Mike Tyson Feels Comfortable in His New Confinement

Mike Tyson has gone back to rehab after a stint in an Arizona prison camp - and he’s feeling rather comfortable in his new confinement.

The former heavyweight champion went from his 24-hour jail stay in Arizona for cocaine possession to the Wonderland Center rehab facility.

Tyson's lawyer said recent photos of the former boxer in his pink socks and jailhouse stripes – after being trotted before photographers by Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio – was absolutely "appalling." Tyson, however, has kept quiet about the whole thing.

"He's not going to complain about anything now,” the New York Daily quoted director James Toback, who for the past year has been interviewing Tyson for a major documentary, as saying.

"It's part of his rehabilitation not to blame anyone. In my film, the only person he still complains about is Don King," he added.

Although the 41-year old former boxer has completed his stint in rehab, he feels most secure at the Wonderland Center, where he has spent a year before.

"He's in great shape. He's become a kind of inspirational star on the AA circuit. But he wants to continue the program," Toback said.
