During an episode of Tyson’s podcast, Eminem asked Tyson if he felt nervous before any of his big fights. Hence, Tyson stated:

I’m not nervous, I’m scared, because I am a scary guy. Because I've been picked up my entire life. I’ve been abused my entire life.

Tyson revealed to Eminem that he would never be anxious or nervous before a fight but would feel scared. However, Tyson would not feel scared of himself but rather of his opponent, whom he was going to fight. This was mostly because Tyson had a rough childhood and upbringing, making him dangerous.

Furthermore, Tyson stated that living under such harsh circumstances makes a person want to protect themselves. Subsequently, it can also make a person sadistic, and Tyson believed he was sadistic, which made him scared of his opponents.
