Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson says he had too much sex in prison.

This was what Tyson reveals in his brand-new autobiography, "Undisputed Truth." The book comes on the heels of his one-man Broadway act and an HBO special directed by Spike Lee which will air on Nov. 16. 

The sex is detailed, with numerous women involved. The surprising part is that Tyson was having too much of it in prison, after he allegedly raped former Miss America contestant Desiree Washington. One of his partners was reportedly a prison drug counselor. 

Tyson said,"I was having too much sex that I was too tired to even go to the gym and work out. I'd just stay in my cell all day." 

Of the rape charge, he quips,"How do you rape someone when they come to your hotel room at two in the morning?"

The Associated Press offers a take on how Tyson's masterpiece was written. 

"The book is Tyson's voice but written by Larry Sloman offers a fascinating look into a life that up until now had already been well chronicled. It's raw, and so profane that Tyson needs to explain some of the terms he uses for women and blacks in a separate chapter at the end.

"But it is also quite funny in parts, like the time Tyson forgot about a suitcase that contained $1 million in cash, only to have one of his go-fers find it a week later." 

Among the other startling revelations include:

-- Tyson fantasizing about "blowing somebody's brains out"

-- Him labeling his first wife Robin Givens "a manipulative shrew"

-- Evander Holyfield as "a serial head butter" with ties to steroids

-- Late referee Mitch Halpern as drunk when he first fought Holyfield in 1996

In August, Tyson confessed during a press conference after the Argenis Mendez-Arash Usmanee IBF junior lightweight fight that he was "on the verge of dying because I'm a vicious alcoholic." 

In spite of his struggles in life, he has managed to rebound this year by becoming a boxing promoter and establishing Iron Mike Productions. 

"Undisputed Truth's" hardcover edition sells for $19.77 and will be released on Nov. 12.
