Tyson expresses delight over being voted into Boxing Hall of Fame

Posted By: Staff

New York, Feb.19 (ANI): Former world heavy weight boxing champion Mike Tyson is to be voted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Tyson, whose role in "The Hangover" earned him an invite to the Golden Globes, yesterday learned he's going to be voted into the Hall, which has previously inducted Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard.

The New York Post quoted a Tyson representative, as saying: "Mike is so delighted. It has been an amazing year for him so far."

Boxers have to wait five years after retirement to be eligible for the Hall.

Tyson retired from the ring in 2005. (ANI)
