Tyson rejected again by New Zealand

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

The New Zealand government on Friday blocked former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson from entering the country for a second time in as many weeks. A visa allowing Tyson to attend a charity event in November was cancelled earlier this month after the show’s sponsor, the Life Education Trust, withdrew its support for the ex-fighter’s visit…Another charitable group, the Manukau Urban Maori Authority, then backed Tyson and lodged a second visa application. But Associate Immigration Minister Kate Wilkinson said Friday that the bid had been unsuccessful. Iron Mike has received permission to enter Australia.
