Slim, Articulate and Even-Keeled Mike Tyson Talks New One-Man Show [VIDEO]


(“It’s actually a Robin Givens voodoo bear.”)

Mike Tyson is one of, if not THE most polarizing figure in combat sport history, which makes his upcoming one-man show something we’re very interested in seeing.

Regardless of what you think about the once dominant and troubled former boxing champ, you can’t deny that he is an interesting person to listen to talk.

What’s amazing is that Tyson, unlike a lot of his counterparts, has actually become a much more thoughtful, articulate and seemingly more intelligent person through his self-education and quest for personal betterment after his retirement. Part of that stems from the fact that he didn’t incur much head trauma during his career as he was typically the one inflicting it, but the biggest factor in Tyson’s turnaround is maturity and the influence his wife and family had on his life.

According to “Iron Mike,” the introspective show will focus on anecdotes and stories from his life and will include the good, the bad and the ugly including his tumultuous relationships with Don King and Robin Givens and the infamous ear-biting incident in his fight with Evander Holyfield.

Check out an interview the healthy-looking Tyson did with USA Today about the upcoming show below:

I was waiting for a show like this, Tyson is a professor of fighting. At the end when he described today's boxers as fighters who are looking to protect their record not fighting to win, all i could think about was Team Jackson.

No it's not crack, he went Vegan a few years back and that's what a lack of meat in your diet will do to you.
