Mike Tyson weds in Las Vegas - Tuesday 16th of June 2009

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has married for the third time, tying the knot with girlfriend Lakiha Spicer in Las Vegas, the owner of a wedding chapel said on Tuesday.

The wedding comes about two weeks after his 4 year-old daughter, Exodus, from another woman died in what police described as an accident at her Arizona home. The youngster was choked by a cord from a treadmill.

Tysons marriage to Spicer took place on Saturday in a private ceremony at the La Bella Wedding Chapel, its owner Shawn Absher told Reuters.

"No guests whatsoever, just the bride and groom," Absher said. "Very intimate, sincere. Mike seemed very happy."

Tysons union with Spicer is his third marriage. He was previously married for one year to actress Robin Givens and for five years to a doctor, Monica Turner.

He retired from boxing in 2005 after a career marked by controversy.

Tyson, 42, has a cameo in comedy "The Hangover," which opened on Friday and was the No. 1 movie at U.S. and Canada box offices over the weekend with nearly $45 million.
