Mike Tyson is happily married to his third wife, Lakiha Spicer. Here are all the details you should be know from Lakiha Spicer’s wiki.
Former boxer Mike Tyson has apparently become a writer! Mike Tyson’s latest book talks about his trainer, Constantine “Cus” D’Amato, who is famously known as “The Bible of Boxing.” In his book, Iron Ambition: Lessons I’ve Learned from the Man Who Made Me a Champion, Tyson states that Cus had a major impact in the boxer’s career. He goes on to say, “We had a lot of dreams, hopes. … Being champ of the world, that’s all that we ever thought about.” Tyson further added, “I was a smaller guy, I wasn’t going to intimidate these fighters, so I really went all out on these guys. You understand when I say I went all out on people? I was arrogant; I looked down on people, other fighters. I said, ‘No one’s ever gonna beat me. I’m the greatest fighter in the world.’”
Tyson won his first championship back in 1986, one year after his trainer died at the age of 77. Tyson now lives a low-profile life in Vegas with his third wife and kids. “My life is my family life. I don’t have no life outside of that. I don’t have no night life, that’s over,” said Tyson. Keep reading for more about Mike Tyson’s wife!

Mike Tyson and Lakiha Spicer’s Love Story
Spicer met Tyson when she was just 18 years old. Her father, Shamsud-din Ali, was a prominent Muslim cleric in Philadelphia. He knew promoter Don King and took his daughter to boxing events. When Spicer turned 23 and was in New York, she and Mike Tyson started casually dating. Their on-again off-again relationship took a toll on Spicer, who said, “I could never really get him out of my system. I would try and then we would get back with each other. He’s the only person I was ever able to fall back in love with several times. Usually when I’m done with someone I’m over it. I’d think I’d have him out of my system and then we’d start talking again and it was just on again.”
Tyson married Spicer less than two weeks after the accidental death of his 4-year-old daughter, Exodus, whom he had with an ex-girlfriend, Sol Xochitl. They tied the knot in 2009 in a Las Vegas chapel.
About their relationship, Mike Tyson said, “I’m very happy me and my wife got together, because I don’t know how I would have survived out there.” The couple have two kids together, Milan and Morocco Tyson.
