CHICAGO - Mike Tyson was in Chicago visiting an old friend when he was asked about the Dancing With The Stars rumor.
The former world boxing champion, responded by saying that he wants to join the celebrity cast on the upcoming season.
He was asked by Sporting Chance Magazine's Hercules Confetti what made him decide to want to appear on the dancing show.
Iron Mike flexed his biceps and replied that he wants to show the world that he is not only a great boxer, but he can be a fantastic dancer as well.
He said that if Warren Sapp can do it so can he. Tyson then added that he really needs the money bad since his ex-wife Robin "The Leech" Givens and her mama the Mama Leech took just about all of it when he divorced her.
Mike explained that he could have taken all of his money and run off to Switzerland but he pointed out that he hates snow, wooden shoes, and yodeling.
