Mike Tyson touches down in the name of chat

MIKE Tyson arrived in Scotland last night to fulfil speaking engagements in Glasgow and Aberdeen.

The former world heavyweight boxing champion returns to Scotland ten years after he fought Lou Savarese at Hampden Park, in a farcical non-event that lasted all of 38 seconds as Tyson pummelled his fellow American with enough punches to send the referee flying as well.

The self-styled "baddest man on the planet" will talk about his extraordinary life - he was the youngest-ever heavyweight world champion - and a boxing career that has rarely strayed from the controversial.
