Los Angeles, Oct 4 Boxer-turned-actor Mike Tyson is recovering well after undergoing a neck surgery for degenerated disc, says his representative.
The boxing legend stunned onlookers Saturday, when he was seen sporting a neck brace at a Las Vegas charity auction held by the World Boxing Council and Hublot Watches.
Tyson has had titanium pins inserted to support his neck as a result of an old spinal injury, which had been causing him pain.
“It’s a very common surgery, especially for athletes. He feels great… just has to wear the neck brace to keep everything stable for the next three weeks,” tmz.com quoted Tyson’s representative as saying.
