Mike Tyson is the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the global and the first boxer to hold all three of the sport's major crowns at the same time--the WBC, WBA, and IBF world heavyweight titles. Tyson's persistent appeal has catapulted him into the entertainment industry: he starred in the hit films The Hangover and The Hangover 2, and his one-man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth has lately received critical acclaim. Tyson has established a clothing line (Mike Tyson Collection) as well as Tyrrhanic Productions, which is currently developing various film ideas. Tyson was recognized into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2011. He and his wife, Kiki, and their children live in Las Vegas.
