By Johnny Benz (April 7, 2008) Doghouse Boxing  
According to reports in the UK media, Mike Tyson will be in Sunderland next month. Tyson is set to be guest star at a dinner event in which Tyson will be asked questions.

The event Tyson guest star at will be held on May 28th at the Rainton Meadows Arena, in Houghton. Tickets for the event reportedly will cost £75.

At the event, Former Champion Richie Woodall will interview Tyson, as part of a British tour. The event's organizer is Martyn Devlin. Devlin runs the Bilton Hall Amateur Boxing Club, at Low Simonside.

Quoted in the Sunderland Echo, Devlin stated: "It's the sheer presence of the guy. He was the youngest world heavyweight champion ever. People in the trade know about Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran, but Joe Public knows Tyson."

Tyson's name recently made headlines as former foe Evander Holyfield has publicly been talking up a third encounter between the two. So far Tyson has yet to make his feelings on a third encounter public, however most indications from Tyson indicate the Former heavyweight Champion of the world is done with Boxing.
