Mike Tyson, the former World Heavyweight
Champion, arrived at Shanghai Pudong International Airport this
morning, for a three-day visit in the city.

A large crowd greeted Tyson at the airport when he arrived,
however, he was quickly whisked off to Jinjiang Hotel on No.59, Maoming
Road S., one of the city’s most historic hotels and an appointed venue
hosting top officials from home and abroad.

Invited by Greg Lites, one of his friends, Tyson is set to cut the ribbon for a
new night club called Snatch later today. The club is holding a contest to win an exclusive picture with Mike Tyson here. Guests may also be treated with a live show
starring Tyson after the ceremony.

He will travel to Luodian tomorrow for a golf charity event.

Saturday, Tyson will hold a talk with abbot of the Jing’an Temple,
a famous Buddhist temple and scenic site in Shanghai, before his
departure.

Mike Tyson, known as “Iron Mike,” was born in New York City on June
30, 1966. He defeated a series of opponents in 1980s and added WBC, WBA
