World heavyweight champion boxer Tyson Fury will get a breath of seaside air when he visits Gorleston next month.
The boxer, who recently vacated the WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles, will make an exclusive appearance at the Ocean Rooms, where he will meet and greet fans.
Mr Fury will also take part in a question and answers session at the event, where he will speak candidly about his career, life and the sport.
Event promotor Leon Docwra said: 'This event is something Tyson really wants to do. He is at the top of the sport and there is a lot of pressure on him, so he is really looking forward to being in a positive atmosphere with a good group of people, which we always have at these events.
'He will have a lot to say, both about his past, and what the future has in store for him as well.'
