How Is Mike Tyson In Person????
 
I know this is probably the wrong section but i know that the other and non sports sections dont get much action so i figured i would post here.

Does anyone know how Mike Tyson is in person?

His Broadway show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" is being played at a local casino this upcoming weekend and would like to know if it is worth going early and trying to snag a few autos.

Also, if the showing is at 9, does anyone know a good time to show up for when he is coming in?

any of these question's answers would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

I heard at the boxing hall of fame that he would not touch a pen, but would do a photo. I was not there but that came from a few of my friends who are celebrity autograph hounds.

Don't Let him near your ear :o

Only kidding :)

But as for IP's I wouldn't know too much, but good luck!

I hung out with Tyson at a club in LA for about 4 hours. Bought our drinks all night and gave us his limo to get back to our hotel! He was surprisingly friendly and also hilarious.

He's really tough in person. He can be really cool at paid signings though (doing one for $60 per soon BTW)

he was very pleasant to me and my buddy at a recent show in long island. even took time for a photo op!!

I met Mike Tyson when I set up a few tables in Chantilly Va. in October 2011. When I got to the front of the line for him to sign my baseball, I told him
"Your the best heavyweight champ ever, Mr Tyson", as I handed him my ball
"Call me Mike, please"
"O.K, your the best, Mike"
"Thanks, whats your name?"
"Johnny"
"What am I writing under here, Johnny?"..
"Can you write I love N.Y under your name, Mike?".
He said sure and laughed.

"Do you love New York, Mike?"

"Not on Tax day Johnny"

I thought that was pretty cool...and he was more than cordial.

sounds like all of these are paid signings but they are still positive responses. i think i may take a shot with some gloves and try to get them signed. Anyone have an idea on a time if it starts at 9

First time meeting him was completely random. I was in Barcelona on vacation and happened to see him at a coffee house. I decided to introduce myself and my buddy and I ended up joining him at his table (he was by himself) and chatting for a good 45 minutes. Growing up a boxing fan in the 80's, there was no one (other than Ali) I would have rather met.

One of my favorite items I have in my mancave is a item signed by Iron Mike when I met him at another location. He was a nice very guy from my experience.

Picture has all the characters from Mike Tysons Punchout in the back ground :D

Saw the second night of the debut of his show at the MGM Grand here in Vegas. Dana White and Vince Neil and a few other notables (boxers) were couple rows in front of us. It was a really really good show. Mike brings the funny!! As far as getting a meet and signature it didnt seem possible. I did meet Dana and got a photo with him tho. :)

I loved that TV show that swapped people with the same name, to try out a different life. Mike Tyson was on the first episode I think and it was great. :)!

I'd become Houdini's best friend if I was selected for that show.

I am not sure about now since he has retired. Mike Tyson is a brand now more than ever so I am not sure whether or not he does random autographs at his shows.

I had the pleasure of my brother in law meeting him while I just sat there in awe back in the late 90s. He seemed to be very trained how to handle fans and randoms. he was fine.

jasonadkins 11-06-2012 04:27 PM

Everyone that I know in Vegas that has met him has nothing but the best things to say about him, whether they ran into him in the 1990's or yesterday. Always willing to take pictures and joke around, not sure on the autograph requests.

wwechampion619 11-06-2012 07:29 PM

sounds like trying to get him to take pics with the kids first then have them pull out some gloves and hoping for the best.

Only question left is time

wwechampion619 11-10-2012 08:42 AM

So, last bump on this but WHAT TIME DO YOU THINK HE WOULD SHOW UP IF IT STARS At 9

wwechampion619 11-10-2012 03:08 PM

I don't think I am going to go to this. Don't know what time to get there and I really don't want to sit there all night. Also from what I have heard from you guys, he isn't the greatest free signer

In another words i know the rules but choose not to follow them since my answer won't be answered fast enough and i don't care to improve these forums.

the1mcjensen 11-11-2012 08:22 PM

wwechampion619 11-11-2012 08:31 PM

YES, thats good, i was kind of nervous that he would sign. do you know what time he showed?

He sure doesn't need forum etiquette from someone who has zero activity (buy, sell, trade) in three years here. :eek:

Keep your mouth shut.

Autographz 11-15-2012 03:37 PM

Its late, but I'll add my experience. Met him last month here in the UK doing a paid signing, we were rushed through pretty quick, but all 3 times I encountered him that day he was really nice guy, really friendly. Obviously going to be different in non-paid situations but can't fault the guy.
