Tyson apparently signed a voiceover deal with Adult Swim, who are hoping to air the cartoon later in the year.

The show, currently known as Mike Tyson Mysteries, is expected to be a smash hit and is already being referred to as the 2013 version of Scooby-Doo.

You won’t likely be sitting down with your kids to watch this show however, as Adult Swim is notorious for producing more ‘mature-minded’ cartoons.

It has also been revealed that a foul-mouthed pigeon will aid Mike Tyson in his crime-solving capers.

With several minor roles under his belt already and an interest in theatre roles, the next logical step for Big Mike had to be cartoons.

No matter which way you look at this, it’s bound to be hilarious.
