Newspapers in Africa have fallen for a spoof story about heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson becoming a transgender woman.

The article, which was originally published by UK-based satirical website NewsBiscuit in November, reported the former world champion would now be called Michelle.

[...]

However, not everyone got the joke and African publications including Zimbabwe's Standard, Zambian Watchdog and SpyGhana websites all running with the story as a serious news piece.

He had been called Michelle but i think it would ve been a bad idea to mess up with Mike Tyson. http://peoplebynetworth.com/mike-tyson-net-worth/
