New Zealand bars Tyson

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has had his visa rescinded by the New Zealand government after initially being granted a visa to perform his one man Broadway show there with part of the proceeds going to charity. The visa was pulled after criticism from Prime Minister John Key. Tyson has toured in 15 other countries without a problem.

The scar on Iron Mike’s neck that you can see in the photo is due to some titanium pins put in his neck to add support to a degenerative disk.

From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
