FORMER boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson will be answering a round of questions about his career when he appears in Pontefract next month.

Tyson will be talking about his life in the spotlight at the town’s Silks Nightclub, on Beastfair, on Wednesday April 25.

Tony Dunn, who co-organised the event, said: “It is an honour to have a world champion to Pontefract to entertain local residents.

“It is going to be an incredible night where Mike will talk about his life and do a question and answer session with the audience.

“There will be videos playing of his greatest fights taken from his one man show Undisputed Truth which he performed in Las Vegas.

“It has already proved to be very popular and tickets are flying.”

There will be a raffle and auction of sports memorabilia signed by the boxer. The show starts at 7.30pm and VIP ticket holders will get to meet Tyson and have their photo taken with him.

Tickets cost £50 or £80 for VIP. For more information call Tony Dunn on 07912 983671.
