Mike Tyson: ‘I Was A Prostitute Hunter’

By Radar Staff

Say what you will about Mike Tyson — it’s not as if he won’t say it himself.

The boxing icon, promoting his one-man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, appeared on The Today Show Tuesday alongside the show’s director Spike Lee, didn’t hold back much about his wilder days.

The humorous Tyson, 45, said he’ll be happy to talk about the good old days in his Broadway show, despite his current — much-mellower — incarnation.

Asked by Ann Curry what made him want to turn a new leaf, the one-time ear-biter said he “just threw up the white flag” at the hijinks after nearly drowning in troubles of his own doing.
