Mike Tyson - Mike Tyson Warns Dubai Fans About Fake Appearance

Former boxing champion Mike Tyson has apologised to fans in the Middle East following bogus reports which suggested he is set to appear at a fight in Dubai.
Local advertisements stated The Hangover star would be in the United Arab Emirates next month (Jan12) for a boxing match, but Tyson insists he has no immediate plans to visit.
The sports star has warned fans not to fall for the fake promotion, and apologised for the confusion.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, Tyson writes, "There is a rumour about me being in Dubai on Jan 21st to do an appearance (at) a fight match. This is not true. I will not be there.
"Sorry to all my Dubai fans. Unfortunately, a bogus promoter pretending to represent me made an unlawful deal."
