It’s just last time I put my hat in the arena and gave my opinion, wow, did they give me a beating.”
The host expressed disbelief that anyone could give Mike Tyson a beating.
“I’m gonna stay away from politics and religion,” Tyson said. “They stole my freedom of speech.”
