Tyson was sent to hail in the US in 1992 for rape and served half his six-year sentence.

He suffered embarrassment in 2012 when a trip to New Zealand was called off with the government denying him a visa after a charity dropped their support due to his rape conviction.

Tyson is about to embark on another stand-up tour, called Undisputed Truth: Round 2.
