Mike Tyson got emotional while speaking about 2Pac’s death, during a recent interview on VladTV.
Tupac was fatally shot on September 7, 1996, in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, as he was leaving Mike Tyson’s heavyweight title fight against Bruce Seldon. He was 25 years old. The shooting occurred at 11:15 p.m. Pacific Time, when the car carrying Shakur was stopped at a red light at East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane.
Shakur was struck by four .40 caliber rounds fired from a Glock: two in the chest, one in the arm, and one in the thigh. He died from his wounds six days later.
“I feel a little guilty about him coming to the fight and me pressuring him […] I was supposed to go out with him that night. I promised to go to the 662 with him that night but I just had a little baby and her mother was provoking me to stay home so I stayed home,” Tyson explained. “I know who I am, I know what my element’s about. This is just what happens in my world. That was part of my world. Just because it was 2Pac and I was attached to it, it was different.”
