Mike Tyson is coming to Belfast, Wolves, Cardiff and Essex.

From another boxing website with east in the name:

Mike Tyson Set To Do Four-Day UK Tour This Year - And This Time Fans Will Be Able To Meet Iron Mike For Just 25.00!
by James Slater - Living legend Mike Tyson has appeared at a number of after dinner speaking engagements in the UK before, but, as fans who attended will be only too aware, the price of admission was up there in the 300.00 range if not higher. This will not be the case in November, however, as has been reported by Steve Bunce for Mirror Sport.com..

"Iron Mike" has four dates planned for November - in Cardiff, Belfast, Wolverhampton and Essex - and the price of admission for fans will be a cheap and cheerful 25.00 only (approx $40.00). Tyson, a huge fan of Great Britain and the country's boxing fans, is looking forward to the short tour, and he is said to be planning to meet and great as many fans as he can.

"I've always said that I wanted to fight, when I was at my peak, in Britain," Tyson said. "The British fans are incredibly loyal to me and I love the passion and their knowledge. It's not been an easy time [for me] recently, but I know my reception will once again be fantastic.

"I just want to meet and greet as many of the ordinary fans, the fans who rooted for me when I was up and rooted for me when I was down. There has always been two sides to Mike Tyson - there is Mike and there is Tyson. I'm not the fighter any more, I'm not the man who prepared for fights - I'm not that man any more. It was never easy being Mike Tyson the heavyweight champion and it took me a long time to realise it."

Tickets for the tour are sure to get gobbled up quickly, especially at such a great price. Think of Tyson what you will, but the 43-year-old has continued to be a man who has fascinated and excited fans for years now. The experience of meeting the former two-time ruler, when he is in the mood to talk and reminisce on the vast number of eventful fights he had in the 1980s and '90s should prove special to fight fans.

In the past when Tyson appeared at speaking engagements in the UK fans were treated to barely a few minutes in the same room as the heavyweight great; it seems this will not be the case in November. Adding to what should be a great four-night tour will be the presence of notable British fighters such as Barry McGuigan, Ken Buchanan and Enzo Maccarinelli.

Dates will be announced shortly.

It was in the sun that he was gonna be in belfast in November. Im away for 3 weeks in nov. Please let it be the week im at home!!!

didnt say in that article or the sun, but id imagine from the venues once they have been confirmed (dunno about the other cities but id guess its in the waterfront in belfast, these things usually are)

Ticketmaster (hate these money grabbing cunts) will probably sell them too. they usually manage to get their greedy little hands on tickets for everything. wankers.

I love watching his early fights, but wouldnt pay to be in the same room as him, and hear him speak.

What is so amazing about that? I can watch great interviews with him on youtube.

He isnt someone who i respect that much as a person.
Id prefer to watch boxing.
