Mike Tyson - "Prostitute Hunter" Mike Tyson Announces Broadway Show

Mike Tyson makes his Broadway debut this year in a somewhat bizarre sounding one-man show called 'Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth' in which he'll reveal all the candid details of his infamous and often highly controversial life.
Once the youngest heavyweight World Boxing champion of all-time, Tyson's life descended rather darkly after spending time in prison for rape, infamously biting the ear of Evander Holyfield in a match a couple of years after he began re-building his boxing career. However, he insisted to the Today show recently that those days were over, saying , "I just threw up the white flag. There was too many prison cells, too many jails, too many lawsuits, too many bankruptcies, too many women, too many venereal diseases, too many everything. I got tired. I really got tired of, you know, like every time a prostitute - I would head back from a trip - I had to sleep with her. So I just said, 'I'm going to live a different life." Explaining his comment further, Tyson laughed "I'm sorry! I'm sorry! I was a prostitute hunter!"
The show makes its debut on July 31st, but Tyson has already shocked audiences in Las Vegas with tales from his career, that saw him unfortunately remembered as an unpredictably loose cannon rather than the finest boxer the world had ever seen - something that seemed a distinct possibility at one point.
