Prepare yourself Twin Cities, Mike Tyson is coming

In his prime, he was a vicious, demonstrative, crusher of man.

Since retiring from boxing, Mike Tyson has, at least on the surface, mellowed.

He has a Broadway show, Undisputed Truth, which is based off his memoir titled the same. He's done national tours of the one-man show, worked with HBO, and runs Iron Mike Promotions, which is what will bring him to the Twin Cities.

Tyson is promoting a Jan. 3rd boxing card that will feature Osseo native Caleb Truax taking on Derek Ennis, and Argenis Mendez fighting Rances Barthelemy in a super featherweight title fight.

Sounds like Tyson is excited about Truax in particular.

The card will be the season premiere for ESPN's Friday Night Fights, and will take place at, you guessed it, Target Center.

Tyson's name power is expected to draw more than five thousand into the downtown Minneapolis arena on the 3rd, with Tyson arriving a few days earlier to promote the fight around town.

Despite putting his skull-pounding days behind him, Tyson still knows how to talk with the best, or worst of them, as this Pioneer Press piece shows us.
