Former boxer Mike Tyson will launch his new clothing range in London today.
Iron Mike, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, will be hosting an audience with fans at Lillywhites sports department store in Piccadilly Circus.
He is also presenting the new Mike Tyson Collection, which features t-shirts influenced by his career and body art.
Tyson has this year taken to the stage with his show Mike Tyson Undisputed Truth, which saw him tell the story of his often troubled life.
The explosive boxer was the youngest man ever to become heavyweight champion of the world after he beat Trevor Berbick in 1986 when he was just 20.
But throughout his career he also courted controversy, was jailed for rape, bit opponent Evander Holyfield’s ear, went bankrupt and lost his four-year-old daughter in a tragic domestic accident.
Today’s event will be held in the London Fight Zone on Lillywhite’s top floor.
