Former professional boxer Mike Tyson says he was sexually abused by an older man as a child reports TVGuide.

In an interview with Opie Radio this week, Tyson said that at age 7, an older man "bullied me, sexually abused me and stuff ... snatched me off the street." Tyson, 48, claims he ran away and never saw the man again.

The former boxing champ never reported the abuse, which he says only happened once. "It's nobody's business to know," he said during the interview.

Tyson was doing the interview to promote his new show "Mike Tyson Mysteries."

In 1992, Tyson himself was convicted of raping a woman and was sentenced to six years in prison. He was released in 1995.
