Mike Tyson's daughter, Exodus, passed away in a tragic accident at the end of May, and now the boxing champ is opening up about her death, and how's he's dealing with the loss. "I really was beating myself up over my daughter," he tells Entertainment Tonight.

"I was staying in the house, depressed; it was a dark moment in my life. Acting keeps me functioning as a healthy human being," he adds. Mike is part of a new FOX series, Brothers.

Mike says he's continuing to cope with the reality that he's a parent who lost a child. Four-year-old Exodus passed away after becoming entangled in a treadmill cord.

"I am working with dealing with it. I have spoken to a lot of people. I have become a member of an exclusive club no one wants to join," he confesses. "I have been told the pain never stops but you get over it. I am going through a process, trying to heal. I am in denial, because I don't know how to handle it. I don't know what to do or say. I appreciate everybody who supported me."
