Tyson had specific requirements if people wanted to join his legendary entourage

Boxing legend Mike Tyson has detailed what he wants from people who are part of his entourage, explaining they need to have a "purpose" or "what the f*** they in your life for?".

Speaking to former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens on his 'Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson' podcast, the former world heavyweight champion said he likes to surround himself with people who help him "make this a better situation".

Tyson said: "If people in your life and they don’t have a purpose, what the f*** they in your life for?

"Anybody can be on the corner and say, 'Hey Mike, do this, do that'. But who's gonna suffer? Who's going to make this a better situation?

"I'm champ and I got money, what are you going to do to make this situation better?

"I'm a champ and I got all this money. I got 50million, say 50million, and I'm a young guy, 19 years old, what are you going to do to make this clan better?

"This situation I'm in, young n***a with a bunch of millions. How are you going to make it better? What are you going to do?

"That's my thing, when I'm in somewhere and I see a room and the room's dirty, I start cleaning the room.

"I want to do whatever I can to make this a better situation."

Tyson returned to the ring last year to face Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout and he has since said that he will take on Lennox Lewis in September, after a trilogy fight with Evander Holyfield fell through.
