David Blaine - Nothing to Lose

David Blaine explains how he became fearless after the death of his mother and how he met Mike Tyson.

I think also at that point that's when I became fearless because at that point I felt like I had nothing to lose. When I was 19, I was at the airport and my bag was missing. I saw a whole bunch of identical bags coming out, and there was all these guys dressed in identical jumpers and I was like, "I think you guys have one of my bags because I have the exact same bag." It was a toolie bag. They said, "Go ask him. Knock on the window."

Along the way he says to me, he says, "You know, I wasn't supposed to be the heavy weight champ." He's like, "I wasn't tall enough, I didn't have long arms." He's like, "But I had nothing to lose, and when you have nothing to lose, you have everything to gain.
