Boxing legend Mike Tyson has revealed his emptiness over no longer being considered "the baddest man on the planet".
The former heavyweight king broke down in tears on his Hotboxin' podcast, when speaking to fellow great Sugar Ray Leonard.
The interview became highly emotional, when the two discussed their respective retirements from the ring.
Tyson admitted his transition from boxer to spectator left him feeling 'empty' as a human being .
"I'm a f***ing student of war," Tyson told Leonard. "That's why I'm so feared, that's why they feared me when I was in the ring.
"I was an annihilator - it's all I was born for. Now those days are gone.
"It's empty, I'm nothing. I'm working on the art of humbleness.
"That's the reason I'm crying, because I'm not that person no more and I miss him."
Tyson remains the youngest heavyweight champion of all time, knocking out Trevor Berbick for the WBC title at age 19 in 1986.
By 1988, he became the undisputed heavyweight champion, after a first-round demolition of Michael Spinks.
The power-puncher dominated the division for two more years, until suffering a shock loss to James 'Buster' Douglas in 1990.
He regained the WBC and WBA titles in 1996, after serving four years in prison for sexual assault.
But his career decline began with an 11th-round knockout loss to Evander Holyfield later that year - just the second of his career.
Tyson would only win five of his final 11 fights, before retiring in 2005.
Speaking through his tears, Tyson, who finished his career with a 50-6 professional record, admitted his tough-guy image still haunted him.
"Sometimes I feel like a b***h, because I don't want that person to come out, because if he comes out, hell is coming with him," he said.
"And it's not funny at all. I sound cool, like I'm a tough guy... I hate that guy.
"I'm scared of him."
