Mike Tyson on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Boxer Mike Tyson's had a varied career since retiring from the ring and now he's added another string to his bow: 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant. (That's 'Dancing With the Stars' Argentina, in case you were wondering.)

And on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) Tyson provided an exuberant commentary for a video clip of himself dancing on the Argentine show.

When the clip started, he leapt up out of his chair, took off his jacket and gave an excited play-by-play that kept the person with their finger on the ABC censor button real busy.

When host Jimmy Kimmel asked Tyson if he'd perform his signature "pelvic thrust" move in person, Tyson laughed and said "Not for free!"

So will we get to see Mike Tyson vying to become the fist boxer to win the U.S. 'Dancing With the Stars'? Maybe, maybe not ... When Kimmel said "We've got to get you on the American 'Dancing With the Stars!'" Tyson explained that it's all about the money: "They don't pay as much as Argentina."

But, he does seems totally open to the idea: "Have check, will dance," he said. So will ABC and the 'DWTS' execs take the hint and get out their checkbooks? Stay tuned for updates.
