Boxer Mike Tyson has been added to Perth Arena’s busy opening schedule in November.

The former heavyweight champion will appear on November 21 to speak about his life, “offering unknown personal truths and private anecdotes” as part of his Day of Champions Tour of Australia.

Fans will be given an opportunity to meet and have their photograph taken with the 46-year-old, but at a cost of $300 per ticket.

General admission tickets will start from $69.

Promotions company Markson Sparks said it would be a “once in a lifetime opportunity to spend time with the man who was the youngest boxer ever to win the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles”.

Perth will be the final stop of his week-long tour of Australia and New Zealand, which will see Tyson share the stage with a “select few entrepreneurial and motivational speakers”.

George Michael, Elton John and Matchbox 20 have already been confirmed to play at the venue in the opening week, which begins on November 10.
