Three-time heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson married Lakiha Spicer on Saturday at La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton, Vegas Confidential learned Monday.
The marriage, Tyson’s third, came less than two weeks after his daughter, Exodus, 4, died after an accident in Phoenix.
Tyson and Spicer took out the marriage license Saturday night. They were alone when they got married about 10 p.m.
Tyson, who turns 43 on June 30, was married to actress Robin Givens from February 7, 1988 to February 14, 1989.
His second marriage was to Monica Turner, from April 19, 1997 to January 14, 2003. She is the sister of Michael Steele, the former Lt.Gov. of Maryland and current Republican National Committee Chairman.
Tyson won his first heavyweight title on Nov. 22, 1986, with a second round TKO over Trevor Berbick for the World Boxing Council title. He was 20 years and four months old, making him the youngest heavyweight champion in history.
After his shocking loss to Buster Douglas in 1990, Tyson didn’t regain a heavyweight title until 1996, when he knocked out Frank Bruno in the third round for WBC crown.Tyson added the WBA belt last that year by defeating champion Bruce Seldon in the first round.
