Mike Tyson Talks 'Prostitute Hunting' on “Today”

Posted Tuesday June 19, 2012 3:26 PM GMT

He’s had quite the crazy life, from boxing to legal woes, and Mike Tyson is ready to tell all in a new Broadway show.

The former Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World was joined by director Spike Lee for an interview on the “Today” show this morning (June 19) regarding the new production “Mike Tyson: The Undisputed Truth.”

Things got off to a rocky start when Ann Curry welcomed Tyson to the show for the first time. Mike replied, “No I’ve been here before with Bryant Gumbel in 1985-86. I’ve been here for awhile. You’re not going to throw me under the bus.”

From there, it was even more strange as Tyson answered Curry’s question about his vegan diet by going off on a rabbit trail regarding venereal diseases and being a ‘prostitute hunter.’
