Mike Tyson is going to Braintree but not to fight

Mike Tyson is no longer a top boxer. His good days are over long time ago. He is now focusing his career on show biz and he is doing some acting. In November, he is expected to come to Braintree and meet some people and answer their question. This idea has come from Jimmy Clyne. The basic idea is that people will pay money to get a chance to talk with Tyson. He will answer questions to ordinary people about his own life and boxing career. About Braintree WIKIPEDIA wrote:

Braintree is a town of about 42,000 people and the principal settlement of the Braintree district of Essex in the East of England. It is ten miles north-east of Chelmsford and fifteen miles west of Colchester on the River Blackwater, A120 road and a branch of the Great Eastern Main Line

This will be a good publicity for both Mike Tyson and Braintree.
