The former world heavyweight champion described his daughter’s death as a "dark moment in my life".

Tyson’s daughter Exodus died in May after choking on a power cord hanging down from a running treadmill at her mother’s home in Phoenix, Arizona.

The boxer rushed to his daughter’s bedside from his Las Vegas home after she was placed on a life support system, but doctors were unable to save her.

Tyson, who has seven children by three different women, said Exodus’s death had left him in "denial".

"I am working with dealing with it. I have spoken to a lot of people. I have become a member of an exclusive club no one wants to join," Tyson said.

"I have been told the pain never stops but you get over it. I am going through a process, trying to heal. I am in denial, because I don’t know how to handle it. I don’t know what to do or say. I appreciate everybody who supported me."
