They say we're bound to have several different careers within our lifetime - but MIKE TYSON has really turned 180 degrees with his next career choice.
The former boxing World Heavyweight Champion said plans for a new gig as a porn star are in the works.
"I've talked to some people, I just talked to a gentleman named Jimmy, whose involved with Club Jenna, you know Jenna Jameson," Tyson said in a recent interview with boxingtalk.com. "They said they were interested in getting me involved in that kind of business as well."
He lamented over his financial woes, and said he'd rather star in an adult film than a reality show.
"If $100,000 is the most they could pay up front for (starring in a reality show), that's not for me. I need different business than that," he said.
After years of financial struggles, TYSON filed for bankruptcy in August 1993. His bank balance was said have been only $5,000.
Tyson was sentenced to six years in prison in 1992 on rape charges. He served three years.
