Boxing star Mike Tyson coming to Gorleston

FORMER heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson is coming to Gorleston next month.

The fighter is the main attraction at a boxing night at the Ocean Room on Friday, October 12 and tickets are in high demand.

The 46-year-old received an estimated $300m during his career, and 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.

'This town and the surrounding area has never seen anything like this and people are calling me from Scotland wanting to be part of this event,' revealed Leon.
