SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn, June 11, 2019 – Ticket Summit will welcome WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson to its conference in July at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. “Iron” Mike, who still holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title at 20 years, four months, will meet and greet attendees at 2 PM on Tuesday, July 9.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Mike Tyson, Hall of Fame boxer and longtime Las Vegas fixture, to the Bellagio,” says Allison Simoes, Executive Director of Ticket Summit. “There’s no shortage of huge boxing fans among our attendees, and they will have the rare opportunity to meet a true living legend as a part of our event.”
Born in Brooklyn, New York and once known as “The Baddest Man on the Planet,” Tyson won his first 19 career fights by knockout or stoppage, with 12 coming in the first round. He captured the WBC title in 1986, unifying the heavyweight title for the first time in history by adding the WBC and IBF belts in 1987. All told, Tyson won 50 fights as a professional, 44 by knockout, against six losses.
During his appearance at Ticket Summit, attendees will be able to briefly meet and take a photo with the former champ. Other conference events have not been scheduled during his appearance time, to ensure that any who are interested will have a chance to take advantage of this opportunity.
