Former heavyweight champion "Iron Mike" Tyson reveals he was having too much sex in prison in his new autobiography, "Undisputed Truth."

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.

Will Gennady Golovkin Keep His KO Streak Alive vs Resilient Marco Antonio Rubio?

Oct 14 2014 4:43pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

WBA and IBO middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin has knocked out 17 opponents in a row. To put that in perspective, Mike Tyson opened his career by knocking out 19 fighters in a row, none of which were as skilled or as accomplished as Golovkin’s last seven. Like Tyson was in the 1980s, Golovkin has become the scariest man on the planet. Golovkin’s power and skill level are unrivaled at 160 pounds, and he appears to be a fighter destined for big ...

Alexander Povetkin has had a winding pro career, and with a loss to Wladimir Klitschko behind him, it's pretty wide open from here. Alexander Povetkin was once hoped to be a potential serious Klitschko challenger, but it hasn't worked out that way.

WWE Is Wasting Its Time with Low-Level Celebrities

Oct 7 2014 12:09pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

WWE trotted out Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford as special guests on Monday's Raw for a segment that was exciting as soggy bread. Don't blame Hoda and Kathie Lee from Today. Blame WWE. The company's attempts to generate press and buzz via celebrities aren't effective when they involve folks the audience just doesn't care about. Asking Muhammad Ali, Mr. T (in the '80s when he was red-hot) and Mike Tyson to step between the ropes is one th ...

Looking back into history for some context on the Romero-Kennedy controversy One of the bigger controversies to come out of last weekend's UFC was "Stoolgate", where Tim Kennedy mounted a huge comeback against Yoel Romero, staggering the Cuban with a barrage of uppercuts at the very end of the second round. What happened next was strange. After Romero sat on his stool, the UFC cutman applied ...

How Has Floyd Mayweather Managed To Avoid All The Domestic Violence Scrutiny In Sports?

Oct 2 2014 3:11pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Amusing: the video below of Floyd Mayweather arguing with a young woman in a London barber shop on Tuesday (see below). Not so amusing: Mayweather’s insanely long rap sheet of violence against women. In a time when domestic violence issues are in the news daily and Roger Goodell is producing flop sweat by the bucketful, why is Mayweather even allowed to box? And why isn’t he getting more shit from women? I’d like to think that this woman wa ...
