Yes, this is actually happening…

Mike Tyson was once the baddest man on the planet. Now he'll be circling the planet as a self-titled ambassador to spread the gospel of boxing to the Chinese… (obviously)

Here are some encouraging tidbits:


"I didn't even know what an ambassador really was," Tyson said Thursday. "When I think of ambassadors I think of living off government money and jet-setting with girlfriends."

"I know he wants to see Chairman Mao's body," said Gary Yang, an executive with Tianjin International Sports Development in China.

"I'm just as clueless as you," Tyson said. "But I'm an ambassador so I should have some say."


Encouraging stuff.  If you need more proof he's the right man for the job, lets take a stroll down memory lane. Good Luck, China!

    Well, they both have odd taste in food… Mike likes to eat ears and the Chinese eat cats/dogs/etc. I think they’re the perfect couple.
