Boxing legend Mike Tyson is coming to South Yorkshire and weve got a
knockout dream prize to celebrate.
Today were giving a Star reader and a guest the chance to win a drink
with Iron Mike!
Our runner up will also meet him – with two top price VIP tickets to
his after dinner engagement at The Dome in Doncaster, on Monday,
Frank Bruno is special guest and the compere is Sky Sports boxing expert Steve Bunce.
Tyson, aged 39, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, is one of the greatest boxers in prizefighting history.
His speed, power and angry aggression made him the youngest ever world
heavyweight champ when he dropped Trevor Berbick to gain the World
Boxing Council title in 1986, aged just 20.
For a time he was invincible.
He had 50 wins, including 44 knockouts, two no-contests and just six
Tyson will spend two days in the area as guest of Askern based superfan
and close friend, Andy Booker – who is co-promoting the Doncaster show.
Newsagent Andy, 41, will take him home for Sunday lunch and for a couple of
drinks at his local. Our first prize is for a Star reader and a guest to join
them for a drink. One runner up gets a pair of VIP tickets, also including
a meet and greet, plus four course meal, at The Dome, Doncaster, on November
21, 2005. For a chance to win, collect two tokens from The Star.
