Mike Tyson has turned down the opportunity to star in an X-rated film. Earlier this year, the former boxing World Heavyweight Champion admitted he was interested in breaking into the industry after allegedly being approached by representatives of porn superstar Jenna Jameson to appear in a movie with her. At the time, Tyson, who retired from boxing in July, admitted he was seriously considering the offer because he is desperate for cash after blowing millions. Now it has been revealed the disgraced pugilist, who was jailed for six years in 1992 on rape charges, has snubbed an offer to appear in a skin flick being produced by porn manufacturers Zero Tolerance. President of Zero Tolerance Greg Alves - whose previous movies include, 'No Holes Barred' and Tag Teamed' - has confirmed the company had approached Tyson with an offer but he refused after having a change of heart about his proposed career change. Alves said: "We're a little disappointed and a little bit surprised. The response we received hinted Mike might have some moral issues with being associated with the adult industry"Previously, American boxing journalist Pedro Fernandez had tipped Tyson for success in the sex industry - because he allegedly has a 14inch manhood.

He explained: "According to court documentation from Tyson's rape trial, his member is at least 14in long

"If Tyson brings out some of the ferocity that made him a champion, he could definitely become a successful porn star"
