“Mike Tyson” and “generous” are not exactly synonymous, but the former heavyweight champ — who is $30 million in debt — has scrounged up $5,000 to have late Cuban boxer Kid Gavilan’s body moved from the “cheap” cemetery plot where it rests to a posh section of the graveyard, says the New York Post.

Gavilan, credited with inventing the “bolo punch,” died penniless two years ago and was buried without a headstone. Perhaps Tyson is afraid he awaits the same fate..
