Mike Tyson didn’t move very well this week when he was in New York City — he needed a cane to get around — but TMZ Sports has learned that the boxing legend is unscathed and just dealing with some normal wear and tear issues.
Iron Mike raised some eyebrows on Tuesday — when fans and photographers caught him walking from a car to his hotel room.
The 56-year-old appeared to have a severe limp and used a walking stick for support.
But sources close to Mike tell us he hasn’t sustained any new injuries — and that he’s just sort of solving an old problem.
“He’s dealing with a flare-up of sciatica,” our sources tell us. ‘Nothing serious. Just an occupational hazard for an athlete like Mike.’
It’s great news – especially when you consider that Mike said on his “Hotboxin'” podcast a few days ago that “my due date is getting close very soon.”
Hopefully not in the near future, because the world needs you, Mike!!!
