The little one makes the joy of his father who says of him that he is “such a sweet and calm baby”. A little boy who will heal the heart of the boxer, bruised by the death of his daughter Exodus, four years old, in May 2009.
The little girl, who was playing in the family home gym, had fallen and got her neck caught in a rope attached to a treadmill. Her 7-year-old brother, at that time, found her and called for help, but Exodus, unfortunately, did not survive. Ten days after the tragedy, Mike Tyson and Lakiha Spicer got married in the strictest privacy, in Las Vegas, just the two of them.
