Mike Tyson reportedly is planning to launch a chain of high-end kosher restaurants.

The former heavyweight boxing champ is in talks with businessman Moshe Malamud, owner of the Franklin Mint and chairman of the Asian technology service provider emaimai, to break into the kosher-food business, the New York Post reported last Friday.

“They discussed the concept as well as the name, but nothing was finalized,” a representative of the kosher Manhattan restaurant Solo, where the men dined, told the Post.

Tyson decided last spring to begin following a strict vegan diet, which he says gives him more energy.
