Mike Tyson’s appearance at the fight of Sultan Ibragimov and his cornerwork for Sultan unfortunately won’t go through.

The former undisputed champion didn’t get permission from Arizona authorities to travel to Atlantic City, N.J..

“I would have loved to work his corner, but they’re not going to let me travel to Atlantic City for it”, Tyson informed boxingtalk.

Tyson must get approval from a judge to travel outside of Arizona while charges against him are pending. Maricopa County officials never approved the former heavyweight champion’s trip to the fight. However, Tyson is being allowed to attend his daughter’s high school graduation in Washington on Friday.
