Twenty years after being convicted of raping an 18-year-old woman and serving three years in prison for it, Mike Tyson is still paying the price for his crime.
Next month, Iron Mike was supposed to visit both New Zealand and Australia to perform his one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth. But, at the last minute, a charity called Life Education Trust that stood to benefit from the series of performances withdrew their support of the show because of Tyson's 1992 rape conviction. And, as a result, he had his visa from New Zealand cancelled, so he won't be able to perform there. He's still awaiting word on whether or not he'll be permitted to enter Australia.
New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key says that there is still a chance that the shows could go on in New Zealand if Tyson is able to find another charity to step in and sponsor them. But, as of right now, the undisputed truth is that Tyson won't be performing there.
