‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ boxer Mike Tyson lined up to visit Vauxhall Motors ABC in Ellesmere Port MIKE TYSON is set to leave the audience floored when he pays a visit to Vauxhall Motors ABC later this year.

, will be the star guest at the club’s after-dinner show on Sunday, March 14 at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall.
Tyson, the former undisputed heavyweight king, is set to hold court with the Merseyside boxing fraternity comes hot on the heels of Sugar Ray Leonard’s sell-out dinner show Vauxhall held in October.
Organisers of the event are expecting another bumper crowd for the visit of the self titled ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ and have already moved the show from Ellesmere Port Social Club to the Civic Hall.
Tyson, the youngest man to ever lift the world heavyweight crown when he ripped through a stunned Trevor Berbick in 1986, will be joined on the night by Sky Sports pundit and former IBF cruiserweight king Glenn McCrory.
Tyson’s whirlwind career in the ring has only added to his legend – seemingly as quickly as he stormed through the heavyweight division, his career and life was in tatters.
Suffering his first professional defeat to James ‘Buster’ Douglas in 1990, Tyson regained the WBC and WBA belts before relinquishing the former and losing the latter to Evander Holyfield. In his rematch with former cruiser king Holyfield, Tyson was infamously disqualified for biting his opponent’s ear.
Having served three years in prison, convicted of rape, Tyson returned to the ring in 1999 before retiring in 2005.Ticket holders will also be entertained by comedian Charlie Ale on an evening which is sure to draw in the crowds.
