He's no longer "The Baddest Man on the Planet." You could almost call former heavyweight king Mike Tyson "sweet."

Seems far-fetched, right? We're basing that on the surprise wedding he put together in Las Vegas and a reception food spread that would serve as a dentist's worst nightmare.

The impromptu ceremony went down at Las Vegas' M resort, at what was supposed to be a joint birthday party for both Tyson and his wife, Lakiha Spicer Tyson.

Saturday's 200 guests were greeted by a big curtain. When the curtain opened, Tyson and Kiki shocked the crowd with a wedding set-up. Married in a shotgun ceremony back in 2009, the Tysons renewed their vows.

The 44-year-old Tyson, who has spoken at length about what a wild man he was during his boxing career, tweeted that he's all about loyalty now:

One is now enough for me! The old player pimp has mastered monogamy!

Once the ceremony was finished, guests got to graze a candy bar that included Sour Patch Kids, cherry rock candy, gumballs and chocolate-dipped cherries. Each guest also went home with a bag of sweets from the Sugar Factory with logo chocolate bars, T-shirts and a whirly pop.
