Default Mike Tyson barred from entering NZ

The New Zealand government has blocked former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson from entering the country.
Tyson had originally been granted a visa, despite opposition from prime minister John Key, to visit in November for a charity event.
But associate immigration minister Kate Wilkinson said the visa has been cancelled after the show sponsor, the Life Education Trust, made clear it "no longer wants to have any involvement" with Tyson's visit.
"Given that the trust is no longer supporting the event, on balance, I have made the decision to cancel his visa to enter New Zealand for the Day of the Champions event," the minister said.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Australia's Department of Immigration and Citizenship said "I can tell you that a decision is still pending" on Tyson's application for an Australian visa.

Tyson's criminal history could prevent him from obtaining an Australian visa. Would-be visitors normally must pass a character test. Those with a "substantial criminal record" — which by the immigration department's definition includes people who, like Tyson, have been sentenced to more than a year in prison — would fail the test. But the department can still use its discretion to grant a visa.
