US fighting legend Mike Tyson waves on the red carpet before the start of his one-man show called “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, Live on Stage”, in the Hollywood Theatre at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 14, 2012. Tyson has swapped the boxing ring for the cabaret stage, in a new one-man show which pulls few punches in recounting the ups and downs of his roller-coaster life.

When you think of America’s greatest singer songwriters — Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, etc — you always want to include Mike Tyson in that group. Because if you don’t he might punch you.

Jimmy Kimmel had the brilliant idea of having Tyson pen a tribute to LeBron James. This is the result. I think it’s clear from the video Tyson is a better guitar player than we thought.

If this doesn’t get LeBron fired up for Game 2 nothing will.
