Tyson To Do It For Money?

In 2002, it seemed as though Mike Tyson's career was over. Thanks to his rape conviction, a taste for Evander Holyfield's ear, and other unsavory stuff, the Nevada Boxing Commission refused to license Iron Mike to fight. As a result, he had to come all the way to Memphis to get his bell rung by Lennox Lewis. Now the former heavyweight champ is looking to make a major career shift.

According to MemphisRap.com Tyson has been tapped to be the (um) big attraction at Heidi's Stud Farm, a 60-acre brothel for women in Pahrump, Nevada, operated by Hollywood madame Heidi Fleiss.

If, for some reason, Tyson is barred from (um) performing in Nevada, long-time operators of the Pyramid say a concert or other major event is being considered for some time in February.
