A much-feared mob boss who once ruled Philadelphia’s Italian Mafia was the most viral moment in a recent episode of Mike Tyson’s weekly ‘Hotboxin’ podcast.
The 53-year-old boxer sat down with former Mafia captain Michael Franzese to discuss a wide range of topics, including family life, and growing up in Brooklyn.

Mike Tyson obviously knows a thing or two about the Mob. From the age of 13, he was raised by Cus D’Amato, an Italian guy from the Bronx, who was involved with plenty of underworld figures who had their fingers in boxing.
In his first autobiography, ‘Undisputed Truth,’ Tyson defends the Mob and admits to meeting Anthony (Fat Tony) Salerno, the rough-talking, cigar-chomping boss of the Genovese crime family.
But Nicky Scarfo was an entirely different kettle of fish and Mike Tyson wants to know more. “What about Scarfo, were you friends with those guys?”
