“I look forward to paying my taxes. … I know that they say that’s legal extortion, but I’m living in this country, and if I have to pay taxes — that’s the money I paid for my life on Earth,” former boxer Mike Tyson said on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Monday morning.

“My wife, my family — I got one of the biggest liberal families in the world, but I had more money when Bush and Reagan was president. My wife is going to kill me for that one,” he added with a laugh.

“Bush and Reagan had this idea that you should keep your money,” Fox host Brian Kilmeade said.

“Yeah, I like that to work for me. I like that one. I’m going to work on that, too, with this Obama administration, hoping this Obamacare helps us keep some money,” Tyson said.

Tyson owes “millions” in back taxes, according to Politico, and is working to pay them off, promoting his new show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.”
