Mike Tyson has said changes to UK immigration law banning him from entering the country are "disheartening".
The former boxer is barred from the UK due to a six-year sentence for rape that he received in 1992.
I was greatly disappointed when I learned of United Kingdom's immigration law changes that went into effect December 2012.
I have been coming to the UK consistently in the past decade so this change is disheartening since it affects my current entry standing.
I apologise to my fans that were inconvenienced, however, please know I am currently working diligently with the proper authorities to regain access next year for my UK tour...
I have a great deal of respect for the laws of the United Kingdom and will continue taking the proper steps for re-entry.
