Mike Tyson’s School

Former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has been invited by the World Boxing Council to train in Bangkok as a traditional Muay Thai boxer. An official of the council is now in the US talking to Tyson’s managers about the offer.

If he accepts, he will be training at the Fairtex Muay Thai Camp in Samut Prakan. It is understood that Tyson’s representatives have already scouted the camp to make sure it has the right facilities needed for Iron Mike.

It’s also probable that Tyson may be staying at the camp or in its vicinity if he does come because the days of traveling with a big entourage and living in luxury hotels seem to have come to an end – unless he can get somebody else to pick up the tab.
