Boxing legend Mike Tyson is teaching his children to adopt an anti-violent stance and "walk away" from disputes after successfully turning his own turbulent life around.

Tyson became notorious for his short temper during his career and will forever be remembered for biting off a piece of Evander Holyfield's ear during a heavyweight title fight in 1997.

But Tyson has left his violent past behind him since retiring from the ring in 2005 and he is keen to be a good role model for his five children by warning them off engaging in any kind of fight.

He says, "What am I gonna tell my son when a bully picks on him? (I used to say), 'Stand up for yourself.' But now I say, 'Forget about that, don't even fight.' Normally I would say stand up for yourself. Don't even stand up for yourself! Just walk away."
