Former boxing champ Tyson marries in Vegas by FOXSports.com
Updated: June 9, 2009, 8:04 PM EDT The third time may be the charm for Mike Tyson.
The former heavyweight boxing champion married girlfriend Lakiha Spicer in a ceremony at La Bella Wedding Chapel at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel on Saturday night, according to a spokesperson for the chapel.
E! Online and perezhilton.com also reported the nuptials.
The spokesperson for the chapel told BoxingScene that only Tyson and Spicer were present for the ceremony with the boxer dressed nicely with a tie.
Chapel owner Shawn Absher says the couple wed about 10 p.m. after arriving at the hotel from the Clark County marriage bureau in a chapel-owned limousine.
County marriage records in Las Vegas show the 42-year-old Tyson and 32-year-old Spicer got a marriage license about 30 minutes before their ceremony.
Tyson and Spicer, a resident of suburban Henderson, asked for a simple ceremony with nothing special, Absher said.
"They just wanted to say the vows and be married," he said. "It was very sincere."
Tyson and Spicer seemed very in love, Absher said.
"They were very heartwarming, and I think they really do love each other. He seemed happy - and his life's been up and down."
Tyson last boxed competitively in 2005. He had previously been married to actress Robin Givens and Monica Turner.
His first marriage ended after one year after Givens filed for divorce and said in a televised interview that she was afraid of Tyson. His marriage to Turner lasted five years.
Tyson's third wedding comes less than two weeks after Tyson's four-year-old daughter Exodus died tragically after accidentally hanging herself on a treadmill at her mother's home.
