Tyson “gushed” about how much of a fan he was of hers, telling her “how beautiful I was,” and asking her on a date.

The two spoke on the phone constantly, and just before his big fight — which, if he won, would have made him the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history — Johnson blurted out, surprising even herself, “If you win, I’ll give you some.” Tyson won, and showed up at Johnson’s door 19 hours later, an impressive feat considering that the fight was in Las Vegas and Johnson lived in New York. “Our first time together was nice, if not the most passionate of nights I’d experienced with a man,” she writes.

But underneath that glamour, Johnson battled demons outside and in, especially from the men in her life — including, one night, Bill Cosby.
