While exodus was at home at in Phoenix on Sunday afternoon, she somehow caught her neck in a rope connected to a treadmill and was found close to death by her brother 7 year old brother.
The little girl was given CPR when medical assistance arrived, following a 911 call by her mother, but 24 hours later, after being on a life support machine, Exodus was pronounced dead.
The two children were raised in a starkly different area to that normally associated with the world class boxer, who, at the height of his career had earned $140 million.
Tyson’s life has been peppered with problems and trouble since he first began boxing in a facility for juvenile delinquents in upstate New York at the age of 12. As boxing became his chosen career, eight years later, he became the youngest heavyweight champion ever when he knocked out Trevor Berbick in 1986. But in following his knockout in 1990, by James “Buster” Douglas in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history, he was convicted of raping a beauty pageant contestant in Indianapolis, for which he served three years in prison. A short time later, he served three months in jail for beating up two men after a minor car crash in suburban Washington.
His bad temper was not confined to outside the ring as in a boxing contest with Evander Holyfield, he bit off a piece of Holyfield’s ear and once threatened to eat the children of heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis.
Other incidences that have left a lasting effect on the legacy of the boxer are the jail time he was given in 2007 after being found guilty of one count of cocaine possession and one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of alcohol.
Tyson has six children, Gena, Mikey, Rayna, Amir, Miguel, and Exodus. Rayna and Amir are from his second wife, Monica Turner, whom he married after the collapse of his marriage to Playboy model and actress, Robin Givens, and it is documented that the rest of his children are from several different women
