Mike Tyson "irritated" during Sky News interview, denies return

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Above is a clip of Mike Tyson interviewed by Dermot Murnaghan of Sky News, with Tyson getting "irritated" by the same old questions about things he said over a decade ago. In the same interview, Tyson denied the rumors that he was considering a ring return of any sport. He says he has no interest.

To be honest, I think Tyson's re-found fame might be getting to him. I mean he's been everywhere in the last 18 months or so, from the documentary film to The Hangover to two appearances in one week on Oprah, and everywhere he goes he's grilled about the same stupid statements he made ages ago. He has to constantly go, "Yeah, I sure am a changed person, aren't I? Yeah, I said those things. Yeah, I did that. Yeah, I went to jail. Yeah, I bit Evander. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. But now, no, I'm different."
