Tyson hosted a cadre of friends at the South Beach steakhouse, ordering a seafood platter of king crab and lobster. Surprisingly, Iron Mike had no steak, but loved his meal so much he ordered extra to bring home for his wife.

Tyson's Iron Mike Productions is promoting tonight's headlining fight between Argenis Mendez and Rances Barthelemy, who will meet in the ring to battle it out for the International Boxing Federation's junior-lightweight title.
