Former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson appears on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” today  to talk about the death of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus, who he lost just five months ago, according to People.com.

Tyson says he is still unclear about how exactly his daughter died and he prefers it that way. Without knowing the full story, he won’t be able to lay blame at anyone’s door.

Exodus was found dead by her 7-year-old brother, lying unconscious after she got tangled in a cord dangling from treadmill at her mother’s home.

Tyson also talks about how he has found a way to trade in his hot temper for more positive ways when reacting to life’s tragic events.—WLW
