Mike Tyson banned from Britain, cancels U.K. book tour
Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson was forced to cancel the U.K. part of his book tour on Tuesday after learning that he's banned from the country because of previous convictions.
According to an Associated Press report on Tuesday, the 47-year-old Tyson, currently on a worldwide promotional tour for his autobiography, "Undisputed Truth," scrapped plans for a tour throughout London this week after his publisher, HarperCollins U.K., was made aware of recent changes to the United Kingdom's immigration laws, which forbid anyone sentenced to more than four years in prison from entering the country.
According to the report, Britain's Home Office declined to comment on Tyson's ban from the country. WAGENHEIM: Hunt, Silva battle to brutal draw with little significance
