On the outside looking in, it seems like Mike Tyson is doing well. He's on the verge of a new career as a boxing promoter, and has lost more than 100 pounds since tipping the scale at 380 at his unhealthiest point. During a press conference at the Turning Stone Resort in central New York, however, Tyson revealed he's still battling drug and alcohol addiction, and his condition may be worse than ever.

'I'm a bad guy sometimes. I did a lot of bad things, and I want to be forgiven. So in order for me to be forgiven, I hope they can forgive me. I wanna change my life, I wanna live a different life now. I wanna live my sober life. I don't wanna die. I'm on the verge of dying, because I'm a vicious alcoholic.

I haven't drank or took drugs in six days, and for me that's a miracle. I've been lying to everybody else that think I was sober, but I'm not. This is my sixth day. I'm never gonna use again.'
