Former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has expressed regret at keeping tigers as pets.

Tyson opened up on the polarising subject as the series Tiger King  continues to be Netflix’s main attraction.

The seven-part documentary series is based on the demise of Joseph Maldonado-Passage, also known as “Joe Exotic”, the eponymous Oklahoman “Tiger King” currently serving a prison sentence on two counts of murder for hire.

It’s brought some home truths to Tyson who has been in a particularly reflective mood lately.
