The boxing ring brought him fame and fortune. Now, Mike Tyson hopes the cabaret stage will follow suit. Not that the former world heavyweight champion does much dancing: he spends two hours recounting the highs and lows of his tumultuous life.
Tyson declared himself broke in 2003 and was out of the public eye until recent years when he appeared in a film series and reality TV shows.
Now, after his cabaret debut at a small Las Vegas theatre, he has his eyes set on Broadway and London’s West End.
Will he, we wonder, still have enough fans to go round? Or will he be counted out?
