London, Mar 31 (ANI): Boxing legend Mike Tyson has lashed out at his sex attack victim by branding her “that wretched swine of a woman”.

In a 90-minute documentary, the 42-year-old boxer revealed his life story from growing up as a drug dealer to becoming a boxing legend.

He was convicted in 1992 after being found guilty of raping Desiree, then 18, in an Indiana hotel room.

“When I was falsely accused of raping that wretched swine of a woman Desiree Washington, it was the most horrible time of my life,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying in the documentary.

“It was the most heinous day of my life because going to prison I lost my humanity, I lost my reputation and everything I worked so hard for.

“I’ve done no such thing as take that woman’s chastity at all.

“I have to be honest - I’m a jerk sometimes and I say some things that are crass and coarse - but I would never do nothing to that extent.

“I may have taken advantage of a woman before, but I have never taken advantage of her.

“I don’t know what to say about that situation. It just basically took the life out of me. I never again trusted anybody,” he added. (ANI)
