Report: Tyson considering restaurant biz

Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is in talks with Moshe Malamud of the Franklin Mint to launch a high-end restaurant chain, the New York Post reported Tuesday citing a source.

The two talked shop at Malamud’s favorite kosher eatery, Solo, on New York’s Madison Avenue, where Tyson dined with his pregnant wife, Lakiha Spicer, on mushroom soup and mixed vegetables.

Tyson, who announced his decision to follow a strict vegan diet last spring, is said to have interest in breaking into the kosher-food business.

"They discussed the concept as well as the name, but nothing was finalized," a rep for Solo said.

Tyson’s rep had no comment.
