Former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson will meet fans in Gorleston tonight.
The fighter is the main attraction at a boxing night at the Ocean Room and tickets have been in high demand.
The 46-year-old - who has had a chequered life including a rape conviction - is the subject of a documentary film about his life - called ‘Tyson’.
Organiser Leon Docwra is expecting almost double the turnout of when legendary Sugar Ray Leonard visited due to the word of mouth spread of its success.
“It’s never happened on these shores before - he’s just a living legend,” said Leon.
For tickets for the Mike Tyson night, call Leon Docwra on 07776 352450 or Carl Moore on 07919 026341.
