“He was very happy after the fight,” Tyson said during the interview while dabbing away tears.

“He came to a press conference with me. We was just talking a bunch of s–t. I went home and then he left.”

Tyson said “I was home sleeping,” when he found out about the shooting but was unable to visit his friend in the hospital.

“They wouldn’t let me see him,” he added.

“Man, it’s very difficult to talk about,” he said. “Just a young kid that wanted to be great and then that happened.”
