Former heavyweight boxing
champion-turned-actor Mike Tyson said Wednesday that Italy is a
beautiful country and that he might even buy a property here one
“Italy does not change, in the sense that it always remains a
beautiful country. My wife studied in Italy and speaks Italian
and we were even considering buying a villa,” Tyson told
reporters in Turin.
“In particular, my goal is to remain close to the Italian film
industry,” he added.
The six-times world titleholder is in the Piedmont regional
capital with his wife Lakiha Spicer to shoot part of his latest
film, ‘Bunny Man’ and has been feted by residents and fans.
The 57-year-old boxing legend has featured in numerous films,
including several in which he has played himself.
